Claim

  • Operating System: – Centos 8
  • A non-root user with sudo privileges.
  • If Strict mode is On, turn it off. On the database server.

getting Started

First, log in to the Centos system with sudo privileges and update the system with the following command:

                      
                        dnf update
                      
                    

Install the LAMP server.

1. Install Apache Web Server

Install Apache Web Server with the following command:

                      
                        sudo dnf -y install httpd
                      
                    

Now check the apache service using the following command

                      
                        systemctl status httpd
                      
                    

If the apache service does not work, start it with the following command and enable it to start at startup:

                      
                        sudo systemctl start httpdsudo systemctl enable httpd
                      
                    

2. Install and configure MariaDB

Install MariaDB server by executing the following command:

                      
                        sudo dnf install mariadb-server
                      
                    

Now start MariaDB service and make it start at startup, then check the status of MariaDB service with the following command:

                      
                        sudo systemctl start mariadbsudo systemctl enable mariadbsudo systemctl status mariadb
                      
                    

Next, you will need to secure the database server. To do this, run the following command in a terminal:-

                      
                        sudo mysql_secure_installation
                      
                    

Here, set a secure password and answer all questions.

                      
                        Set root password? [Y/n] YNew password:Re-enter new password:Remove anonymous users? [Y/n] YDisallow root login remotely? [Y/n] YRemove test database and access to it? [Y/n] YReload privilege tables now? [Y/n] Y
                      
                    

Now your MariaDB installation is secure.

Next, log in to the MariaDB console as follows:

                      
                        sudo mysql -u root -p
                      
                    

Next, you will need to disable strict mode for MariaDB. First, verify in which mode MariaDB is running:

                      
                        MariaDB [(none)]> SHOW VARIABLES LIKE 'sql_mode';
                      
                    

It will display the following output:

                      
                        +---------------+-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+| Variable_name | Value                                                                                     |+---------------+-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+| sql_mode      | STRICT_TRANS_TABLES,ERROR_FOR_DIVISION_BY_ZERO,NO_AUTO_CREATE_USER,NO_ENGINE_SUBSTITUTION |+---------------+-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------+1 row in set (0.001 sec)
                      
                    

Next, you can disable strict mode by running the following command:

                      
                        MariaDB [(none)]> SET GLOBAL sql_mode = 'NO_ENGINE_SUBSTITUTION';
                      
                    

You can then verify that strict mode is disabled by running the following command:

                      
                        MariaDB [(none)]> SELECT @@GLOBAL.sql_mode;
                      
                    

Then restart MariaDB service.

                      
                        sudo systemctl restart mariadb
                      
                    

Next, you will need to log in to the MariaDB console and create a database for Orangescrum. Create the database by running

                      
                        sudo mysql -u root -p
                      
                    

Enter your root password when prompted and run the following command:

                      
                        MariaDB [(none)]> CREATE DATABASE orangescrum;Now create a new user and grant the required permissions to the user for the database.MariaDB [(none)]> CREATE USER 'orangescrum_user'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'YourStrongPassword'; Then grant privileges to the orangescrum database with the following command:-GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON orangescrum.* TO 'orangescrumuser'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'YourStrongPassword' WITH GRANT OPTION;
                      
                    

Now run the following command to immediately apply the changes to the database privileges.

Maria Database [(none)]Flushing privileges;

Next, exit MySQL Shell:

Maria Database [(none)]Exit

3. Install and configure PHP

Next, you will need to install the PHP package, run the following command from Terminal

                      
                        sudo dnf install php php-cli php-mysqlnd php-gd php-ldap php-odbc php-pear php-xml php-xmlrpc php-mbstring php-snmp php-soap php-curl php-opcache php-bcmath php-fpm
                      
                    

After installing all the packages, now you need to make some changes to the php.ini file as requested by OrangeScrum:

First, backup php.ini

                      
                        cp /etc/php.ini /etc/php.ini.bak
                      
                    

Next edit the php.ini file

                      
                        sudo vim /etc/php.ini
                      
                    

Find and change the value from 2M to 200M:

                      
                        post_max_size=200Mupload_max_filesize=200M
                      
                    

Save and close the file. Next, you need to restart the apache web server to apply the changes, run the following command:

                      
                        sudo systemctl restart httpd
                      
                    

Install Orangescrum

To download the open source version of Orangescrum, run the following command:

                      
                        sudo wget https://github.com/Orangescrum/orangescrum/archive/master.zip
                      
                    

Then unzip the downloaded file by running

                      
                        sudo unzip master.zip
                      
                    

This will create the orangescrum-master directory. Now move the orangescrum-master directory to your Apache web directory. You can do this by running:

                      
                        sudo mv orangescrum-master /var/www/html/
                      
                    

Next, give the orangescrum-master directory the correct permissions:

                      
                        sudo chown -R apache:apache /var/www/html/orangescrum-mastersudo chmod -R 777 /var/www/html/orangescrum-master
                      
                    

Configure Apache for Orangescrum First, create a virtual host file for Orangescrum,

                      
                        sudo vim /etc/httpd/conf.d/orangescrum.conf
                      
                    

Then add the following:

                      
                        
            
            
            
            
            
             
             
             
             
             
                          ServerName localhostDocumentRoot /var/www/html/orangescrum-master
                          
             
             
             
             
             
              
              
              
              
              
                            AllowOverride AllOrder allow,denyallow from all
                          
             
             
             
             
             
                        
            
            
            
            
            
                      
                    

Save and exit:

                      
                        :wq!
                      
                    

When done, check the syntax of the configuration. To do this, run the following command:-

                      
                        sudo apachectl configtest
                      
                    

After completing the syntax check, restart the Apache service:

                      
                        sudo systemctl restart httpd
                      
                    

Configure Orangescrum

Now, import OrangeScrum data into the orangescrum database using the following command as shown below:

                      
                        mysql -u orangescrum_user -p orangescrum < /var/www/html/orangescrum-master/database.sql
                      
                    

Now you need to edit the database.php file to update the database connection details:

                      
                        vim /var/www/html/orangescrum-master/app/Config/database.php
                      
                    

Change the file as follows:

                      
                        class DATABASE_CONFIG {    public $default = array(            'datasource' => 'Database/Mysql',            'persistent' => false,            'host' => 'localhost',            'login' => 'orangescrum_user',            'password' => 'Your_StrongPassword',            'database' => 'orangescrum',            'prefix' => '',            'encoding' => 'utf8',    );}
                      
                    

Then save and exit the file. Here, you must enter the database use name, password, and database name that you chose when you created the database and MySQL user. Next, you need to edit the constants.php file for SMTP:

                      
                        sudo vim /var/www/html/orangescrum-master/app/Config/constants.php
                      
                    
                      
                        Next Find and Change the following lines as per your need://Gmail SMTPdefine("SMTP_HOST", "ssl://smtp.gmail.com");define("SMTP_PORT", "465");define("SMTP_UNAME", "[email protected]");define("SMTP_PWORD", "******");define("IS_SMTP", "0");define('FROM_EMAIL_NOTIFY', '[email protected]'); //(REQUIRED)define('SUPPORT_EMAIL', '[email protected]'); //(REQUIRED) From Email
                      
                    

Now restart the Apache service.

                      
                        sudo systemctl restart httpd
                      
                    

Next, modify the firewall rules to allow web access:

                      
                        sudo firewall-cmd --zone=public --permanent --add-service=httpsudo firewall-cmd --reload
                      
                    

You can temporarily disable SELinux using the command given below.

                      
                        
                          setenforce 0
