I will drive into a 14 days vacation from 25.08.2001 (04:00 after midnight) to 10.09.2001 and will not have internet access nor can read possibly the reactions of yours and others. But I will read the last messages before I hop into the car and leave ...
I hope that the other members at sf-genericinst can help you all with your questions.
We have a new Release that can setup the cronjobs correctly and we give a new menue point on make setup called Run_Cronjobs_One_Time that can run the cronjobs from the production places. We do this step also in the Do_Full_Setup_in_One_Step.
We fixed several little bugs.
This is called the first BETA Release. We are quite close (5-6 Weeks, because I'm on vacation) for a stable release. The only problem is that in the SF code itself are some bugs that we must find and fix.... read more
many bugfixes, protab work and at last the completion of the configuration system is done in this new development release.
This is the first version that can be configured and setup and leads to a working SF WebSite part.
Now all config files (sf-genericinst/conf) are changed in the make setup step to contain the values from the questions in the make config step. And we copy to config files to the production pathes and the tests show us a working WebSite part.... read more
We updated the sf-genercinst documentation with help of SF friends. Please have a look into the work in progress at
The local.inc parse error is fixed. Please developers have a look at local.inc if it is copied over to /etc/local.inc and includes the header that loads the configuration include files !
The database setup is fixed. Now all Data is in it. We can give the complete WebSite a test cycle.
I had tonight problems cvs committing my changes. A left around #cvs.lock file of a possibly died cvs process locks my out of committing changes. I opend a Support request to SF asking for deletion of the #cvs.lock file. In the meanwihle please grap the 061 development files release.... read more

We do not use anymore user_id and group_id so we must
select the user_name and group_name and fill with this
information the user_groups table.... read more
today i done a complete overwork of the config/setup schema. Now we use the created config files CONFIG, CONFIG_PERL, CONFIG_PHP. They are created on make config.
The only real open part for complete configurable setup is the questionary for all values and the replacement of all programm calles with SF_PRG_ calles in all php, bash and perl scripts.
For now you have to modify in
sf-genericinst/scripts/setup/data/Makefile_global_variables_defaults... read more
the make setup now makes a database backup/dump if the database exists before droping the database.
And the calculate_user_metrics.php can now running because I added a new program scripts/setup/recalc_user_metric0.sh that takes the user of the new added SEED group as trusted users for user ranking/rating.
All this is now setup if you ran make setup.
The recalc_users_metric0.sh script you should ran if you add a new users to the new SEED group. ... read more
in this new 025 release I have began to devide the package dcomentation into seperate folders. Also there are two way in installation: 1. complete install all packages yourself. This covers my documentation today. 2. Test waht version of packages are installed and try to fogure out how we can put those version to work with Sourceforge. This is today not covered. I have began to add test scripts to find out those things. This is ALPHA code. So I deactivated this in the Makefile. If someone wants to try you can do a... read more
now I have the best fill_db.sh script that really setup the database right with hopfully all patches included that all of you show me. Further more the sf-genericinst contains now a working version of the alexandria sources because there was a long period where the CVS version was broken. BUT THERE IS AN ERROR IN THE CODE: If you try to register a new project you get on step 4 an database error: ... [read more](/p/sf-genericinst/news/2001/03/release-020-is-out-with-best-filldbsh-/)
This release has many changes and modifications. To mention is the
now fully working setup of the database tables with the script
will setup the complete initial database with the SUPER ADMIN
To do this was much work needed to transform the SF database files without real modifing the files in place. The story is that no one at sourcforge has ever taken the long way in setting up a complewte and empty new SourceForge Site a second time. This fill_db.sh script can do this.... read more
We have now a better Database setup of the needed
SF structures and default values. Please follow the documentation .
We have now a working make setup that creates us a basic
startpoint before we install all other thirdparty programs that
we need. We are still at 50% finished, because the work is
more complicated and more timeconsuming to get the backend sources cleaned and adapted to our file layout. Sorry for that. We now work on the latest CVS changes from alexandria. But no problem found with the changes from Sourceforge Team.... read more
We have now many backend services running. But a big part is left because we must adapt all the cronjob scripts.
We have Database access for perl and Python, so we hope that this task is not so complicated as it looks like today.
We found if ! We fixed it !
What ? The sfcache directory need to be setup.
We have got to a point that the WebSite is working. Only a bug in the main page of the sourceforge installation remains. But all other website tools seems to work.
Todo: We have now to concentrate on the backend to get working: DNS, CVS, CVSWEB, MAILMAN, fileforge, etc.
See the adsl project cvs tree working now.
Hi all !
We are up and running but SF don't let us use the cvs not shell server. We must wait until theire gone through the list of 300 open support requests I saw today.
