Installing MojoMojo

On FreeBSD, install the p5-MojoMojo package. A Debian package for MojoMojo will soon be available.

TODO: document where files end up after installation. (alternatively, run updatedb and locate mojomojo_server.pl)

System Requirements

  • Perl 5.8+ and Catalyst 5.7+
  • database: in theory, any database back-end supported by DBIx::Class. MojoMojo has been successfully tested with SQLite, PostgreSQL and MySQL.
  • memory requirements: on Linux, 60Mb per FastCGI process, regardless of the wiki database size or back-end type
  • external library dependencies:
    • libxml2 for Atom feeds
    • image manipulation libraries for attachment support, required by Imager: libpng-dev, libgif-dev, libjpeg-dev (or libjpeg62-dev)

Installation

  1. install Catalyst. This can be as easy as cpan Catalyst::Runtime

  2. install the external libraries. For example on Ubuntu, run:

    aptitude install libxml2 libpng-dev, libgif-dev, libjpeg-dev
    

    On Windows, you can find libxml2 and its dependencies at http://www.zlatkovic.com/pub/libxml/. You'll need libxml2.dll, iconv.dll and zlib1.dll in a directory listed in PATH.

  3. install MojoMojo:

    To see how likely the installation tests are to succeed, check the CPAN Testers status of the MojoMojo dependencies.

  4. configure MojoMojo

Here is an older example installation progress.
