This is very short, sorry. If you are having problems, email me.
- Uncompress the downloaded -bin.tar.gz file
- Create the directory /etc/arara
- Copy the file setup/arara.conf into /etc/arara/arara.conf (And edit it)
- Create the database tables for your database (setup/[dbtype].sql),
so if you are using mysql, you should use setup/mysql.sql
- Copy the setup/[dbtype].xml to /etc/arara/database.xml (And edit it). Again if you are using mysql
this would be "cp setup/mysql.xml /etc/arara/database.xml".
Note: The database.xml file may contain passwords and stuff, so it should not be readable by everyone (actually, only by the tomcat user)
- Copy setup/mapping.xml to /etc/arara/mapping.xml
- Copy arara.war into the webapps direcotry of tomcat (ie: cp arara.war /var/tomcat/webapps/arara.war)
- Restart tomcat
- Check the logfiles for any errors.
- Create the administrator user (run createAdmin.sh), this will create a user named administrator with the password you choose.
Note: The administrator can only be created once, after that the script is useless
- Connect to the service and use it (ie: http://localhost:8080/arara
