Installation Instructions
This document was prepared in order to help you discover (or
test) Koha (Integrated Library System).
The installation of Linux system described below is a basic,
it is not designed for a production server (e.g., security,
load balancing .. are not described).
This document describes the different stages of installing
the software to version 3.00 koha beta on a Fedora 7 Linux.
Your mileage may vary with different RedHat distributions.
System: Linux Fedora 7 (May 2007) Linux Redhat
The Linux distribution Fedora 7 is downloadable from the
Fedora website:
The Fedora website also offers additional content such as
documentation, FAQ, etc.
Using the entire disk (removal of existing partitions and
therefore permanent loss of data stored on the disk) is
the easiest method; This is not the best practice for a
production system, but is useful for testing purposes.
Check that the computer is able to boot from a CD or DVD,
perhaps by changing the boot order in the bios.
Place the CD or DVD in the drive and restart the machine.
Settings when installing Linux (French specific, may not apply)
Language: French (French)
Choice of keyboard: French (Latin9) recognized by default.
Removal of existing Linux partitions
Host Name:
Time zone: Europe/Paris. Click on the map or select from the
list and check system clock to UTC.
Informing the root password, which is the administrator account.
The installation of the system will automatically start and may
take between 15 to 30 minutes to complete.
Click Restart.
Enter the default options.
For Firewall, check www http server (configuration of the firewall).
Create a user koha with the password kohakoha (eg)
The koha is therefore created and the group koha which this user belongs.
Setting the homepage
Enter root, then the password root.
With Fedora, GNOME is the default environment.
To use KDE default (as we at Lyon 2 have done), close the session,
having recovered the KDE packages on Add/Remove software. For the
french interface, go through the package manager and seek, then
install kde-french.
On the login prompt, go to Options è Select Session and choose KDE. A
the next connection, the system will ask if you want to use KDE or
GNOME by default. Also on the login prompt, go to Languages and
choose the French.
The installation of Linux system is complete.
1.2 Verification of system settings
You must be logged in as administrator of the system (root).
-- Make sure the environment is KDE. The taskbar is at the
bottom of the screen and left of this bar is the menu K.
-- Check that the system is in french and click on K.
-- Create a few shortcuts in making a drag and drop the following
items in the taskbar:
Menu K è è Internet Firefox Web Browser
Menu K è è Terminal System
Menu K è è Services System Management Services
-- Check that the koha and the group koha are created:
Menu K è è System Users and Groups
-- Check that web servers Apache and MySQL are installed.
Menu K è è Services System Management Services
The lines httpd (demon Apache) and mysqld (demon MySQL) must be
included in the line of services. You must configure these two
services so that they are lançés automatically at boot. Check th
e box to the left of the service, click the Start button at the
top of the list, if the two services start without any problem,
validate the change of manager services by clicking on Save or
File menu è save changes
Close the services manager.
If one or both services are absent, it is necessary to install Apache
and/or MySQL. To do so, go in the Package Manager, choose and
select Apache server and/or MySQL. In the case of MySQL, we must
not forget MySQL-devel (available in packages optional). Finally,
start the installation.
1.3 Installation of additional software
The software installation Koha requires adding additional programs
to your system linux based on a standard installation. This list may
be slightly different depending on the version and support (Live
CD or DVD).
List of software to add
Libicu (see below)
git- [is not necessary for the installation of koha, but
useful if one participates in the development of koha.]
To add software Linux Fedora, you have two tools
A graphical tool
Menu K è è System Add/Remove software
Click on the Search tab
Enter the name of the software in the zone entry and click the
Search button;
The software that match your search are listed.
Make sure the check box is checked if the tick and click Apply to
add software to your system.
A tool mode Terminal YUM
The YUM documentation is available on the Fedora site
Open a terminal window (K Menu è è Terminal System)
Examples of using YUM:
Is the web browser Firefox installed?
Type the command: yum list firefox
This command will launch the software yum, and asked it to list
the information on the Firefox.
Yum visit the various deposits of software for Fedora (fedora,
updates, etc.). And said that the firefox software is installed
on this machine (version and there is a
downloadable version newer ( version

NB: The tool rpm (Redhat Package Manager) allows facilities
management software under the Linux distribution Fedora.
Special case: the library libicu under Fedora 8
Under Fedora 8:
The library libicu, is standard in the distribution Fedora.
