Since we have migrated to new version of pantoto recently, these instructions may look a little complicated till you try something. We expect that if you carefully follow them, you should not have problems with the installation.
Please help us improve the installation process by keeping us updated with your suggestions or experience, by sending a mail to admin _at_ servelots _dot_ com.
Click Here to fill in a form that allows you to ask for a version of installable PANTOTO Communities software, with dependent libraries. This will also help us in understanding your context to improve the software, and to communicate further on upgrades or bug-fixes.
We have committed the stable Pantoto branch into a publicly accessible subversion repository (subversion is the replacement for CVS - those of you familiar with CVS will already understand how it works). In order to checkout the code you must have a subversion client installed. There is a command line client for geeks, and a number of GUI's for Windows, OS X, and Linux.
If you are using the command line client, use the following to checkout a working copy of the code:
Pantoto Communities is dependent on Mysql 3.23 (*)
Please down load mysql for windows from: http://downloads.mysql.com/archives.php?p=mysql-3.23
Navigate to the "software downloads by platform" and download the approriate version for your platform. For exmaple: the recent 3.23 version for Windows can be downloaded by clicking on: http://downloads.mysql.com/archives/mysql-3.23/mysql-3.23.42-win.zip
JSDK can be downloaded from java.sun.com by visiting: http://www.java.com/ and following Java Software Download. For example, click on link: (**) http://javashoplm.sun.com/ECom/docs/Welcome.jsp?StoreId=22& PartDetailId=j2eesdk-1.4-oth-JPR&SiteId=JSC&TransactionId=noreg
We suggest that Tomcat 4.x be used in case that tomcat is installed only for using Pantoto (***). Tomcat 4 archives can be found at http://archive.apache.org/dist/jakarta/tomcat-4
By navigating to the recent tomcat version there (4.1.31), and then to the bin folder, you may download either the .exe (for windows) or .tar.gz (for unix/linux). For example, windows the windows tomcat 4.1.31 file is: http://archive.apache.org/dist/jakarta/tomcat-4/v4.1.31 /bin/jakarta-tomcat-4.1.31.exe
Notes: (*) newer mysql versions use newer drivers. These newer jdbc drivers have new restrictions on executeQuery calls. Pantoto will be fixed soon to work with newer versions of mysql
(**) You may install the most recent stable version of Java JSDK, which is the default when you follow the instructions. Default installation of Tomcat requires that you have JSDK install and not just Java runtime.
(***) We do not see major problems for Pantoto installation with Tomcat 5, but we have not tested it on versions 5 and above. Also the installation instructions need to be adapted.
