Introduction

This document describes how to set up the dotclear open source blogging engine on an Arch Linux system.

Before You Install

Template:Box Note

Installation

Step 1: Check PHP Configuration

# vim /etc/php/php.ini

Goto:

; available extensions

and enable, if not already enabled:

extension=gd.so
extension=gettext.so
extension=iconv.so
extension=mysql.so

Step 2: Prepare MySQL Database

You need to create a dotclear database for the blog to write stuff to. One can choose dotclear2 for the db name, dotclear for the username, and dotclearpass for the password. Assuming you've already accessed your mysql install and set a root password:

$  mysql -u root -p
mysql> CREATE DATABASE dotclear2;
mysql> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON dotclear2.* TO "dotclear2"@"localhost" IDENTIFIED BY "dotclearpass";
mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
mysql> QUIT;

Step 3 : Install dotclear
