Installation and Setup
Get the code and install it:
We recommend installing using pip and virtualenv:
# grab the install requirements from the ckan mercurial repo wget http://knowledgeforge.net/ckan/hg/raw-file/tip/pip-requirements.txt # create a virtualenv to install into virtualenv --no-site-packages pyenv-ckan # install using pip-requirements pip -E pyenv-ckan install -r pip-requirements.txt
Make a config file as follows:
# NB: you need to activate the repository paster --plugin ckan make-config ckan config.ini
Tweak the config file as appropriate and then setup the application:
paster --plugin ckan setup-app config.ini
NB: you'll need to setup a database -- see sqlalchemy.url config option. We support any database supported by sqlalchemy.
Run the webserver:
paster serve config.ini
Point your browswer at: localhost:5000 (if you set a different port in your config file then youl will need to change 5000 to whatever port value you chose).
