    11= Installing the Raptor Server Components (MUA & Web) on Linux = 
     3All Raptor components are made available on linux as noarch RPMs, allowing easy installs and upgrades and dependency management. These RPMs are made available as YUM repositories via the openSUSE build service (the recommended way to install), or you can download and install the RPMs (or source RPMS) manually. 
     5== 1. Installing via YUM (recommended) == 
     7The Raptor YUM repository can be found at where each supported distribution has its own directory containing a {{{.repo}}} file for you to use, and all appropriate RPMs. 
     9Installing via YUM involves adding this repository to your system (see 1.1) then issuing a {{{yum install}}} command (see 1.2). 
     11=== 1.1 Adding a YUM repository === 
     13How to add a YUM repository varies from linux distribution to distribution. Generally it involves adding the repository definition file ({{{.repo}}}) into the YUM repository collection (often {{{/etc/yum.repos.d}}}). Browse the repository linked to above, find your distribution, copy the link to the {{{.repo}}} file, and download it to the YUM repository directory. 
     15''CentOS 5 example (run as root)'' 
     17# cd /etc/yum.repos.d 
     18# curl -o raptor.repo 
     21Once you have the {{{.repo}}} file installed in the correct place, you can enable and disable it by editing the file and changing the {{{enabled}}} property to {{{enabled=1}}} (to enable) or {{{enabled=0}}} (to disable). If you followed the above instructions it should be enabled by default. 
     23=== 1.2 Installing the Raptor MUA and Web === 
     25Once your Raptor repository is configured in your YUM system, installing the Raptor MUA and Wb components simply involves issuing the following command (as root): 
     28# yum install raptor-server 
     31== 2. OR Installing manually == 
     33If you prefer to install the RPMs manually rather than through YUM, simple browse the Raptor repository at to find the RPM you wish to install (raptor-mua and raptor-web), download them, and issue a "{{{rpm -i $RPMNAME}}}" command.  
     35== 3. Installation Details == 
     37The RPMs will install the Raptor MUA and Web into {{{/opt/raptor/mua}}} and {{{/opt/raptor/web}}} and set up their SSL keystores, with the following file structure: 
     39* {{{/opt}}} 
     40 * {{{/opt/raptor}}} 
     41  * {{{/opt/raptor/mua}}} 
     42   * {{{/opt/raptor/mua/raptor-mua.jar}}} - The main Raptor MUA classfile 
     43   * {{{/opt/raptor/mua/conf/}}} - Contains all configuration files for the Raptor MUA 
     44   * {{{/opt/raptor/mua/lib/}}} - Contains all libraries used by the Raptor MUA 
     45   * {{{/opt/raptor/mua/keys/}}} - Contains the Raptor MUA's keystore and truststore 
     46   * {{{/opt/raptor/mua/logs/}}} - Contains the Raptor MUA's log files 
     47  * {{{/opt/raptor/web}}} 
     48   * {{{/opt/raptor/web/raptor-web.jar}}} - The main Raptor Web classfile 
     49   * {{{/opt/raptor/web/conf/}}} - Contains all configuration files for the Raptor Web 
     50   * {{{/opt/raptor/web/lib/}}} - Contains all libraries used by the Raptor Web 
     51   * {{{/opt/raptor/web/keys/}}} - Contains the Raptor Web's keystore and truststore 
     52   * {{{/opt/raptor/web/logs/}}} - Contains the Raptor Web's log files
