27.4. Configuration files

Note: All the configuration files required for each software described in this book has been provided by us as a gzipped file, floppy.tgz for your convenience. This can be downloaded from this web address: http://www.openna.com/books/floppy.tgz You can unpack this to any location on your local machine, say for example /tmp, assuming you have done this your directory structure will be /tmp/floppy. Within this floppy directory each configuration file has its own directory for respective software. For example PostgreSQL configuration file are organised like this:

                     total 12
                     -rw-r--r--    1 harrypotter    harrypotter          58 Jun  8 13:00 Compile-PostgreSQL
                     drwxr-xr-x    2 harrypotter    harrypotter        4096 Jun  8 13:00 init.d/
                     -rwx------    1 harrypotter    harrypotter        1504 Jun  8 13:00 postgres.sh*
You can either cut and paste this directly if you are faithfully following our instructions from the begining or manually edit these to modify to your needs. This facility is there though as a convenience but please don't forget ultimately it will be your responsibility to check, verify, etc. before you use them whether modified or as it is.

To run PostgreSQL Database server, the following file is required and must be created or copied to the appropriate directory on your server.

  1. Copy the postgresql script file to the /etc/rc.d/init.d/ directory.

Tip: You can obtain the configuration files listed below on our floppy.tgz archive. Copy the following files from the decompressed floppy.tgz archive to the appropriate places, or copy and paste them directly from this book to the concerned file.
