This quick-and-dirty guide is intended for more experienced (or very impatient) users.
More detailed instructions can be found here.

and NOT yet installed ports databases/postgresql82-server, www/openacs or www/openacs-dotlrn

2. Installing OpenACS

 Enter the following shell commands:

# cd /usr/ports/databases/postgresql82-server # make install clean # cd /usr/ports/databases/p5-postgresql-plperl # make install clean # echo 'postgresql_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf # cd /usr/ports/www/openacs # make install clean # echo 'openacs_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf # /usr/local/etc/rc.d/postgresql initdb # /usr/local/share/doc/openacs/adjust_pgsql_conf.sh # /usr/local/etc/rc.d/postgresql start # /usr/local/share/doc/openacs/create_sampledb.sh # /usr/local/etc/rc.d/openacs start

Now open  in your browser http://localhost:8000 and fill in all neccesary data, finalize installation. The openacs server goes down afterwards.

# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/openacs start

That's all! You local OpenACS installation is accesible under http://localhost:8000

# cd /usr/ports/databases/postgresql82-server # make install clean # cd /usr/ports/databases/p5-postgresql-plperl # make install clean # echo 'postgresql_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf.local # cd /usr/ports/www/openacs-dotlrn # make install clean # echo 'dotlrn_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf.local # /usr/local/etc/rc.d/postgresql initdb # /usr/local/share/doc/dotlrn/adjust_pgsql_conf.sh # /usr/local/etc/rc.d/postgresql start # /usr/local/share/doc/dotlrn/create_sampledb.sh # /usr/local/etc/rc.d/dotlrn start
