If you are using PostgreSQL, you have to create a database for Plume.
service postgresql start su - postgres createuser -d -P plume createdb -O plume plume
Before starting Plume, you’ll need to create a configuration file, called
Here is a sample of what you should put inside.
# The address of the database # (replace USER, PASSWORD, PORT and DATABASE_NAME with your values) # # If you are using SQlite, use the path of the database file (`plume.db` for instance) DATABASE_URL=postgres://USER:PASSWORD@IP:PORT/DATABASE_NAME # For PostgreSQL: migrations/postgres # For SQlite: migrations/sqlite MIGRATION_DIRECTORY=migrations/postgres # The domain on which your instance will be available BASE_URL=plu.me # Secret key used for private cookies and CSRF protection # You can generate one with `openssl rand -base64 32` ROCKET_SECRET_KEY= # Mail settings MAIL_SERVER=smtp.example.org MAIL_USER=example MAIL_PASSWORD=123456 MAIL_HELO_NAME=example.org MAIL_ADDRESSemail@example.com
For more information about what you can put in your
see the documentation about environment variables.
Now we need to run migrations.
Migrations are scripts used to update the database.
They are run by
diesel that we previously installed.
To run the migrations, you can do:
diesel migration run
Migrations should be run after each update. When in doubt, run them.
After that, you’ll need to setup your instance, and the admin’s account.
plm instance new plm users new --admin
You will also need to initialise search index
plm search init
For more information about these commands, and the arguments you can give them, check out their documentation.
Now that Plume is configured, if you are in a production environment you probably want to configure your init system to make it easier to manage.
