      1 swerc - a minimalist document management system
      2 -----------------------------------------------
      4 swerc is simple werc, a fork of Uriel's werc at: http://werc.cat-v.org/
      6 Installation
      7 ------------
      9 Requirements:
     11 * An http server that can handle CGIs
     12 * Plan 9 from User Space: http://plan9.us - Or http://tools.suckless.org/9base
     13 * discount markdown: http://www.pell.portland.or.us/~orc/Code/discount/
     15 Note: swerc by default expects the Plan 9 tools to be installed under
     16 /usr/local/plan9/bin/, if you have installed them elsewhere you will need to
     17 edit the #! line in bin/werc.rc and customize the $plan9port variable in your
     18 etc/initrc.local.
     21 Instructions:
     23 Untar swerc at your desired location, configure httpd to use
     24 /path-to-your-werc-installation/bin/werc.rc as a cgi-script, it is recommended
     25 that you make werc.rc handle all non-static files (this can be done by setting
     26 it up as your 404 handler) and setup your virtual hosts to handle static files
     27 by setting the document root for the domain to
     28 /path-to-werc-installation/sites/yourdomain.com/, and create a directory for
     29 your web site under sites/ where you can start adding content right away.
     31 If you will want to allow updates via the web interface (eg., for wiki or
     32 comments apps) make sure all files under sites/ are writable by the user your
     33 cgi will run as, usually www-data, for example by doing: chown -R :www-data
     34 sites/; chmod -R g+w sites/
     36 If your Plan 9 from User Space installation is located somewhere else than the
     37 standard /usr/local/plan9/ you will need to edit the first line of bin/werc.rc
     38 (Note that p9p is picky about where it is located, once you run ./INSTALL you
     39 should *not* move it to a different directory without running ./INSTALL again.)
     41 For general configuration edit etc/initrc.
     42 Site (and directory) specific options can be set in a
     43 sites/example.com/_werc/config file inside the site's directory.
