Installing the Ministra TV Platform (Stalker Middleware) in Ubuntu

On the test, I will install the Ministra TV Platform (formerly called Stalker Middleware) in Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS.

First we will make a request for download by visiting the official website www.infomir.eu.
Unpack the downloaded archive:

sudo apt-get install unzip
unzip stalker_portal-5.3.0.zip

Copy the files to the web server directory:

cp -a infomirgroup-stalker_portal* /var/www/stalker_portal

Install the necessary components:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y upgrade
sudo apt-get install -y -u apache2 nginx memcached mysql-server php5 php5-mysql php-pear nodejs upstart 
sudo pear channel-discover pear.phing.info
sudo pear install phing/phing

Create MySQL database and user:

mysql -u root -p
CREATE DATABASE stalker_db;
CREATE USER 'stalker'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'PASSWORD';
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON stalker_db.* TO stalker@localhost IDENTIFIED BY '1' WITH GRANT OPTION;
FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
exit

If you need to change the settings in the /var/www/stalker_portal/server/config.ini configuration file, create a custom.ini file and add the parameters that you need to change:

sudo nano /var/www/stalker_portal/server/custom.ini

For example, the password for the database:

[database]
mysql_pass = PASSWORD

Perform phing (this process can take a long time, also in my case the MySQL user root password was requested):

cd /var/www/stalker_portal/deploy/
sudo phing

In /etc/mysql/my.cnf we will specify:

max_allowed_packet = 32M

We activate short PHP tags in /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini:

short_open_tag = On

The libapache2-mod-php5filter package should not be installed on the system:

sudo apt-get purge libapache2-mod-php5filter

Let’s make a backup copy of the standard apache2 web server configuration and clear the file:

sudo cp /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default_backup.conf
sudo nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf

Add to it:

    <VirtualHost *:88>
            ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
            DocumentRoot /var/www
            <Directory /var/www/stalker_portal/>
                    Options -Indexes -MultiViews
                    AllowOverride ALL
                    Require all granted
            </Directory>
            ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
            CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined
    </VirtualHost>

Let’s change the port to Listen 88:

sudo nano /etc/apache2/ports.conf

Restart apache2 to apply the changes:

sudo service apache2 restart

Let’s make a backup copy of the standard nginx web server configuration and clear the file:

sudo mv /etc/nginx/sites-available/default /etc/nginx/sites-available/default_backup
sudo nano /etc/nginx/sites-available/default

Add to it:

    server {
        listen       80;
        server_name  localhost;
     
        location / {
            proxy_pass http://127.0.0.1:88/;
            proxy_set_header Host $host:$server_port;
            proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
        }
     
        location ~* \.(htm|html|jpeg|jpg|gif|png|css|js)$ {
            root /var/www;
            expires 30d;
        }
    }

Restart nginx to apply the changes:

sudo service nginx restart

Now you can open the browser interface administrator interface http://SERVER/stalker_portal, login – admin, password – 1.
And the client – http://SERVER/stalker_portal/c/