Version 3.8 of this library installed with Fedora 8 is too recent
and poses a problem when installing software and ZEBRA YAZ, the
company Indexdata who compiled these two programs with version 3.6
of the library, it is therefore necessary to remove the libicu 3.8
library and replace it with version 3.6.
Uninstall the library libicu - 3.8-1.fc8
With the web browser, download the library libicu-3.6-18.fc7.i386.rpm
(old version, choose the version Fedora 7 for i386) here:
Download the package rpm
Open a terminal window, a menu K> System> Terminal
find the file libicu-3.6-18.fc7.i386.rpm
Desktop CD
decompress the archive with the command: rpm-ivh libicu-3.6-18.fc7.i386.rpm
Setting 1.4 for the use of unicode
UNICODE must be set up correctly before installing Koha.
1.4.1 The Linux system is it configured to use UNICODE?
For more information:
To check, open a terminal window and type the locale.
You must obtain:
LANG = en_GB.UTF-8
1.4.2 The web server Apache 2 is it configured to use UNICODE?
To verify, using a text editor, open the httpd.conf file located
in /etc/httpd/conf and look if it contains the directive:
AddDefaultCharset UTF-8
1.4.3 The MySQL server is it configured to use UNICODE?
NB: mysqld service must be started.
In a Terminal window, type the command mysql, then an SQL
to display variables content server configuration.
Text of query:
show where variable_name variables like 'char%';
mysql> show where variable_name variables like 'char%';
| Variable_name | Value |
| Character_set_client | latin1 |
| Character_set_connection | latin1 |
| Character_set_database | latin1 |
| Character_set_filesystem | Binary |
| Character_set_results | latin1 |
| Character_set_server | latin1 |
| Character_set_system | utf8 |
| Character_sets_dir | /usr/share/mysql/charsets/ |
8 rows in set (0.00 sec)
Some variables are not properly configured (latin1), so we have to
change the configuration file server MySQL.
Leaving the mysql client by the command quit.
Using a text editor, open the file my.cnf located in the directory /
etc and add these 3 lines in the section [mysqld]:
default-character-set = utf8
character-set-server = utf8
To ensure that this change is taken into account, restart the server
Mysql using the following command in a terminal window:
mysqld restart service
Check that changing the parameters was taken into account by reconnecting
the MySQL server with the command mysql, then typing the query:
show where variable_name variables like 'char%';
The variables contain well utf8 /

Some information for the use of MySQL here: HYPERLINK ""
For libraries that must manage several tens of thousands of bib records
it is recommended that you install the server indexing ZEBRA. Otherwise
(far fewer records to manage), it is not necessary to install ZEBRA.
The software installation ZEBRA requires prior installation of software
modules YAZ client and server Z3950.
The installation is as administrator (root).
NB: the creation of files yaz and zebra is only necessary if you use
the graphical
Website for downloads: HYPERLINK ""
2.1 Installation of the software YAZ
Creating a file needed for the installation of Yaz
Create files redhat in the directory /usr/src
SOURCES Create a folder in the directory /usr/src/redhat
NB: redhat lowercase and uppercase SOURCES.
Installing Yaz by the command:
rpm-ivh *- 3.0.24 *.*. rpm
Check the final published version and replace -3.0.24 by the number
of the current version.
Check the installation by the command:
rpm-q libyaz3 libyaz3-devel yaz yaz-debuginfo yaz-icu-yaz illclient yaz-3.0.24-1.src
2.2 Installation of the software ZEBRA
To install packages from the version 2.0.26-1:
rpm-ivh *- 2.0.26-1 .*. rpm
Check dernère published version and replace -2.0.26-1 by the
number of the current version.
Check the installation by the command:
rpm-q libidzebra-2.0-2.0-libidzebra modules idzebra-2.0 idzebra-2.0-debuginfo libidzebra-2.0-devel idzebra-2.0
Important Reminder:
Make sure, BEFORE you install koha, that the system Linux, the MySQL
server and the Apache server are configured to use the Unicode
format (cf. 1.4).
Download koha here: HYPERLINK ""
3.1 Decompression of the archive koha 3.0
Save the file in the directory /usr/share.
Opening a window Terminal, and placing himself in the directory /usr/share by the command:
cd /usr/share
verify the presence of compressed file koha by the command:
ls-l * Koha
Unzip the file with the command tar:
tar-xvf koha-3.00.00-beta2.tar.gz
You get a folder koha-3.00.00-beta2, which contains folders and files needed for the installation of software koha.
