Two RT installations

Hi,

Is it possible to have two RT installations on the same server? If yes, how?.

Thanks

Yes, see http://wiki.bestpractical.com/view/MultipleInstances

Based on the setup I just did for my new server, I would have to say yes…

few things you’d need to do(just off the top of my head… probably more
gotchas)

  • have mulitple install instances of RT ie /opt/rt3-live and /opt/rt3-test
  • have multiple mysql instances OR change the database name of RT before
    installation(I think having multiple mysql installs would be easier. IF
    multiple instances, obviously have to change the port for each
  • would have to have both RTs setup in your httpd.conf
  • can probably use the same fetchmail(if you are using fetchmail), if you
    aren’t using fetchmail, I don’t know how you’d do it.

Everything else could probably be reused…

good luck!

Definitely do-able. Start with the wiki page on MultipleInstances. Also, figure out how to use NameVirtualHost in Apache. Read all the options for configure and make sure you set up different local-prefixes for each instance. I can give you some working configurations (working in SLES10 anyway). I use postfix/sendmail and it’s pretty easy to set up aliases.
