This page tracks customizations made to a Drupal-based test instance for Fedora Insight.

Administrator access
You'll need full access to Drupal uid 1 (the site administrator account) to complete some of these steps.

General changes

  1. Install the AuthFAS module. The source is found here.
    cd /etc/drupal6/all/modules/
    git clone git:// authfas
  2. Install the Insight theme. (This doesn't exist yet, but it will. When it does, fill out this step. --pfrields 19:33, 14 August 2010 (UTC))

Site building

  1. In the Modules configuration module, enable the following modules in the Core - Optional section:
    • Aggregator
    • Book
    • Color
    • Comment
    • Content translation
    • Database logging
    • Help
    • Menu
    • Search
    • Taxonomy
    • Trigger
    • Update status
    Enable the following modules in the Other section:
    • AuthFAS

Site configuration

  1. Configure the AuthFAS module with the following settings. The settings below point the AuthFAS module to a FAS instance on publictest4, and requires that anyone logging in be a member of the cla_done FAS group. Furthermore, it sets up email for each new user at
    Location of FAS instance:
    FAS group for authenticated users:  cla_done
    Email domain used for FAS users:
  2. Content management

    User management

    1. In the User settings module, set Public registrations to Only site administrators can create new user accounts.
    2. In the User settings module, disable signature and picture support.
    3. In the FAS instance, create three new groups:
      • cmsadmin
      • cmseditor
      • cmswriter
      In the Drupal instance, create three new roles:
      • administrator
      • editor
      • writer
      Edit each role to hook it to the appropriate FAS group listed above. To grant users more access to help with Drupal, use the FAS system -- not the Drupal instance.
