Install Apache, PHP5, Database, Git:
sudo apt-get install php5 php5-cli php5-pgsql php5-xmlrpc php5-intl php5-curl php5-gd php5-xdebug php5-dbg postgresql apache2 git
Restart Apache
sudo service apache2 restart
Make a Mahara directory in the same place as Moodle
sudo mkdir /var/www/html/mahara
Then change into the Mahara directory
cd /var/www/html/mahara
Then change the permission (insert the username of the machine into the username. Don't use the word username)
sudo chown username:username /var/www/html/mahara
Get Mahara clone.
git clone .
Checkout the master(15.04) branch
git checkout master
Note: if this step doesn't work. You may have forgotten the fullstop off the end of the git clone command. It created a mahara directory inside the other mahara directory. Go in to the file explorer and delete the second instance.
Become Postgres user:
sudo su postgres
Open psql. After some preamble you should see the prompt postgres=#.
You should now see postgres=# ready and awaiting your command.
Create a user and don't use the PW that you use for your workstation:
CREATE USER maharauser WITH PASSWORD 'yourpassword';
As you previously did, you should see postgres=#
You are now going to create a database:
Exit to leave psql by pressing Ctrl-D
Exit back to your own user:
Make a data directory:
sudo mkdir /var/www/maharadata
Make directory writeable by mahara:
sudo chmod 777 /var/www/maharadata
In the code below make sure you change <your email address> to your actual work email address, without the <> signs.
$cfg = new stdClass();
$branch = 'master';
// database connection details
// valid values for dbtype are 'postgres8' and 'mysql5'
$cfg->dbtype  = 'postgres';
$cfg->dbhost  = 'localhost';
$cfg->dbuser  = 'maharauser';
$cfg->dbname  = "mahara";
$cfg->dbpass  = 'password';
$cfg->dataroot = "/var/www/maharadata";
$cfg->sendemail = true;
$cfg->sendallemailto = '<your email address>';
$cfg->productionmode = false;
$cfg->perftofoot = true;
An example config.php should appear:
* Copy all of the code above
* open text editor from start menu
* paste code
* save file in the directory: /var/www/html/mahara/htdocs/ and call it config.php
* save

How to install Mahara and Behat

Note: These instructions for Mahara and Behat setup are only for machines running Linux. They will not work for Windows machines

For dev's instructions to install a Mahara

Please use System_Administrator's_Guide/Installing_Mahara.

Otherwise, if you do not have Mahara installed

Follow the instructions for setting up Mahara.

Note: If you do have Mahara already installed, skip to #Behat_installation

Behat installation

Install Behat's dependencies:

sudo apt-get install curl openjdk-7-jre-headless

Add these config settings to the bottom of your Mahara config.php file, inside the htdocs/ subdirectory of the Mahara codebase.

Note: If /var/www/maharadata is not where you created your dataroot, you'll need to replace that with the correct path in the following commands
// Behat config
$cfg->dbprefix = ''; // Behat complains without dbprefix being set
$cfg->wwwroot = 'http://your.mahara.domain/';  // Add this if you do not have wwwroot set already, Behat complains with out it
$cfg->behat_dbprefix = 'behat_'; // must not empty
$cfg->behat_dataroot = "/var/lib/maharadata/behat"; // Behat's copy of mahara data
$cfg->behat_wwwroot = 'http://localhost:8000'; // Must be this

Make your data directory (check this matches what you set in config.php):

sudo mkdir /var/lib/maharadata/behat

Make directory writeable by mahara (check this is correct):

sudo chmod 777 /var/lib/maharadata/behat

Run Behat tests (change into your Mahara code directory first)

./test/behat/ run

For the first time of running behat, you need to wait for the Behat environment initialisation. This can take a while.

To run all tests

./test/behat/ run

To run your specific tests:

./test/behat/ run @yourtags
