This page describes the process to build the Publican-driven Fedora docs site, referencing the Publican 4.0 User Guide.

The site is based on an EL6 machine, pulling packages from the el6-docs repo in Koji.

0. Set up an el6 machine

For this test, I set up a fresh el6.5 machine.

1. Connect repos

1.1 optional subchannel

Activate the optional subchannel in RHN. Instructions here

1.2 EPEL

$ sudo yum localinstall

1.3 el6-docs

Create /etc/yum.repos.d/el6-docs.repo with the following contents:

name=Packages for the Fedora docs site

2. Install Publican

$ sudo yum install publican publican-common-web

PUG 7.2.1, step 3 NB: package names out-of-date

3. Configure the website

$ sudo vi /etc/publican-website.cfg

For this test, I set:

# where will the content be published to?
toc_path: /var/www/html/docs
# Where are the templates to build the TOCs?
tmpl_path: /usr/share/publican/templates
# Where is the database?
db_file: /usr/share/publican/default.db
title: "Fedora Documentation"
search: <p/>
dump: 1
dump_file: /var/www/html/docs/DUMP.xml
web_style: 2

The publican-website.cfg file used in production should have the host: parameter set too.

PUG 7.2.1, step 4 NB: web_style parameter undocumented
