30.7. Compile and install FAQ-O-Matic

Before you Compile, Decompress the tarball (tar.gz).

        [root@deep ] /# cp FAQ-O-Matic-version.tar.gz /var/tmp/
        [root@deep ] /# cd /var/tmp/
        [root@deep ]/tmp# tar xzpf FAQ-O-Matic-version.tar.gz

You need to compile, to install the Faq-O-Matic program on your computer, move into the new FAQ-O-Matic directory and type the following commands on your terminal:

          [root@deep ] /FAQ-OMatic-2.709# perl Makefile.PL
          [root@deep ] /FAQ-OMatic-2.709# make
          [root@deep ] /FAQ-OMatic-2.709# make install
          [root@deep ] /FAQ-OMatic-2.709# mv fom /home/httpd/cgi-bin/           (1)
          [root@deep ] /FAQ-OMatic-2.709# mkdir -p /home/httpd/cgi-bin/fom-meta
          [root@deep ] /FAQ-OMatic-2.709# mkdir -p /home/httpd/faqomatic
          [root@deep ] /FAQ-OMatic-2.709# chown root.www /home/httpd/cgi-bin/fom
          [root@deep ] /FAQ-OMatic-2.709# chown -R www.www /home/httpd/cgi-bin/fom-meta/
          [root@deep ] /FAQ-OMatic-2.709# chown -R www.www /home/httpd/faqomatic/

Or wherever your CGIs live.

Note: You'll receive a temporary password via mail during the compilation of the software. This password will be necessary to complete later the installation of Faq-O-Matic through the web interface.
