Installing jaws #php #cms on #ubuntu lucid and #firebird backend

This is tutorial on how to install  jaws-cms on ubuntu and with firebird 2.1 backend
cd /var/www
sudo wget http://bits.jaws-project.com/releases/jaws-0.8.13/jaws-complete-0.8.13.tar.gz
sudo tar -zxvf jaws-complete-0.8.13.tar.gz
sudo mv html jaws

sudo chmod -R g+rw jaws
sudo chown -R www-data.www-data jaws
create an new database with flamerobin /var/lib/firebird/2.1/data/jaws.fdb

create a symlink , seems that if you put only jaws.fdb in the database field
then it needs to be located in jaws/data
cd /var/www/jaws/data
ln -s  /var/lib/firebird/2.1/data/jaws.fdb











start the installer http://localhost/jaws/install/
fill in the username for database and password
at database put jaws.fdb
Some screenshots created during the install process

All requirements are OK check the green results field
Also for php gd i had to install it this way
sudo apt-get install php5-gd
and for firebird php driver
check if is installed with
sudo apt-get install php5-interbase
and then restart the apache server so that php driver to be really loaded after install
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart












and here is the administration area that you can access with
http://localhost/jaws/admin














If you play with the gadgets and add them to the Layout area in a few seconds you have a blog, rss feed (i have added firebirdnews rss feed) and visitor count and then a search box
So a community style of site can be created in a few steps and it's very easy to start it