NB: the installation procedure is described in the text files "INSTALL"
and "INSTALL debian", the second is more complete.
3.2 Protect access to the database server MySQL
Update the password root server MySQL (by default, unprotected access to databases)
In a Terminal window:
sudo password mysqladmin Koha
3.3 Creation of a database MySQL test
The basic test is immediately under Fedora. We must remove the existing basic
test and then create a basic test MySQL provisional, which will be deleted
after installing koha.
mysql-u root-p
Enter password: kohakoha (eg)
mysql> drop test database;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.06 sec)
mysql> create database test;
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.00 sec)
mysql> grant all on test .* to 'test' @ 'localhost' identified by 'test';
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)
MySQL> flush privileges;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)
MySQL> quit
3.4 Creation of the MySQL database koha
Creation of the database, a user kohaadmin with password and defining its
In a Terminal window:
mysql-u root-p
Enter password: type kohakoha (eg a password for root)
Create Database Koha;
grant all on koha .* to 'kohaadmin' @ 'localhost' identified by 'kohakoha';
flush privileges;
3.5 Configuration CPAN
The koha software is written in Perl. You have access to deposits modules
written in perl (CPAN) to download some libraries on your system. The Perl
language of origin is installed on most Linux distributions, but some modules
must be installed.
During the first use of cpan, you must configure.
Open a terminal window and type the command cpan
During the installation of modules, validate the additions of modules when
necessary. Indicate the continent and the country. Select 3 or 4 CPAN deposits
in the proposed list.
It is possible to force the installation of a module. In this case, in a
Terminal window, type:
then force install NomDuModule
then quit
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/CPAN/ initialized.
CPAN is the world-wide archive of perl resources. It consists of about
100 sites that all replicate the same contents all around the globe.
Many countries have at least one CPAN site already. The resources
found on CPAN are easily accessible with the module. If you
want to use, you have to configure it properly.
If you do not want to enter a dialog now, you can answer 'no' to this
question and I'll try to autoconfigure. (Note: you can revisit this
dialog anytime later by typing 'o conf init' at the cpan prompt.)
Are you ready for manual configuration? [yes]
The following questions are intended to help you with the
configuration. The CPAN module needs a directory of its own to cache
important index files and maybe keep a temporary mirror of CPAN files.
This may be a site-wide directory or a personal directory.
First of all, I'd like to create this directory. Where?
CPAN build and cache directory? [/ root/.cpan]
If you want, I can keep the source files after a build in the cpan
Home directory. If you choose so then future builds will take the
files from there. If you do not want to keep them, answer to the 0
Next question.
How big should the disk cache be for keeping the build directories
with all the intermediate files?
Cache size for build directory (in MB)? [10]
By default, each time the CPAN module is started, scanning cache
is performed to keep the cache size in sync. To prevent from this,
disable the cache scanning with 'never'.
Perform cache scanning (atstart or never)? [atstart]
To considerably speed up the initial CPAN shell startup, it is
Storable possible to use to create a cache of metadata. If Storable
is not available, the normal index mechanism will be used.
Cache metadata (yes/no)? [yes]
The next option deals with the charset your terminal supports. In
general CPAN is English speaking territory, thus the charset does not
matter much, but some of the aliens out there who upload their
software to CPAN bear names that are outside the ASCII range. If your
terminal supports UTF-8, you say no to the next question, if it
supports ISO-8859-1 (also known as LATIN1) then you say yes, and if it
neither supports nor, your answer does not matter, you will not be
able to read the names of some authors anyway. If you answer no, names
will be output in UTF-8.
Your terminal expects iso-8859-1 (yes/no) [yes]
If you have one of the readline packages (Term: ReadLine: Perl,
Term: ReadLine: Gnu, possibly others) installed, the interactive CPAN
Shell will have history support. The next two questions deal with the
filename of the history file and with its size. If you do not want to
set this variable, please hit SPACE RETURN to the following question.
File to save your history? [/root/.cpan/histfile]
Number of lines to save? [100]
The CPAN module can detect when a module that which you are trying to
build depends on prerequisites. If this happens, it can build the
prerequisites for you automatically ('follow'), ask you for
confirmation ('ask'), or just ignore them ('ignore'). Please set your
policy to one of the three values.
Policy on building prerequisites (follow, ask or ignore)? [ask]
The CPAN module will need a few external programs to work properly.
