Latest source code¶
Latest development code¶
Foreman has now moved to using Rails 3 and Bundler to get up and running. This is the preferred way to get Foreman if you want to benefit from the latest improvements. By using the git repository you can also upgrade more easily. You will need to have Bundler installed manually for now (check your distribution repositories, or install it via rubygems).
to get latest "development" version do:
You will want to make sure that you have one of the mysql-devel, postgresql-devel, and sqlite-devel libraries installed so the database gems can install properly.
also, you would also need gcc ruby-devel, libxml-devel, libxslt-devel and libvirt-devel packages
git clone https://github.com/theforeman/foreman.git -b develop cd foreman # must have the bundler gem installed -- gem install bundle bundle install --without mysql mysql2 sqlite test development --path vendor # or postgresql cp config/settings.yaml.example config/settings.yaml cp config/database.yml.example config/database.yml RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rake db:migrate # (to set up database schema)
You can run Foreman with the command "bundle exec rails s -e production"
Latest stable version¶
The old rails2 version still available under a branch
to get latest "stable" version do:
git clone https://github.com/theforeman/foreman.git -b 0.4-stable cd foreman git submodule init git submodule update
if you are behind a proxy or firewall and dont have access to github using the git protocol, use http protocol instead (e.g.)
git clone https://github.com/theforeman/foreman.git foreman cd foreman sed -i 's/git:\/\//http:\/\//g' .gitmodules git submodule init git submodule update
