Installing OpenACS on Arch Linux

Prerequisites

Make sure the Arch User Repository is set up correctly. On a fresh installation, follow the instructions as described here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/yaourt

or, in greater detail, here: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-yaourt-to-easily-download-arch-linux-community-packages

 

Installation

Let's start with installing postgres. Theoretically, you could skip this step, since postgres is automatically pulled in as a dependency of openacs. In case anything goes wrong with your postgres installation, OpenACS will run into errors when trying to setup the database after installation.

➤  sudo pacman -S postgresql

Let's start the service and check if it runs correctly.

➤  sudo systemctl start postgresql      
➤  sudo systemctl status postgresql                                                                                                                               
● postgresql.service - PostgreSQL database server
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/postgresql.service; disabled; vendor preset: disabled)
   Active: active (running) since ....
 

Now let's install OpenACS.

➤  yaourt -S openacs

 

After the installation we can start it conveniently with systemd:

➤  sudo systemctl start openacs

➤  sudo systemctl status openacs
