    Date: 2011.08.01 | Category: etherpad, guide, install, installations | Response: 15

    UPDATE: These docs are now out of date, you should use the official install documents provided by the Etherpad Foundation.

    Installing Etherpad Lite on Debian/Ubuntu clean.

    Part 1 – Installing prerequisites

    apt-get install build-essential python libssl-dev git-core git libsqlite3-dev gzip curl
    # you will be prompted to press Y
    

    Part 2 – Installing nodeJS and NPM

    mkdir ~/local
    cd ~/local
    wget http://nodejs.org/dist/v0.6.12/node-v0.6.12.tar.gz
    tar -zxvf node-v0.6.11.tar.gz
    cd node-v0.6.11
    ./configure --prefix=$HOME/local/node
    make
    make install
    echo 'export PATH=$HOME/local/node/bin:$PATH' >> ~/.profile
    echo 'export NODE_PATH=$HOME/local/node:$HOME/local/node/lib/node_modules' >> ~/.profile
    source ~/.profile
    

    Part 3 – Installing Etherpad Lite and running it

    git clone git://github.com/Pita/etherpad-lite.git
    etherpad-lite/bin/run.sh
    # You will be prompted to type Etherpad Lite rocks my socks.
    

    You are now finished installing and Etherpad Lite should be running, you should be able to access it on http://localhost:9001

    Only if you have an old version of Debian (Lenny) or Ubuntu then you will need to install sqllite from backports. To do open /etc/apt/sources.list and add:

    deb http://backports.debian.org/debian-backports lenny-backports main
    

    Save and close the file then type

    apt-get update
    apt-get -t lenny-backports install libsqlite3-dev
    

    You may need to rebuild your modules if you have an error, to do this do an rm -Rf node_modules and run the startup script (run.sh) again!

    Want to run Etherpad Lite as a service? Follow this guide. Make sure you do a chown -R etherpad-lite on the etherpad-lite folder if you have run it as root or any other user before hand..

  • Installing Etherpad on Debian

    Date: 2010.03.10 | Category: debian, etherpad, google, guide, install, installations | Response: 21

    IMPORTANT NOTE: ETHERPAD HAS BEEN REPLACED BY ETHERPAD LITE. YOU SHOULD FOLLOW THIS GUIDE.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: THIS DOCUMENTATION IS NOW DATED.  You can now install Etherpad from apt.

    Installing Etherpad 1.0.1 with APT

    Add the following line as a source in your graphical package manager (In Ubuntu: System->Administration->Synaptic package manager; then Settings->Repositories and then finally Third party software), or edit the file /etc/apt/sources.list and add it there.

    deb http://apt.etherpad.org all .
    
    apt-get update
    apt-get install etherpad
    

    Answer the questions (if any, depends on your system settings)

    /etc/init.d/etherpad start
    

    Other Linux distributions
    Download the .tgz and unpack it
    Follow instructions in README icon smile Installing Etherpad on Debian

    BELOW IS THE OLD GUIDE for Etherpad V1 released by Google

    Install prereqs
    
    echo "deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian sid main non-free" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
    apt-get update
    apt-get install sun-java6-jdk
    

    If the above fails then do not continue.  The output of

    java -version

    Should read..

    java version "1.6.0_17"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_17-b04)
    Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 14.3-b01, mixed mode, sharing)
    apt-get install scala mysql-server libmysql-java mercurial
    

    Paste the below to /etc/profile

    export PATH
    export JAVA_HOME="/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun"
    export SCALA_HOME="/usr/share/java"
    export JAVA="/usr/bin/java"
    export SCALA="/usr/bin/scala"
    export PATH="/usr/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/mysql/bin:$PATH"
    export MYSQL_CONNECTOR_JAR="/usr/share/java/mysql-connector-java-5.1.10.jar"
    export JAVA_HOME SCALA_HOME JAVA SCALA MYSQL_CONNECTOR_JAR PATH
    umask 022

    Download the etherpad source to /usr/local/etherpad

    hg clone https://etherpad.googlecode.com/hg/ /usr/local/etherpad
    

    Set the environment variables

    export JAVA_HOME="/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun"
    export SCALA_HOME="/usr/share/java"
    export JAVA="/usr/bin/java"
    export SCALA="/usr/bin/scala"
    export PATH="/usr/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/mysql/bin:$PATH"
    export MYSQL_CONNECTOR_JAR="/usr/share/java/mysql-connector-java-5.1.10.jar"
    

    Add your domain to the superdomain section

    
    nano /usr/local/etherpad/trunk/etherpad/src/etherpad/globals.js
    
    

    Search for etherpad.com and replace it with your domain (confused? You will figure it out)

    Create the etherpad mysql db and privelidges

    mysql -u root -p
    

    Enter your password when prompted

    create database etherpad;
    grant all privileges on etherpad.* to 'etherpad'@'localhost' identified by 'password';
    quit
    
    cd /usr/local/etherpad/trunk/etherpad/
    ln -s /usr/share/java /usr/share/java/lib
    bin/rebuildjar.sh
    bin/run-local.sh
    

    Wait quite a while while it builds.

    Test by browsing to your server at http://hostnameofserver:9000

    Making pro work…

    Make sure it doesn’t redirect to etherpad.com for pro

    Edit /usr/local/etherpad/trunk/etherpad/src/main.js

    Replace all instances of Etherpad.com with yourdomain.com

    Edit /usr/local/etherpad/trunk/etherpad/src/static/crossdomain.xml

    Add to the obvious section

    
    <allow-access-from domain="yourdomain.com" to-ports="*"/>
    
    <allow-access-from domain="*.yourdomain.com" to-ports="*"/>
    
    

    Edit /usr/local/etherpad/trunk/etherpad/src/etherpad/pro/pro_utils.js

    Replace

    var fromDomain = 'etherpad.com';

    with

    var fromDomain = 'yourdomain.com';
