sudo apt-get install mysql-server sudo apt-get install python-mysqldb sudo apt-get install memcached sudo apt-get install memcached-dev sudo apt-get install python-memcache mysql -uroot -p mysql> create database reviewboard; Query OK, 1 row affected (0.00 sec) mysql> create user 'rb'@'localhost' identified by 'rb_password'; Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec) mysql> grant all on reviewboard.* to 'rb'@'localhost'; Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec) mysql> exit Bye sudo apt-get install patch sudo apt-get install subversion sudo apt-get install python-svn sudo apt-get install python-setuptools sudo easy_install reviewboard sudo rb-site install /var/www/reviewboard sudo chown -R www-data /var/www/reviewboard/htdocs/media/uploaded sudo chown -R www-data /var/www/reviewboard/data *sudo chown -R www-data /var/www/reviewboard/htdocs/media/ext* sudo chown -R www-data /var/www/reviewboard/htdocs/static/ext cd /etc/apache2/sites-available cp /var/www/reviewboard/conf/apache-wsgi.conf reviewboard.conf cd ../sites-enabled ln -s ../sites-available/reviewboard.conf . *If I remove 000-default folder\file, I get this webpage not available error..* optional steps (Because default site is still enabled) <=== *These do NOT seem to be optional steps anymore* sudo a2dissite 000-default sudo a2ensite reviewboard sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart *This is a very important step; got it from https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/reviewboard/_D12QMhA8OY* *change the "/var/www/reviews/conf/settings_local.py" ALLOWED_HOSTS = ['localhost'] to ALLOWED_HOSTS = ['*'].* *May be we can put this in the installation instructions page as concrete steps instead of general directions?* Now to the next steps.. playing with rb-tools.
