Upgrade/Install Guidelines

  • If you database is setup as localhost, please move your database to this new server.    Otherwise, you database setting in tusk.conf should take care of remote DB server.

  • Git clone  OpenTUSK 5.0 from github into /usr/local/tusk as either root user or a user with sudo privilege
> sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/tusk/conf    ### We create both tusk and tusk/conf directories
> cd /usr/local/tusk
> sudo git clone git:// opentusk

  • Git clone  tusk, apache, shibboleth configurations into "/usr/local/tusk/conf" directory  if you have "conf" repository.   Otherwise, copy them from the old server.

  • Symbolic link the cloned directory to current  and setup install setttings in a YML file

> ln -s onentusk current
> cd current/install
> cp templates/conf/tusk/tusk_install.yml  /usr/local/tusk/conf/tusk_install.yml
> Modify conf/tusk_install.yml  appropriately.  This will be used for installation setup
> cd centos
> ln -s /usr/local/tusk/conf/tusk_install.yml .

  • Run install script.  This will create tusk/apache users if not yet created, install required yum packages and install Perl/CPAN modules.  The Perl/CPAN installation takes some time but be careful to enter your passwords a few times correctly.


  • Create data directories IF you need data/content directories  

  • Create SSL certificates  IF you need to generate ones.  Be sure to put some info including domain, country, state, etc in install_tusk.yml

  • Install shib IF you use Shibboleth authentication
> ./install_shib

## if your shib settings are in /usr/local/tusk/conf/etc/shibboleth
>  cd /etc/shibboleth

##  Remove or rename these files before soft linking them to /etc/shibboleth directory.
> sudo ln -s /usr/local/tusk/conf/etc/shibboleth/attribute-map.xml .
> sudo ln -s /usr/local/tusk/conf/etc/shibboleth/shibboleth2.xml .
> sudo ln -s /usr/local/tusk/conf/etc/shibboleth/tusk-idp.xml .
> sudo ln -s /usr/local/tusk/conf/etc/shibboleth/tuskLogout.html .
