NicToolServer InstallationThere are more specific instructions for FreeBSD 10 and CentOS.
1. Download the sources: NicToolServer
2. Expand the sources:
tar -xzf NicToolServer-X.XX.tar.gz
3. Install dependencies
NicTool requires that Apache and mod_perl be installed. There's a brief which Apache discussion here.cd NicToolServer-X.XX bin/nt_install_deps.pl
The nt_install_deps.pl script will attempt to install the required perl modules via ports on FreeBSD/Darwin and via CPAN on everything else. If ports are unavailable, CPAN is used.
4. Install the perl modules:
perl Makefile.PL make install clean
5. Move the distribution to our DocumentRoot:
mv ../NicToolServer-X.XX /usr/local/nictool/server
6. Configure Apache
This will vary from system to system, and dependent on what version of Apache you are using. A typical configuration for use with Apache 2 listening on localhost is what I shall present below. If you run NicToolClient on a seperate server, then you'll want your vhost to listen on an external IP address instead. These are additions to make to your httpd.conf file:<IfDefine !MODPERL2> PerlFreshRestart On </IfDefine> PerlTaintCheck Off Listen 8082 PerlRequire /usr/local/nictool/server/lib/nictoolserver.conf <VirtualHost 127.0.0.1:8082> KeepAlive Off <Location /> SetHandler perl-script PerlResponseHandler NicToolServer </Location> <Location /soap> SetHandler perl-script PerlResponseHandler Apache::SOAP
#PerlResponseHandler Apache2::SOAPPerlSetVar dispatch_to "/usr/local/nictool/server, NicToolServer::SOAP" </Location> </VirtualHost>
There is a bug in the current version of SOAP::Lite. You may need this patch for Bug #81471.
If you are using NicTool with Apache 2, you may be interested in this patch for SOAP::Lite and this patch for Apache::DBI. There is a thread on the support forums regarding the SOAP::Lite patch which has been deprecated! See the Apache2::SOAP thread in the discussion forums.
7. Create MySQL database and permissions.
8. Configure nictoolserver.conf
9. Restart Apache
10. Optionally Test Installation
Begin by creating a "test.com" subgroup in nictool, with a user in it. Then edit t/test.cfg to match the user/pass you chose.cd /usr/local/nictool/server vi t/test.cfg perl Makefile.PL make test **
** You should probably not do this on existing installs. Or if you really want to, back up your database tables first, test, and then restore them.
11. Set up nameserver exports
