Tip

This is a wiki page. To edit it, Create a Funtoo account. Then log in and then click here to edit this page. See our editing guidelines to becoming a wiki-editing pro.


There are multiple ways to install Liferay on your Funtoo System. Note: I will use tomcat as server, there might be slight differences if you want to use another server like glassfish.

1) Tomcat + Liferay - Manual setup.

2) Tomcat + Liferay - Bundle.

3) Tomcat + Liferay - Ebuild.


I have chosen to use the third method.

Tomcat + Liferay - Ebuild:

First we need to add an overlay (https://github.com/cvut/gentoo-overlay) to our current system, since the ebuild is not part of the gentoo,funtoo tree. You need to have layman correctly installed. Then add the following git overlay using layman:

layman -o https://raw.github.com/cvut/gentoo-overlay/master/overlay.xml -f -a cvut

Note

You need to have Java (JDK)

Now install: 'emerge liferay-portal'

For liferay to work you need a SQL Database.

a) Postgresql

b) DB2 -IBM


Liferay supports many different DBs but I would chose a) or b): Install your DB and create a new user (=liferay-user) and a new Database (=lportal). Start your DBs Deamon and make sure your firewall (iptables) allows loopback access for localhost.

Then configure /etc/liferay-6.2/portal-context.xml and /opt/liferay-portal-6.x/... to use the DB correctly. (Details comming soon, this howTO is not ready yet)
