Im trying to install openemm from www.openemm.org on my plesk server which is running on centos.

Any ideas on how I do this.

Veeam is happy to provide a free NFR license (1 year, 2 sockets) to all certified IT Pros. The license allows for the non-production use of Veeam Availability Suite v9.5 in your home lab, without any feature limitations. It works for both VMware and Hyper-V environments

that link which i gave was very very esay (copy past) to use kind of stuf.  ok do the following i took the same from the guide.

copy past the following one after another.

1. Yum update
2. yum install mysql-server sendmail-cf MySQL-python
3. groupadd openemm
4. useradd -m -g openemm -d /home/openemm -c "OpenEMM 5.x.y" openemm

and install jdk

1. download  the latest Sun JDK 5 from

http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index_jdk5.jsp ->JDK 5.0 Update 12

preferable the 'jdk-1_5_0_12-linux-i586.bin' package (or newer).

2.) Copy the file to /tmp directory:

cp jdk-1_5_0_12-linux-i586.bin /tmp

3.) CD to the '/tmp' directory:

cd /tmp

4.) Give the file an execution permission:

chmod u+x jdk-1_5_0_12-linux-i586.bin

5.) Execute the file


follow the onscreen instructions and confirm the license agreement.

6.) Create a directory:

mkdir -p /opt/openemm.org/software

7.) Move the JDK-directory:

mv jdk1.5.0_12 /opt/openemm.org/software

8.) Change to that directory:

cd /opt/openemm.org/software

9.) Create a symbolic link for the JDK:

ln -s jdk1.5.0_12 java

10.) Test the JDK: /opt/openemm.org/software/java/bin/java -version

You should get an output like this:

---console output---

java version "1.5.0_12"

Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_12)

Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_11-2, mixed mode, sharing)

---console output---

3. Firewall

If you have no firewall enabled then leave it or if you dont want firewall  run the following

1. Iptalbes -F

2. service iptables save
3. service iptables restart
if you need the firewall

open   /etc/sysconfig/iptables add these lines.

-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 25 -j ACCEPT

-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT

-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 8080 -j ACCEPT

-A RH-Firewall-1-INPUT -m state --state NEW -m tcp -p tcp --dport 8081 -j ACCEPT


and follow the remaining
