[2403]4
[17957]5The following instructions assume the top level Greenstone folder is called
[19177]6Greenstone (which is the standard name used for Greenstone 2 releases).
[26971]7If you have got Greenstone from SVN, the top level directory will be greenstone2.
[17957]8
9The Greenstone Librarian Interface (GLI) code will be in the gli folder inside
[19177]10the Greenstone folder. If you are using SVN and you want to use the GLI to
[17957]11build collections, you'll need to check it out by running
[26971]12 svn checkout http://svn.greenstone.org/main/trunk/gli
[19177]13in the Greenstone folder.
[17957]14
[2403]15-- Compiling and installing on Unix --
16
[19177]17cd to the top level Greenstone directory (i.e. the directory
[17957]18where this file lives) and perform the following three steps.
[2403]19
[26971]201. ./configure --enable-apache-httpd
[2403]212. make
223. make install
23
[19177]24This will install the library.cgi and oaiserver.cgi executables to
[26971]25Greenstone/cgi-bin/linux.
[17957]26If you want to run Greenstone from a system
27cgi-bin directory you'll need to move the library executable and
[26971]28gsdlsite.cfg from Greenstone/cgi-bin/linux to your system cgi-bin.
[2403]29
30Note that the Greenstone directory structure is important to the operation
31of the software. Therefore the --prefix, --bindir etc. options to configure
32make no sense and will have no effect. If you want Greenstone to be
33installed somewhere specific (say /usr/local) you'll need to move the
[19177]34entire Greenstone directory there.
[2403]35
[26971]36Greenstone will install Apache into apache-httpd/linux. You can disable this
37by running ./configure without the -enable-apache-httpd option. In that case
38you'll need to set up your own apache to serve Greenstone. See   See
[17957]39http://wiki.greenstone.org/wiki/index.php/Setting_up_an_Apache_Web_Server_for_Greenstone_2_Walkthrough
40for more details.

42To compile the GLI, cd to the gli directory and run makegli.sh
43
[2403]44-- Compiling on Windows --
45
46Greenstone has been successfully compiled using Microsoft Visual C++
[11392]47versions 4.2, 6.0 and 2005. If anyone succeeds in compiling Greenstone with
48another compiler (or another version of VC++) we'd appreciate hearing about
[17957]49it at greenstone-devel@list.scms.waikato.ac.nz
[2403]50
[26971]51If you have got Greenstone from svn, you'll also need to download some Windows binaries.
521. cd to top-level greenstone2 folder.
532. cd bin
543. svn co http://svn.greenstone.org/main/trunk/binaries/windows/bin windows
[2403]55
[26974]56
[26971]57There is a batch script you can run to set up and compile Greenstone.
[26974]58
59If you want Greenstone to try and guess your Visual Studio setup, edit the
60makegs2.bat file and set SET_GS_ENV to true. Otherwise you'll need to set up
61your Visual Studio environment before running the make script.
62For example, run
63C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\vc\vcvarsall.bat
64
65To compile greenstone:
[26971]66For 64 bit machines, run
[26974]67   * makegs2x64.bat
[26971]68For 32 bit machines, run
69   * makegs2.bat

73For more information about compiling Greenstone, or for manual compling
74instructions, see
[26971]75http://wiki.greenstone.org/wiki/index.php/Compiling_Greenstone
[2403]76
[26974]77These scripts will unpack necessary zip files, set up paths etc, then compile
78Greenstone. They will install library.cgi and oaiserver.cgi to the
79Greenstone\cgi-bin\windows
[19177]80directory and server.exe to the top level Greenstone directory.
[17957]81
[26974]82To run the web library you'll need to set up a web server to serve Greenstone.
83Then you'll need to edit Greenstone\cgi-bin\gsdlsite.cfg. See
[17957]84http://wiki.greenstone.org/wiki/index.php/Setting_up_an_Apache_Web_Server_for_Greenstone_2_Walkthrough
85for more details about using Apache, or

87for more details about using IIS.
88
89To compile the GLI, cd to the gli directory and run makegli.bat.
