Installing from Binaries

ADEI Project is hosted at SuSe Build System. You will need to install at least adei and one of configuration packages adei-config-*. In order to redirect users from the site entrance to the ADEI, please, install adei-webroot package as well.

    • Create MySQL account with full permissions to manage certain database. Configure this account and the database in config.actual.php in the root of ADEI installation.
    • Provide required setups under setups directory in ADEI tree. Set default setup in config.actual.php.

Running behind port-forwarding firewall

  • The ADEI Apache server should run on the port users specify in the location. Lets consider that remote users are using to access ADEI running at and the gateway does port forwarding. In this case, it is necessary that local web requests bypassing the gateway server, but directed to the port 8000 to be served by Apache server. This is achieved either by running Apache on both ports 80 and 8000 or by performing local port redirection from 8000 to 80.
  • The default configuration also requires that local requests directed to to be redirect back to the ADEI server. If the gateway configuration does not perform port forwarding for requests from local interface, it is necessary to change RewriteRule? in the ADEI services/.htaccess'. The following statement should be written instead of the default one.
    RewriteRule ^([\w\d_]+)(\.php)?$$1&%{QUERY_STRING} [L,P]
