couple installation hiccups

Reported by joep | August 7th, 2010 @ 01:53 PM

I installed webiva yesterday and ran into a couple of issues installing on a vanilla mac laptop.

  1. The quick_install script assumes that the mysql socket file is in one of two places, but it was in neither for me. Using 'mysql_config --socket' seems a better way to go.

  2. As per the instructions, I started the server with 'script/server' and started the background stuff with 'script/background'. Unfortunately the first defaults to the development environment, and the second defaults to the production environment, resulting in mismatched socket numbers. Took me a little while to figure that one out.

Other than that, I'm pretty impressed with what I have seen so far.

    Just switched to the development branch and the first issue was (sort of) addressed, in that it pauses and waits -- rather cryptically -- for the socket file to be typed in.

    Hi Joe,

    The prompt should have asked your for the mysql socket - I've put in a change to use mysql_config by default though so hopefully that will be more general for most platforms.
