3.8.0 Install


#1

Is there a way to explicitly turn off the standalone server during
install/compile? the previous versions didn’t force it. I’m trying to
stay away from the extra perl modules as I don’t believe I’ll be using
it at all. I’ve tried various configure switches but it doesn’t appear
to be possible. If this is ignorable that would be fine too…

./configure --with-web-handler=modperl2 --with-db-type=mysql --enable-gd

STANDALONE missing dependencies:
Net::Server::PreFork…MISSING
HTTP::Server::Simple >= 0.34…MISSING
HTTP::Server::Simple::Mason >= 0.09…MISSING
Net::Server…MISSING

Any suggestions would be great…

There is not. We’ve made it a core RT dependency. The additional
dependencies are relatively light-weight and pure perl and we felt
they were an adequate tradeoff for the significant debugging and setup
benefits.

(The web based configuration tool itself wasn’t quite ready to
announce as part of 3.8.0, but once you have installed RT 3.8.0, if
you run standalone_httpd without a working database, RT will guide you
through configuration and database provisioning. I’m hoping we’ll see
that as ‘officially recommended’ for 3.8.1. But it depends on the
standalone server.)
