Revision 17 (Jackson, Mike, 06 March 2012 14:26) → Revision 18/29 (Jackson, Mike, 06 March 2012 14:30)

h1. Deploying the MAUS web-front end Django under Apache 

 {{>toc}} 

 h2. Deploy Python 2.7 and related packages 

 If you do *not* have and do *not* want to download the MAUS software (which comes with Python 2.7 and Python easy_install) then keep reading.  

 Otherwise, *go down to* the next section, "Deploy ImageMagick". on deploying ImageMagick. 

 For full information on deploying Python 2.7, see http://www.python.org/getit/releases/2.7/ 

 To install Python 2.7.2 via building from it's source code: 

 * Log in as super-user e.g. using @sudo su -@ or @su@. 
 * Get Python 2.7 source distribution and unpack it, 
 <pre> 
 $ wget http://www.python.org/ftp/python/2.7.2/Python-2.7.2.tgz 
 $ mv Python-2.7.2.tgz Python-2.7.2.tar.gz 
 $ gunzip Python-2.7.2.tar.gz  
 $ tar -xf Python-2.7.2.tar  
 $ cd Python-2.7.2 
 </pre> 
 * Configure, 
 <pre> 
 $ ./configure 
 </pre> 
 * Build, 
 <pre> 
 $ make 
 </pre> 
 * Install, 
 <pre> 
 $ make install 
 </pre> 

 h3. Deploy Python setuptools 

 Now, install the Python setup tools (0.6c11) for Python 2.7. For full information, see http://pypi.python.org/pypi/setuptools. 

 * Log in as super-user e.g. using @sudo su -@ or @su@. 
 * Get the setuptools egg, 
 <pre> 
 $ wget http://pypi.python.org/packages/2.7/s/setuptools/setuptools-0.6c11-py2.7.egg#md5=fe1f997bc722265116870bc7919059ea 
 </pre> 
 * Execute the egg, 
 <pre> 
 $ sh setuptools-0.6c11-py2.7.egg  
 </pre> 

 This will install the Python @easy_install@ tool. 

 h2. Deploy ImageMagick 

 The ImageMagick library is used to convert between image types in the MAUS web-front end. For full information see http://www.imagemagick.org/script/index.php 

 Check to see if you already have this as it is a commonly deployed tool, 
 <pre> 
 $ /usr/local/bin/convert -h 
 Version: ImageMagick 6.7.4-0 2011-12-13 Q16 http://www.imagemagick.org 
 Copyright: Copyright (C) 1999-2011 ImageMagick Studio LLC 
 Features: OpenMP     
 </pre> 
 If so then *go down to* the next section on installing Django, MagickWand and PIL. 

 To install ImageMagick 6.7.4, 

 * Log in as super-user e.g. using @sudo su -@ or @su@. 
 * Get and unpack ImageMagick, 
 <pre> 
 $ wget http://www.imagemagick.org/download/ImageMagick.tar.gz 
 $ gunzip ImageMagick.tar.gz 
 $ tar -xf ImageMagick.tar 
 $ cd ImageMagick-6.7.4-0/ 
 </pre> 
 * Configure, 
 <pre> 
 $ ./configure 
 </pre> 
 * Make, 
 <pre> 
 $ make 
 </pre> 
 * Install, 
 <pre> 
 $ make install 
 </pre> 
 ** This places libraries in @/usr/local/lib@. 
 * Cache the libraries, 
 <pre> 
 $ ldconfig /usr/local/lib 
 </pre> 
 ** This avoids problems with libraries not being found by Python's magickwand library. 
 * Check, 
 <pre> 
 $ /usr/local/bin/convert -h 
 Version: ImageMagick 6.7.4-0 2011-12-13 Q16 http://www.imagemagick.org 
 Copyright: Copyright (C) 1999-2011 ImageMagick Studio LLC 
 Features: OpenMP     
 </pre> 

 h2. Deploy Django, MagickWand and Pyton Image Library Python packages 

 Install these Python packages using @easy_install@: 

 * If you do NOT have and do NOT want to download the MAUS software and have deployed Python 2.7 as a super-user then, first log in as super-user e.g. using @sudo su -@ or @su@. 
 * Run, 
 <pre> 
 $ easy_install django 
 $ easy_install magickwand 
 $ easy_install pil 
 </pre> 

 Check MagickWand, 
 <pre> 
 $ python 
 $ import magickwand 
 $ from magickwand.image import Image 
 ... 
 </pre> 
 * If you get an error like, 
 <pre> 
 Traceback (most recent call last): 
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module> 
   File "build/bdist.linux-i686/egg/magickwand/image.py", line 2, in <module> 
   File "build/bdist.linux-i686/egg/magickwand/api/__init__.py", line 1, in <module> 
     # 
   File "build/bdist.linux-i686/egg/magickwand/api/lib.py", line 11, in <module> 
   File "/home/michaelj/maus-bzr/maus/third_party/install/lib/python2.7/ctypes/__init__.py",  
   line 353, in __init__ self._handle = _dlopen(self._name, mode) 
 OSError: libMagickWand.so.5: cannot open shared object file:  
  No such file or directory 
 </pre> 
 * then run @ldconfig@ as described in the instructions for ImageMagick above. 

 h2. Deploy Apache 2.2 

 Apache 2.2 (http://httpd.apache.org/) is an HTTP server. For full deployment information, see http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/install.html 

 If you do *not* want to use Apache 2 but are happy to use the stand-alone lightweight Django web server then *go down to *Deploy the MAUS Django web front-end*. 

 * Log in as super-user e.g. using @sudo su -@ or @su@. 
 * Download, 
 <pre> 
 $ wget http://mirrors.ukfast.co.uk/sites/ftp.apache.org//httpd/httpd-2.2.22.tar.gz 
 </pre> 
 * Extract, 
 <pre> 
 $ gzip -d httpd-2.2.22.tar.gz  
 $ tar xvf httpd-2.2.22.tar 
 $ cd httpd-2.2.22 
 </pre> 
 * Configure, 
 <pre> 
 $ ./configure 
 </pre> 
 ** This uses a default deployment directory of @/usr/local/apache2@. 
 * Compile, 
 <pre> 
 $ make  
 </pre> 
 * Install, 
 <pre> 
 $ make install  
 </pre> 
 * Start-up server, 
 <pre> 
 $ /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl -k start 
 </pre> 
 ** If you get an error like, 
 <pre> 
 (98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address [::]:80 
 (98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address 0.0.0.0:80 
 no listening sockets available, shutting down 
 Unable to open logs 
 </pre> 
 ** Then edit @/usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf@, 
 <pre> 
 $ xemacs /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf  
 </pre> 
 ** and change, 
 <pre> 
 Listen 80  
 </pre> 
 ** to a port that is not in use e.g. 
 <pre> 
 Listen 9090 
 </pre> 
 ** and start Apache, 
 <pre> 
 $ /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl -k start 
 </pre> 
 * Browse to http://localhost:8080 (or whatever port you specified above) and you should see @It works!"@ 

 Useful files: 

 * Configuration: @/usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf@ 
 * Error log: @/usr/local/apache2/logs/error_log@ 

 h2. mod_wsgi deployment 

 mod_wsgi (http://code.google.com/p/modwsgi/) is an Apache module allowing the hosting of Python applications which suppport Python's WSGI (Web Server Gateway Interface). For full deployment information, see http://code.google.com/p/modwsgi/wiki/QuickInstallationGuide, http://code.google.com/p/modwsgi/wiki/InstallationInstructions and    http://code.google.com/p/modwsgi/wiki/InstallationIssues 

 * Download latest release (July 2010), 
 <pre> 
 $ wget http://modwsgi.googlecode.com/files/mod_wsgi-3.3.tar.gz 
 </pre> 
 * Extract, 
 <pre> 
 $ gunzip mod_wsgi-3.3.tar.gz  
 $ tar -xf mod_wsgi-3.3.tar 
 $ cd mod_wsgi-3.3 
 </pre> 
 * Set Python library path.  
 ** If you have Python 2.7 installed and it is your default Python then skip this step.  
 ** If you are using Python 2.7 in the MAUS software then set @LD_PYTHON_PATH@ to the location of its libraries e.g. if using Python bundled with MAUS, set: 
 <pre> 
 $ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/user/maus/third_party/install/lib/ 
 </pre> 
 * Configure, 
 ** If you have Python 2.7 installed and it is your default Python then run, 
 <pre> 
 $ ./configure --with-apxs=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs 
 </pre> 
 ** If you are using Python 2.7 in the MAUS software you need to provide the path, so run, 
 <pre> 
 $ ./configure --with-apxs=/usr/local/apache2/bin/apxs 
   --with-python=/home/user/maus/third_party/install/bin/python2.7 
 </pre> 
 ** If you get an error like: 
 <pre> 
 /home/user/maus/third_party/install/bin/python2.7: error while loading  
 shared libraries: libpython2.7.so.1.0: cannot open shared object file:  
 No such file or directory 
 </pre> 
 ** Then set the @LD_LIBRARY_PATH@ as above. 
 ** If you get an error like: 
 <pre> 
 checking for apxs2... no 
 checking for apxs... no 
 checking Apache version... ./configure: line 1704: apxs: command not found 
 ./configure: line 1704: apxs: command not found 
 ./configure: line 1705: apxs: command not found 
 ./configure: line 1708: /: is a directory 

