Installation Guidelines: Linux (Production: Cherokee/PostgreSQL)

Installs that we maintain are usually done using Cherokee & PostgreSQL

  • Cherokee is a high-performance web server with a graphical admin UI
  • PostgreSQL is a database with powerful geospatial support

The simplest way to install is using our attached installation scripts.

These assume that you are installing on Debian Stable (7 'Wheezy').

  • Ubuntu will be similar, although you may need to tweak the setup (e.g. different PostgreSQL versions)
  • There are notes on isntalling on RedHat-based systems here, although these aren't as well-maintained: InstallationGuidelines/Linux/Server/RedHat

This is split into 2 halves, as the 1st script can create a base image which is then customised per-instance using the configure script.

Note: We install using the latest Trunk versions of both Web2Py & Eden. This can occasionally cause teething problems, so if you want a safer route then you may be better off with the Apache/MySQL option or modifying these scripts to use the Stable versions of Web2Py & Eden.
