    Running 1.8/1.9 on Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard?

      Just a precautionary check -- anyone run into issues running Clearspace (MySQL/Tomcat infrastructure) on Mac OS X 10.5.1 Leopard? Working on a deployment config and wanted to see if anyone else has blazed a trail.

          I am not aware of any current issues with running Clearspace on Tomcat/MySQL on Mac OS X Leopard.  This configuration should work.

              So far, so good. MySQL and Tomcat both working pretty much as expected, and the WAR install went smoothly using the Tomcat Manager. My installation notes enclosed.


              Two open questions at this point:


              serving on port 80 as opposed to 8080 -- checking out Tomcat via Apache mod_proxy, mod_jk, or simply doing a portfwd at the OS level. The Tomcat/Apache interactions are not doing exactly what I'd expect, so I'm leaving it as-is for now.


              creating a virtual host to serve /clearspace at / -- Tomcat virtual host instructions tried, but I don't think I have them quite right.


              Log --


              Base Leopard install

              Set to static IP, assigned DNS

              installed xcode

              installed MacPorts 1.5.0 http://www.macports.org/install.php -- turned out not to need Macports, at least not yet

              installed Firefox

              downloaded and compiled mysql 5.0.45 from source -- http://hivelogic.com/narrative/articles/installing-mysql-on-mac-os-x

              Installed Tomcat

              http://tomcat.apache.org/download-60.cgi#6.0.14 in /usr/local

              Added admin user to Tomcat manager

              Did NOT change Tomcat default port to 80 (requires run as root)

              Created stop/start scripts for Tomcat

              created DB, imported schema

              installed clearspace 1.9 WAR via Tomcat manager


              Can't connect to DB -- need to install JNDI source

              Downloading MySQL connector/J http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/j/5.1.html and installed in /lib for Tomcat


              Clearspace recommends two MySQL tweaks: max attach size and UTF-8

              UTF-8 -- tweak jive-startup file, sql db --  alter database mydb default character set utf8;

              /etc/my.cnf -- no file there by default, using large setup

              500M max attach

              localhost networking only

              thread concurrency 4

              comment out replication (SAV issue)

              DB working

              LDAP setup

              once LDAP working, re-setup and remove group settings -- still only logged-in users

              now using LDAP groups, searching for begins with clearspace -- auto-pulls members of group once cn=Users removed from ldap base.
