CPAN-Testers-WWW-Preferences ============================ This distribution contains the files used to run and manage the CPAN Testers Preferences website. The CPAN Testers Preferences website is built on top of the Labyrinth Website Management System. As such, the code to drive the website is conatined within the Labyrinth and associated plugin prerequisites. In order to define the website in terms of functionality, layout and style, the files within the './vhost' directory of this distribution should be installed into your web server's virtual host directory. Included in the distribution is a C<vhost.conf> file, which contains the virtual host settings to implement the site using the Apache Web Server. INSTALLATION This distribution is in two parts, the first is the installer and the second are the website files. In the first instance the installer will install Labyrinth and associated plugins. These library modules form the engine of the website. These can be installed as perl Makefile.PL make make test make install In the second instance, download the latest tarball and copy the contents of the 'vhost' directory into the directory you plan to use to provide access to the Admin. Create an appropriate database in MySQL and load the contents of the SQL file, ./cgi-bin/db/cpanprefs-master.sql. Note that this only provides the base tables and contents. You then need to update the configuration file, ./cgi-bin/config/settings.ini, with the necessary database connection settings, together with the correct paths to your virtual directory. Then you'll need update the run script, ./cgi-bin/pages.cgi, to point your configuration file. Finally, you'll need to update your web server as necessary. The CPAN Testers Preferences website runs under Apache2, and the vhost file, ./vhosts.conf, can be adapted as appropriate for other web servers applications. CPAN TESTERS FUND CPAN Testers wouldn't exist without the help and support of the Perl community. However, since 2008 CPAN Testers has grown far beyond the expectations of it's original creators. As a consequence it now requires considerable funding to help support the infrastructure. In early 2012 the Enlightened Perl Organisation very kindly set-up a CPAN Testers Fund within their donatation structure, to help the project cover the costs of servers and services. If you would like to donate to the CPAN Testers Fund, please follow the link below to the Enlightened Perl Organisation's donation site. https://members.enlightenedperl.org/drupal/donate-cpan-testers If your company would like to support us, you can donate financially via the fund link above, or if you have servers or services that we might use, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with details. Our full list of current sponsors can be found at our I <3 CPAN Testers site. http://iheart.cpantesters.org COPYRIGHT AND LICENCE Copyright (C) 2008-2015 Barbie for Miss Barbell Productions.
