This installation is a bit trickier, as CentOS does not have Python 3 or any of the lua modules in its default package system.
Start by installing the following CentOS packages:
sudo yum install -y httpd git lua lua-devel gcc gcc-c++ kernel-devel unzip openssl openssl-devel readline-devel
Then, proceed to build LuaRocks (for lua deps):
wget http://luarocks.org/releases/luarocks-2.0.6.tar.gz tar zxvf luarocks-2.0.6.tar.gz cd luarocks-2.0.6 ./configure make sudo make install
Now build/install the required Lua modules:
sudo luarocks install lua-socket sudo luarocks install luasec OPENSSL_LIBDIR=/usr/lib64/ sudo luarocks install lua-cjson
Configure, compile and install Python 3:
sudo yum groupinstall -y development sudo yum install -y zlib-dev sqlite-devel bzip2-devel xz-libs wget http://www.python.org/ftp/python/3.4.3/Python-3.4.3.tar.xz xz -d Python-3.4.3.tar.xz tar zvf Python-3.4.3.tar cd Python-3.4.3/ ./configure make sudo make altinstall
Install the required Python 3 modules:
sudo pip3.4 install elasticsearch formatflowed chardet netaddr
sudo yum install -y java-1.7.0-openjdk-headless sudo rpm --import https://packages.elastic.co/GPG-KEY-elasticsearch (The following is taken from the ElasticSearch online guide:) Add the following in your /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory in a file with a .repo suffix, for example elasticsearch.repo: [elasticsearch-1.7] name=Elasticsearch repository for 1.7.x packages baseurl=http://packages.elastic.co/elasticsearch/1.7/centos gpgcheck=1 gpgkey=http://packages.elastic.co/GPG-KEY-elasticsearch enabled=1 sudo yum update sudo yum install elasticsearch
Configure and start up ElasticSearch:
sudo sudo /bin/systemctl daemon-reload sudo sudo /bin/systemctl enable elasticsearch.service sudo /etc/init.d/elasticsearch start
Check out a copy of Pony Mail:
cd /var/www git clone https://github.com/apache/incubator-ponymail.git
Set up Pony Mail:
cd /var/www/ponymail/tools python3.4 setup.py [... answer questions asked by the setup script ...]
Set up Apache httpd by adding, for example, the following virtual host configuration: This differs from the normal installation (because of CentOS specifics), so beware
LuaPackageCPath /usr/local/lib/lua/5.1/?.so LuaPackagePath /usr/local/share/lua/5.1/?.lua ServerName mylists.foo.tld DocumentRoot /var/www/ponymail/site AddHandler lua-script .lua LuaScope thread LuaCodeCache stat AcceptPathInfo On
sudo apachectl restart
Once this is done, you should now have a working copy of Pony Mail!
You may wish to tweak the settings in
site/js/config.js and your
elasticsearch settings once Pony mail is up and running.
Refer to the General installation documentation for detailed information about archiving messages, OAuth, mail settings and much more.
Apache Pony Mail (Incubating) is an effort undergoing incubation at The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), sponsored by the Apache Incubator. Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects. While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.
