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

h2. Database
60 6 Ohad Levy
61 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).
62 14 Ohad Levy
By default, SQLite is used, if you want to use other database (e.g. [[FAQ#I-want-to-use-MySQL|MySQL]]) please modify the configuration file under +config/database.yml+.
63 1 Ohad Levy
64 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.
65 6 Ohad Levy
66 1 Ohad Levy
In both cases, please use the *production* settings.
67 6 Ohad Levy
68 1 Ohad Levy
to initialize the database schema type:
69 11 Ohad Levy
<pre>
70 11 Ohad Levy
RAILS_ENV=production rake db:migrate
71 11 Ohad Levy
</pre>

79 6 Ohad Levy

82 6 Ohad Levy
and point your browser to http://foreman:3000
