Anybody Tried Polarion Enterprise over Linux?

Postby mamounjamous » Mon Jun 11, 2007 4:07 am

in the name of Allah

Hii all
If there is somebody here have installed successfully Polarion over any Linux platform, would you please share with me the steps you have gone through to install it?
I mean the steps besides the one written in the README.html file which comes with the Polarion backage for linux :)

Hi I've a Polarion enterprise running on a debian sarge server, the two main problem were:

1) mod_jk, you have to build it from sources visit, i've used the 1.2.21 version and now i'm upgrading to the 1.2.23

2) svn you have to build as well but it's truly a matter of ./configure, make, make install

for java 1.4 there are .deb packages and there's no hassle to install it.

let me know if you need more details

In the name of Allah

Dear ffrumento

Would you please If you have used a Guide to install Polarion that shows you what to do step by step, to post it here for me?
I'm new to Linux, although I'm enjoying my time learning Linux and Installing Polarion .. since I'm getting experience with this amazing platform .. hehehe, But I want to get Polarion RUNNING on it asap.

btw, the link you posted last time doesn't work :)

have a great day.

in the name of Allah

It would be much clearer for me if you mentioned what Packages did you download and use first ... so I can do the same.
I've dowloaded and installed successfully BerkeleyDB package .. but when I'v started doing the same things to Apache Server ... I've got some dependencies ...
by the way ... I do have apache running on my Server ... but I failed to connect it to Berkeley ... and previously when I used the Full package installation of Polarion ... I've met the same problem ... I couldn't connect components to each other .. thats why I decided to start from scratch ... I think it would be much better and clearer .. isn't it !!

thanks for ur help again man :)

have a nice day

2) Configure apache as detailes in user guide of polarion "Installing Polarion on Linux -> Required configuration of 3rd-party software".
in debian to enable mod_svn you have to make symbolic link into /etc/apache2/mod-enabled point to /etc/apache2/mod-available

ln -s /etc/apache2/mod-available/dav.load /etc/apache2/mod-enabled/dav.load

ln -s /etc/apache2/mod-available/dav_fs.load /etc/apache2/mod-enabled/dav_fs.load

ln -s /etc/apache2/mod-available/dav_fs.conf /etc/apache2/mod-enabled/dav_fs.conf

ln -s /etc/apache2/mod-available/dav_svn.load /etc/apache2/mod-enabled/dav_svn.load

ln -s /etc/apache2/mod-available/dav_svn.conf /etc/apache2/mod-enabled/dav_svn.conf

ln -s /etc/apache2/mod-available/auth_pam.load /etc/apache2/mod-enabled/auth_pam.load

3) the URL for mod_jk is: there was a misplaced comma at the end of line. i remember the installation was straightforward following the build instruction.

4) About the SVN you have to go here and follow instruction, i've used subversion-1.4.3.tar.gz and subversion-deps-1.4.3.tar.gz, right now are available 1.4.4 packages but i think it should not make any difference.

ATTENTION!!! if you use a native language debian installation the polarion installer will not recognize subversion, it is safe to force prerequisite only if you are sure the system will use the self-build subversion package (use the command "which svn" to check this, the result shoud be "/usr/local/bin/svn")

5) about to build a java package from sun tar.gz there is a fast guide here you can download the tar.gz files from sun site remeber to use 1.4.x version or polarion refuse to work.

hope this help

good luck

Re: Anybody Tried Polarion Enterprise over Linux?

Postby rule-of-three » Mon Dec 15, 2008 1:22 am

I success to install it to Ubuntu but now I restored polarion from backups and also updated Ubuntu to 8.10 and now SVN is 1.5.+

Polarion won't work any more and mod_jk seems not but Tomcat to internet..

Polarion startups and runing..

Commonly mod_jk tries to connect to Tomcat without polarion runing and then there is just Service is not Runing message..

I had the same problem and I sent it to Polarion Support.
The answers should be the solution for your problem.

I verified the installation on Ubuntu8.10 (released October 30). I used edition server/64-bit.

The installation ran without problem and both processes (Apache and Polarion-java) started successfully.

The problem is in passing the request from Apache to Tomcat by mod_jk.

Differences between Ubuntu 8.04 and Ubuntu 8.10:

Ubuntu8.04 => Apache 2.2.8 + mod_jk 1.2.25 ...

Ubuntu8.10 => Apache 2.2.9 + mod_jk 1.2.26 ...

So, it looks like our Apache configuration is not right for the latest version of Apache... (more exactly the latest is Apache 2.2.10)

I found a working configuration for 8.10/Apache2.2.9, the fix is quite easy:

insert "JkMount /polairon/* ... worker1" between line </Directory> and </VirtualHost> at the end of the file: /etc/apache2/sites-available/default

so it will look like:



JkMount /polarion worker1

JkMount /polarion/* worker1

JkMount /svnwebclient/* worker1

JkMount /svnwebclient worker1


or move what is in the file /etc/apache2/conf.d/polarion.conf section #content of

to mentioned place in /etc/apache2/sites-available/default

I hope this answer is as helpful as it was for me.

I got it to work..

But is there way to use mod_proxy instead mod_jk?

mod_proxy takes less CPU/RAM from server..

I success to install ALM 3.2.1 to Ubuntu.

It was simple, but in your installation manual haves one small bug and
possible also in script.
It success only if I make this:

1. Install by apt-get Apache, SVN, mod_svn, mod_davsvn, mod_jk
2. Add user system user polarion
3. Install Java 1.5 from Linux 32 bit .bin package
4. set JDK_HOME to libinstall/ and www-data user and www-data
5. run after it is chmoded to exeutable
6. check is everything ok in files in /opt/polartion/etc/
7. run /etc/init.d/polarion init
8. Now most IMPORTANT.. chmod 777 /opt/polartion/etc/* .. possible Java
can not load config and properties files withhout this
9. Now run /etc/init.d/polarion start and everything is ok.

But it stop working after some days.. I am not sure it reason of I commited 800 Mb od data to it and commit failed..

Return to “Polarion Application Lifecycle Management (ALM)”
