Web Stack Repository Updates

Some good news at the end of this week, the Web Stack package repository is back online tonight!

The IPS regression which prevents it from accessing packages in non-primary repositories is still not fixed though, so you will not be able to install normally from the Web Stack repository. Fortunately the workaround is working now so you can do 'pkg install pkg://webstack/packagename' instead of 'pkg install packagename' (assuming 'webstack' is the name you gave to the authority when adding it).

To summarize:

% pfexec pkg set-authority -O http://pkg.opensolaris.org/webstack webstack
% pfexec pkg refresh

I've posted some new content into it including packages for nginx and drupal so check it out...

Both of these new packages are in the early stages of development so they have not been tested much yet. As you run into any issues let us known at webstack-discuss@opensolaris.org!

Drupal

I included a small stub man page in the Drupal package to get you started so just type 'man drupal' after installation for some info. I also threw in a simple script to set up your system for a quick start with Drupal. It is definitely not for production use but if you'd simply like to quickly get a demo going it'll save you a few minutes (with this, I can reduce some of my "5 minutes setup" presentation demos down to "1 minute setup" demos ;-)

% pfexec pkg install pkg://webstack/drupal
% man drupal
% /usr/bin/drupal_evaluation_init

nginx

The nginx package is less polished at the moment and it is missing both a man page and an smf manifest. But you can just manually run /usr/nginx/sbin/nginx to get going...


Comments:

couldn't find /usr/bin/drupal_evaluation_init - after installing the drupal package (which it did and i find the man drupal)

It is best to read my blog in reverse order (newest articles first) because things are still changing rapidly with IPS and Web Stack so the latest info is always more up to date.

Refer to the later article on drupal-demo:
