Hi,

Has anyone made rpm for wre on CentOS 6 64bit? If yes, please share.

I need to migrate my sites from the current server to a CentOS 6 64bit. I was hoping for WebGUI 8 to come before migrating but I understand that WebGUI 8 may take longer to be released.

Anyway the new server that I will be migrating to got nginx running so I getting ready for WebGUI 8.

I was thinking of installing WRE than make nignx the proxy instead of apache.

I am really excited about WebGUI 8. The best part is that it is not using mod_perl.

Enough talk by me.

Once again, if anybody got the rpm for WRE centOS 6 64bit, please share.

Hi PV,

We worked with El Motaheda to get the WRE source code compiled for CentOS 5.8. I'd highly recommend contacting Ehab if you'd like to get assistance. His company is listed in the service providers page.

I'm happy to share our compiled WRE. It's probably 2 years old now, and I'm not sure that it will work for 6.

Thank you very much for sharing. I will check with El Motaheda for rpm for CentOS 6 64bit.

Got in touch with El Motaheda but he does not have rpm for CentOS 6 64bit.

I think he is very busy too.

I am going to try and compile it myself. Unfortunately the source is not at sourceforge.

Is there any other place I can get the source for the latest wre?

The WRE sources are at https://github.com/plainblack/wrebuild.  You should be able to 'git clone https://github.com/plainblack/wrebuild.git' to get a copy.  If it doesn't build cleanly on your system, you're welcome to post the output here and I'll make suggestions if I'm able to.

As for WebGUI8, that's a bit of a chicken-and-egg problem.  For a long time, people were waiting for a beta.  Then a beta came out and people are waiting for a production version.  Well, if no one tests the beta version, it's going to stay beta.  I wouldn't recommend moving your production site to it, but that doesn't mean that a spare machine or VM couldn't be used to test the beta.

The source install process (in place of the WRE) is always an option, too.  You don't need to build mod_perl, MySQL, perl, and so forth from scratch to do the source install.  You can use the system packages.  That's not as easy as the WRE install, but it's certainly do-able.

Good luck!

Thank you very much for the link and help.

I am at fault here too. I will do more on VM. Maybe migrate a current site to it and see how it works out. Just as a test.

I would be very happy when WebGUI stop using mod_perl and just go with nginx. Then I would be more confident to move to source install. For now since modperl is still needed, I will use WRE.

Hi Scott,

This is the first I've heard of a beta for WebGUI 8. It's not even mentioned on the official WG8 page --> http://www.webgui.org/8

Please tell us where we can download a beta with install instructions for configuring since it's a very different beast from WG7.

Was just looking through the build script and it seems that there is no apache and no mod_perl. Is this correct for the stable version 7.10? 

If that is correct, then it is great news.

Please advice.

You might look into "plebgui", a version of WebGUI modified to use plack instead of mod_perl.  There was a post made recently in this forum about it being updated to track the latest version of 7.x.  patspam did this work originally, and it was also the basis of plack support in 8.x.  I'd be interested to hear about your experiences with that.

Neither the 8.x or 7.x WRE would be exactly suitable for that, but, as you said, not needing mod_perl would make the WRE less desirable.

I'm no fan of mod_perl myself.

Ah, that's right.  perlDreamer has been doing work in there to rework it for wG8.

After the 'git clone', do 'git checkout wre7' to check out the wG7 specific branch.  Mention of Apache and such should re-appear after that.
