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

Any ideas on how I do this.

    Accepted Solution

    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 ->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/

    7.) Move the JDK-directory:

    mv jdk1.5.0_12 /opt/

    8.) Change to that directory:

    cd /opt/

    9.) Create a symbolic link for the JDK:

    ln -s jdk1.5.0_12 java

    10.) Test the JDK: /opt/ -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