 checking for python... /home/user/maus/third_party/install/bin/python 
 ./configure: line 1877: apxs: command not found 
 configure: creating ./config.status 
 config.status: error: cannot find input file: Makefile.in 
 </pre> 
 ** Then you forgot to provide the path to Apache's @apxs@ command, 
 * Compile, 
 <pre> 
 $ make 
 </pre> 
 * Install, 
 <pre> 
 $ make install 
 </pre> 
 * A @mod_wsgi.so@ library is installed in @/usr/local/apache2/modules@. 
 * Configure Apache, edit @/usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf@, 
 <pre> 
 $ xemacs /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf  
 </pre> 
 * and add, 
 <pre> 
 LoadModule wsgi_module modules/mod_wsgi.so 
 </pre> 
 * Set the @LD_LIBRARY_PATH@ in the Apache environment. 
 ** If you have Python 2.7 installed and it is your default Python then skip this step.  
 ** If you are using Python 2.7 in the MAUS software then set @LD_PYTHON_PATH@ to the location of its libraries e.g. if using Python bundled with MAUS, then: 
 *** Edit @/usr/local/apache2/bin/envvars@ and add a line to set the Python library path e.g. 
 <pre> 
 LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/home/user/maus/third_party/install/lib/:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH"  
 </pre> 
 *** Ensure that the permissions in this path allow group and world read and execute permission (755) e.g.: 
 <pre> 
 $ ls -l /home 
 drwxr-xr-x 26 user group 4096 Mar    6 10:08 user 
 </pre> 
 ** If not then set these, 
 <pre> 
 $ chmod go+rx /home/user 
 </pre> 
 * Restart Apache, 
 <pre> 
 $ /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl restart 
 </pre> 
 * If all is well you should see, in @/usr/local/apache2/logs/error_log@ a line like, 
 <pre> 
 [Tue Feb 07 18:50:37 2012] [notice] Apache/2.2.22 (Unix) mod_wsgi/3.3  
 Python/2.7.2 configured -- resuming normal operations 
 </pre> 
 * If you see an error like, 
 <pre> 
 [Tue Feb 07 18:46:40 2012] [notice] SIGHUP received.    Attempting to restart 
 httpd: Syntax error on line 55 of /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf: Cannot  
 load /usr/local/apache2/modules/mod_wsgi.so into server:  
 libpython2.7.so.1.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory 
 </pre> 
 ** then you have to set the @LD_LIBRARY_PATH@ as above. 
 * If you see an error like, 
 <pre> 
 Could not find platform independent libraries <prefix> 
 Could not find platform dependent libraries <exec_prefix> 
 Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>] 
 ImportError: No module named site 
 </pre> 
 ** then it is likely you did not set the file permissions for the directory in which Python is as described above. 
 * Clean up, 
 <pre> 
 $ make clean 
 </pre> 

 To check your installation (following http://code.google.com/p/modwsgi/wiki/CheckingYourInstallation), 

 * List server information, 
 <pre> 
 $ /usr/local/apache2/bin/httpd    -V 
 Server version: Apache/2.2.22 (Unix) 
 ... 
 Server MPM:       Prefork

 </pre> 
 ** You should see the link to your Python library. 

 h2. Deploy Deploying the MAUS Django web front-end 

 * Check-out the MAUS Django code, 
 <pre> 
 $ bzr branch -v lp:~michaelj-h/maus-apps/devel maus-apps 
 </pre> 
 * Set up environment, 
 <pre> 
 $ cd maus-apps 
 $ ./configure 
 $ ./install.sh 
 </pre> 
 * Copy a couple of sample images, 
 <pre> 
 $ cp images/* media/raw 
 </pre> 

 * Log in as super-user e.g. using @sudo su -@ or @su@. 
 * Edit Apache 2.2 environment, so it has access to the MAUS and MAUS web-front end environments (in particular all the Python libraries that have been easy_installed): 
 <pre> 
 $ xemacs -nw /usr/local/apache2/bin/envvars 
 </pre> 
 * Add, changing to use your own paths, 
 <pre> 
 source /home/michaelj/maus-bzr/maus/env.sh  
 source /home/michaelj/maus-apps/env.sh 
 </pre> 
 * Ensure that the permissions in to your paths allow group and world read and execute permission (755) e.g.: 
 <pre> 
 $ ls -l /home 
 drwxr-xr-x 26 michaelj epcc 4096 Mar    6 10:08 michaelj 
 </pre> 
 ** If not then set these, 
 <pre> 
 $ chmod go+rx /home/michaelj 
 </pre> 
 * Edit Apache 2 configuration, 
 <pre> 
 $ xemacs -nw /usr/local/apache2/conf/httpd.conf 
 </pre> 
 Add, 
 <pre> 
 WSGIScriptAlias / ${MAUS_WEB_DIR}/apache/django.wsgi   
 
 # Location of django.wsgi  
 <Directory ${MAUS_WEB_DIR}/apache>  
 Order deny,allow   
 Allow from all   
 </Directory>  
 </pre> 
 * where: 
 ** @/@ specifies the root URL - so all URL requests will be directed to Django. 
 ** @/...@ - location of WSGI file within the MAUS Django project. 
 * Restart Apache 2.2, 
 <pre> 
 $ /usr/local/apache2/bin/apachectl restart 
 </pre> 
 * Test, 
 ** Visit http://localhost:8080/maus/, remembering to change the port number if you use a custom port.