Please correct me, if I guess the wrong path for a program. Do not
panic if you do not have some of them, just press ENTER for those. To
disable the use of a download program, you can type a space followed
Where is your gzip program? [/bin/gzip]
Where is your tar program? [/bin/tar]
Where is your unzip program? [/usr/bin/unzip]
Where is your make program? [/usr/bin/make]
Where is your links program? [/usr/bin/links]
Where is your wget program? [/usr/bin/wget]
Where is your ncftpget program? [/usr/bin/ncftpget]
Where is your ftp program? [/usr/bin/ftp]
Where is your gpg program? [/usr/bin/gpg]
What is your favorite pager program? [/usr/bin/less]
What is your favorite shell? [/bin/bash]
Every Makefile.PL is run by perl in a separate process. Likewise we
run 'make' and 'make install' in processes. If you have any
parameters (eg PREFIX, LIB, UNINST or the like) you want to pass

Sometimes you may wish to leave the processes run by CPAN alone
without caring about them. As sometimes contains the Makefile.PL
question you're expected to answer, you can set a timer that will
kill a 'perl Makefile.PL' process after the specified time in seconds.
If you set this value to 0, these processes will wait forever. This is
the default and recommended setting.
Timeout for inactivity during Makefile.PL? [0]
If you're accessing the net via proxies, you can specify them in the
CPAN configuration or via environment variables. The variable in
the $ CPAN:: Config takes precedence.

************************************************** ****************
By default, Koha can be installed in one of three ways:
Standard: Install files in conformance with the Filesystem
Hierarchy Standard (FHS). This is the default mode
and should be used when installing a production
Koha system. On Unix systems, root access is
needed to complete a standard installation.
single: Install files under a single directory. This option
is useful for installing Koha without root access, eg,
on a web host that allows CGI scripts and MySQL databases
but requires the user to keep all files under the user's
HOME directory.
dev: Create a set of symbolic links and configuration files to
Koha allow to run directly from the source distribution.
This mode is useful for developers who want to run
Koha from a git clone.
Installation mode (dev, single, standard) [standard]
Please specify the directory under which most Koha files
will be installed.
Note that if you are planning in installing more than
one instance of Koha, you may want to modify the last
component of the directory path, which will be used
as the package name in the FHS layout.
Base installation directory [/usr/share/koha]
Since you are using the 'standard' install
mode, you should run 'make install' as root.
However, it is recommended that a non-root
user (on Unix and Linux platforms) have
ownership of Koha's files, including the
Zebra indexes if applicable.
Please specify a user account. This
user account does not need to exist
right now, but it needs to exist
before you run 'make install'. Please
note that for security reasons, this
user should not be the same as the user
account Apache runs under.
User account [koha]
Please specify the group that should own
Koha's files. As above, this group need
not exist right now, but should be created
before you run 'make install'.
Group [koha]
Please specify which database engine you will use
to store data in Koha. The choices are MySQL and
PostgreSQL; please note that at the moment
PostgreSQL support is highly experimental.
DBMS to use (Pg, mysql) [mysql]
Please specify the name or address of your
database server. Note that the database
does not have to exist at this point, it
can be created after running 'make install'
and before you try using Koha for the first time.
Database server [localhost]
Please specify the port used to connect to the
DMBS [3306]
Please specify the name of the database to be
used by Koha [koha]
Please specify the user that owns the database to be
used by Koha [kohaadmin]
Please specify the password of the user that owns the
database to be used by Koha [katikoan] kohakoha
Koha can use the Zebra search engine for high-performance
searching of bibliographic and authority records. If you
have installed the Zebra software and would like to use it,
please answer 'yes' to the following question. Otherwise,
Koha will default to using its internal search engine.
Please note that if you choose *NOT* to install Zebra,
koha-conf.xml will still contain some references to Zebra
settings. Those references will be ignored by Koha.
Install the Zebra configuration files? (no, yes) [yes]
Since you've chosen to use Zebra with Koha,
you must specify the primary MARC format of the
records to be indexed by Zebra.
Koha provides Zebra configuration files for MARC 21
MARC format for Zebra indexing (marc21, unimarc) [marc21] unimarc
Koha supplies Zebra configuration files tuned for
searching either English (en) or French (fr) MARC
Primary language for Zebra indexing (en, fr) [en] fr
Please specify Zebra database user [kohauser]
Please specify the Zebra database password [zebrastripes]
Since you've chosen to use Zebra, you can enable the SRU/
Z39.50 Server if you so choose, but you must specify a
few configuration options for it.
Please note that if you choose *NOT* to configure SRU,
koha-conf.xml will still contain some references to SRU
settings. Those references will be ignored by Koha.
Install the SRU configuration files? (no, yes) [yes]
SRU Database host? [localhost]
SRU port for bibliographic data? [9998]
SRU port for authority data? [9999]
Koha will be installed with the following configuration parameters:

perl Makefile.PL again. To override one of the target
directories, you can do so on the command line like this:
perl Makefile.PL PERL_MODULE_DIR=/usr/share/perl/5.8
You can also set different default values for parameters
or override directory locations by using environment variables.
For example:
export DB_USER=my_koha
perl Makefile.PL
DB_USER=my_koha DOC_DIR=/usr/local/info perl Makefile.PL
Checking if your kit is complete...
Looks good
Writing Makefile for koha
************************************************** ****************
Taper la commande make
Taper la commande make test (ne pas tenir compte des erreurs listées)
Taper la commande make install
.1 Saving environment variables
As indicated at the end of the installation (see screen shot), we must add two environment variables:
Entering the two lines below a window in Terminal:
export KOHA_CONF=/etc/koha/koha-conf.xml
export PERL5LIB=/usr/share/koha/lib
Seizures of this event, both variables are recorded on a temporary basis. If these variables are definitely enr
egistrées we must add these two lines in the file. bash_profile or. bashrc users root and koha.
4.2 Creation of the database
The base is not created. It is a bug, we must launch a script to recreate it. In a Terminal window, type:
mysql -user=kohaadmin -password=kohakoha koha </usr/share/koha-3.00.00-alpha/installer/data/mysql/kohastructure.sql;
mysql è launches client mysql
-- user = kohaadmin è behalf of the user base
-- password = kohakoha è password for this user
koha è the name of the database
<È means setting the result of a script (here, the base koha)
/usr/share/koha-3.00.00-alpha/installer/data/mysql/kohastructure.sql è address sql script to execute
Do not forget the sign at the end of the investigation.
To check if the base is well rebuilt: mysql-u-p kohaadmin
Enter password: kohakoha

4.3 Changing the configuration of the Apache server
Create a link koha in the directory /etc/httpd/conf.d/ pointing to the configuration file of koha for apache.
Open /etc/koha/koha-httpd.conf and paste the contents of this file at the end of /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
Editing httpd.conf located in the directory /etc/httpd/conf, so the Apache web server is reachable on port 8
0 (standard) and also on port 8080.
Find string Listen 80 and add a new line below with the string Listen 8080
Restarting the service httpd. On a Terminal window, type service httpd restart.
Lancer Zebra Server
zebrasrv east /usr/bin
with the name zebrasrv-2.0
go to the directory /usr/bin
cd /usr/bin
koha become user by typing the command su:
su Koha
zebra start the server by the command:
./zebrasrv-2.0-f /etc/koha/koha-conf.xml
Starting the daemon Zebraqueue is in /usr/share/koha/bin
go in /usr/share/koha/bin
cd /usr/share/koha/bin
and launch the script
. /
4.4 loading data for tests
This step helps to have some input in Koha for testing purposes (table cataloguing default, etc.).
Disable temporarily SElinux
SE-LINUX blocking access to KOHA.
Menu K Hotel è è SElinux
Then turn off Selinux and relaunch the service iptables
Unlocking ports
It must grant access to ports 3306, 9998 and 9999
Menu K Hotel è è Firewall and SElinux
Other ports and click Add button.
When the 3 ports are added, click Apply, then click the button.
Using the Web installer
We must move the fr located in /usr/share/koha/intranet/cgi-bin/data/mysql en-US (installer points to the directory
en-ing and not en).
Connect to Koha: HYPERLINK "http://localhost:8080/" http://localhost:8080 and use the Web installer french (en-US).
-- Validate Step 1 (dependencies);
-- Step 2 (settings of the database on two screens);
-- A Phase 3, click on Install the basic settings (screen 1), select the declination Marc (Unimarc_complet in our
Where Unimarc_lecture_pub; screen 2), select default settings and then click on Import (only settings obligat
oires are checked by default; screen 3);
-- The screen 4 summarizes what has been imported, while low demand to opt for a configuration Zebra (our choice) or NoZebra;
-- Finally, the screen 5 indicates the end of the installation; then you just have to click Finish.
