Forum OpenACS Q&A: Third Party APM Repositories?

Posted by Dafydd Crosby on
I'd like to set up a third party repository for my own custom packages, but by going to acs-admin/install/ it looks like I can only use the repository. Is there a way to make my own repository in OpenACS?

Yes.. from the acs-admin/install interface you can only install packages found on the repo or locally.

But if you go to the Package Manager ( /acs-admin/apm ) at the bottom youll see some actions you can perform, among them : "Load a new package from a URL or local directory". This will take you to a form that allows you to specify a URL to a giving apm file, or, to a folder containing serverl apm files , or local path a apm file.

This way you could publish url's to your apm files and anyone interested would be able to install them via this interface.
