Installing the Web Portal Components

Enable the TeamDrive Web Portal yum Repository

The TeamDrive Web Portal components are available in the form of RPM packages, hosted in a dedicated yum repository. This makes the installation and applying of future updates of the software very easy — you can simply run yum update to keep your Web Portal software up to date.

To enable the repository, you need to download the td-webportal.repo file and place it into the directory /etc/yum.repos.d/, e.g. by using wget:

[root@webportal ~]# wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/td-webportal.repo \
http://repo.teamdrive.net/td-webportal.repo

This will enable the “TeamDrive Web Portal Version 1.0” repository, which you can check by running yum repolist afterwards:

[root@webportal ~]# yum repolist

Download and Install the TeamDrive Web Portal Package

Note

In case of using a white label version of TeamDrive with own customized UI’s, colors and logo, please contact TeamDrive Systems how to install your white label customized Web Portal Client UI. Otherwise proceed with the following standard installation.

Perform the download and installation of the Web Portal installation RPM package using the yum package manager:

[root@webportal ~]# yum install td-webportal-clientui

The TeamDrive Web Portal Client UI depends on the TeamDrive Web Portal and the Yvva Runtime Environment version 1.3 or later to be installed and configured beside other required software components like the Apache Web-Server and Apache SSL module. They will be installed by yum as a dependency on td-webportal-clientui automatically.

Once the TeamDrive Web Portal software has been installed successfully, you can proceed with the initial configuration.

Installing the Web Portal HTML Documentation (optional)

The documentation for the Web Portal (in HTML format) can be installed locally, so you can access it directly from the Web Portal (or any other host running an Apache HTTP Server).

To install the HTML Documentation, install the following package via yum from the “TeamDrive Web Portal” repository:

[root@webportal ~]# yum install td-webportal-doc-html

The HTML documents will be installed in directory /var/www/html/td-webportal-doc. From your web browser, open the following URL to access the documentation:

Note

This step is optional. If you leave the documentation installed when the Web Portal goes into production and is accessible from the public Internet, you should ensure to restrict access to this URL to trusted hosts or networks only. This can be achieved by adding the appropriate access control rules to the file /etc/httpd/conf.d/td-webportal-doc.httpd.conf.
