GLPI Installation Guide

1) Mysql Configuration:

Login to mysql server through shell (or webmin). Create database glpidb
Example : db name – glpidb, username – glpiuser , password – glpipwd
In SSH run the following comments to create database.

#mysql -u root -p ( enter the mysql root password)
mysql> create database glpidb;
mysql> grant all privileges on glpidb.* to glpiuser@localhost identified by ‘glpipwd’;
mysql> exit

If you are ruining Apache and mysql in different servers, you have to use glpiuser@apacheserverip

2)GLPI installation

Login to Apache server host through shell
Download the latest glpi archive
Un tar glpi-0.72.4.tar.gz in the web root directory

#tar -xvzf glpi-0.72.4.tar.gz -C /var/www/html/
#cd /var/www/html
#chown -R apache glpi

Add dns entry for your support website ( support.example.com to 192.168.1.2 (replace with your ip) )
If you don’t have dns server, you can use the ip directly

edit /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and add the following configurations

< VirtualHost 192.168.1.2:* >
DocumentRoot /var/www/html/glpi
ServerName support.example.com
RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} ^(TRACE|TRACK)
RewriteRule .* – [F]
    < Directory “/var/www/html/glpi”  >
        DirectoryIndex index.php
    < /Directory >
Options ExecCGI
< /VirtualHost >

Or add alias for this glpi directory
Restart apache server

#service httpd restart

Browse your support url http://support.example.com  or ip (from remote computer)
for directory access use http://192.168.1.2/glpi ( from local host http://localhost/glpi)
