Installing SourceForge Enterprise Edition VMWare-based on Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy

What about managing your team with the first-class distributed software development tool? SourceForge Enterprise Edition allows project managers to better follow his/her teams of projects in a very convenient way. This post is just a hint on how to install SourceForge Enterprise Edition vmware player instance on Ubuntu 7.10…

First of all, I’m assuming that you have Ubuntu 7.10 installed as your own desktop, remote server, etc… For remote servers, I recommend one using NXServers and in order to access your server just use the NoMachine clients.

At this start point, you can download SourceForge Enterprise Edition 15 users from http://downloads.open.collab.net/sfee15.html. I had downloaded the file SourceForge-4_4-DL6.zip and unzipped its contents to my home directory by running

unzip SourceForge-4_4-DL6.zip

With the access to the GUI, you can proceed with the installation of the VMPlayer… Just follow the instructions on how to do so at Ubuntu Forum. It’s mandatory the installation of the build-essential package!!! If the package update bugs you complaining about the Ubuntu CD from where you installed Ubuntu and you don’t have access to one, just comment the first line at the /etc/apt/source.list file about the cdrom access… Finally, just complete the installation answering to all the questions by default, HAVING ONLY THE BRIDGED configuration. If asked, verify which interface has your IP address by running “ifconfig” and use it on the configuration (mine was eth1)… Once configured, it will display a welcome message from the VMware team…

With VMWare up and running, go to Applications -> System Tools -> VMware Player. Then, click on “Open an existing Virtual Machine” and go to the directory where you unzipped the download of SourceForge-4_4-DL6.zip and select the only file for the SourceForge virtual machine… the VA software centOS server will begin to be loaded… We are almost there… đŸ˜€

A lot of users (including me) are just reading the documentation available online, but for this installation the package includes the file “install_guide.pdf” with information about pre-installation instructions. I just needed to see which username and password allows me to make the first login to the SFEE server. When prompted, just use the following:

username: root
password: sourceforge

At this step, since it’s the first time you’re running the installation, you will need to change the root password. Follow the instructions and go to the IP/Network configuration. I chose to have a static ip address in order to be able to have other http servers on my network… After following the installation procedures, the SFEE server will be restarted and the configuration script will show the ip address and host name on how to access your SFEE installation from your local network. After that, you are all set and you just need to hit the virtual host address on the browser and follow the welcome instructions… The following is the username and password for the admin account

username: admin
password: admin

For management of projects using SFEE, a good starting point is the following documentation:
