A Web-based smoke test server.
smolder project can be used by developers and testers to upload (manually or automatically) and view smoke/regression tests using the Test Anything Protocol.
Details and trends can be viewed in various formats (HTML, XML, YAML) and also via email.
Once you've downloaded a Smolder binary distribution, or built one from source, un-tar it and enter the directory created:
tar zxvf smolder-1.013-RH7_3-perl5.6.1-i686-linux.tar.gz
To install, run bin/smolder_install as root, providing options describing how to setup Smolder:
These options are described below.
Before you install you must gather the following information. The following variables should be replaced in example shell commands with the appropriate values.
Host name used for Smolder's main Apache virtual host (e.g., "cms23.foo.com"). This is the master host which provides a list of all configured Smolder instances. Often this is the hostname of the machine itself, although systems with multiple Smolder installations must choose different HostNames for each.
IP address used for the Smolder Apache server and FTP server. You'll need to arrange DNS to point this IPAddress at HostName.
Name of MySQL user which is used by this CMS installation (e.g., "smolderdb"). This user will be created if it does not exist.
MySQL user password which is used by this Smolder installation (e.g., "xyzzy"). If the MySQL user already exists this must be the correct password for the user.
