You can get the latest source code of Foreman from the git repository hosted at github.

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.

h2. Database
47 6 Ohad Levy
48 6 Ohad Levy
Foreman uses a database, this database can be shared with Puppet store-configs (they are compatible, as Foreman extends the puppet database schema).
49 6 Ohad Levy
By default, SQLite is used, if you want to use other database (e.g. MySQL) please modify the configuration file under +config/database.yml+.
50 1 Ohad Levy
51 6 Ohad Levy
If you want to share the database with Puppets (storeconfig), just modify +config/database.yml+ to point to the same database configuration as puppet is.
52 6 Ohad Levy
53 1 Ohad Levy
In both cases, please use the *production* settings.
54 6 Ohad Levy
55 1 Ohad Levy
to initialize the database schema type:
56 1 Ohad Levy
<code>RAILS_ENV=production rake db:migrate</code>
