Advertnet is a tool for managing multiple networks of advertising boards, ready to work with SecondLife.

Installation:

Deploy the Rails application using the "advertnet-install" binary. This binary is located in the "bin" directory of the standard gem location ("/var/lib/gems/1.8/bin" on Debian for example). You should add this directory to your PATH to facilitate the use of gems.

advertnet-install --directory /opt/advertnet

Dependencies:

This application needs a MySQL 5.0 database, and a Second Life environment.

After installing MySQL, create 3 databases:

advertnet_development
advertnet_test
advertnet_production

The default "config/database.yml" is configured to use the "root" account without a password. You must eventually edit it in order to change the login or add a password.

For example, you can create a user, for example advertnet and give it read/write access (select, insert, update, create table, drop table, alter table, etc.) on the 3 databases.

Basic MySQL configuration

Run the following commands as root (for example on a Debian system):

for i in development test production ; do mysqladmin -u root create advertnet_$i ; done

Now create the SQL tables, run these commands from Advertnet‘s root directory:

rake db:migrate RAILS_ENV=development
rake db:migrate RAILS_ENV=production

Testing the configuration

To ensure that the application works correctly, first run the following commands:

rake db:test:prepare
rake test

Note: There is at least one unit test that is known to fails, other unit tests and all functional tests should pass correctly.
