4The following instructions assume the top level Greenstone folder is called
5Greenstone (which is the standard name used for Greenstone 2 releases).
6If you have got Greenstone from SVN, the top level directory will be greenstone2.
7
8The Greenstone Librarian Interface (GLI) code will be in the gli folder inside
9the Greenstone folder. If you are using SVN and you want to use the GLI to
10build collections, you'll need to check it out by running
11 svn checkout http://svn.greenstone.org/main/trunk/gli
12in the Greenstone folder.
13
14-- Compiling and installing on Unix --
15
16cd to the top level Greenstone directory (i.e. the directory
17where this file lives) and perform the following three steps.
18
191. ./configure --enable-apache-httpd
202. make
213. make install
22
23This will install the library.cgi and oaiserver.cgi executables to
24Greenstone/cgi-bin/linux.
25If you want to run Greenstone from a system
26cgi-bin directory you'll need to move the library executable and
27gsdlsite.cfg from Greenstone/cgi-bin/linux to your system cgi-bin.
28
29Note that the Greenstone directory structure is important to the operation
30of the software. Therefore the --prefix, --bindir etc. options to configure
31make no sense and will have no effect. If you want Greenstone to be
32installed somewhere specific (say /usr/local) you'll need to move the
33entire Greenstone directory there.
34
35Greenstone will install Apache into apache-httpd/linux. You can disable this
36by running ./configure without the -enable-apache-httpd option. In that case
37you'll need to set up your own apache to serve Greenstone. See   See
38http://wiki.greenstone.org/wiki/index.php/Setting_up_an_Apache_Web_Server_for_Greenstone_2_Walkthrough
39for more details.

41To compile the GLI, cd to the gli directory and run makegli.sh
42
43-- Compiling on Windows --
44
45Greenstone has been successfully compiled using Microsoft Visual C++
46versions 4.2, 6.0 and 2005. If anyone succeeds in compiling Greenstone with
47another compiler (or another version of VC++) we'd appreciate hearing about
48it at greenstone-devel@list.scms.waikato.ac.nz
49
50If you have got Greenstone from svn, you'll also need to download some Windows binaries.
511. cd to top-level greenstone2 folder.
522. cd bin
533. svn co http://svn.greenstone.org/main/trunk/binaries/windows/bin windows
54
55There is a batch script you can run to set up and compile Greenstone.
56For 64 bit machines, run
57   * makegs264.bat
58For 32 bit machines, run
59   * makegs2.bat
60
61For more information about compiling Greenstone, or for manual compling instructions, see
62http://wiki.greenstone.org/wiki/index.php/Compiling_Greenstone
63
64These scripts will unpack necessary zip files, set up paths etc, then compile Greenstone.
65
66This will install library.cgi and oaiserver.cgi to the Greenstone\cgi-bin\windows
67directory and server.exe to the top level Greenstone directory.
68
69To run the web library you'll need to set up a web server to serve Greenstone. Then you'll need to edit Greenstone\cgi-bin\gsdlsite.cfg. See
70http://wiki.greenstone.org/wiki/index.php/Setting_up_an_Apache_Web_Server_for_Greenstone_2_Walkthrough
71for more details about using Apache, or

73for more details about using IIS.
74
75To compile the GLI, cd to the gli directory and run makegli.bat.
