PART 2

Install MYSQL Package with yum Repository on Centos.

    $ yum install mysql –y

Start Service of MYSQL,

    /etc/init.d/mysqld start

MYSQL USER ROOT PASSWORT PROTECTED CONFIGURATION

First Method

    /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation

Second Method

    /usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root -h nagios.testdomain.com password ‘redhat’

    [root@testserver jboss-5.1.0]# /etc/init.d/mysqld start

    Initializing MySQL database:  Installing MySQL system tables… OK

    Filling help tables… OK

    To start mysqld at boot time you have to copy

    support-files/mysql.server to the right place for your system

    PLEASE REMEMBER TO SET A PASSWORD FOR THE MySQL root USER !

    To do so, start the server, then issue the following commands:
    /usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root password ‘new-password’

    /usr/bin/mysqladmin -u root -h testserver.testdomain.com password ‘new-password’

Alternatively you can run:

    /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation

which will also give you the option of removing the test databases and anonymous user created by default. This is strongly recommended for production servers. See the manual for more instructions.

You can start the MySQL daemon with:

    cd /usr ; /usr/bin/mysqld_safe &

You can test the MySQL daemon with mysql-test-run.pl

    cd /usr/mysql-test ; perl mysql-test-run.pl

Please report any problems with the /usr/bin/mysqlbug script!

[ OK ]

Starting mysqld: [ OK ]

    [root@testserver jboss-5.1.0]# /usr/bin/mysql_secure_installation

    NOTE: RUNNING ALL PARTS OF THIS SCRIPT IS RECOMMENDED FOR ALL MySQL

    SERVERS IN PRODUCTION USE!  PLEASE READ EACH STEP CAREFULLY!

    In order to log into MySQL to secure it, we’ll need the current

    password for the root user.  If you’ve just installed MySQL, and

    you haven’t set the root password yet, the password will be blank,

    so you should just press enter here.

    Enter current password for root (enter for none):

    OK, successfully used password, moving on…

    Setting the root password ensures that nobody can log into the MySQL

    root user without the proper authorisation.

    Set root password? [Y/n] y

    New password:

    Re-enter new password:

    Password updated successfully!

    Reloading privilege tables..

    … Success!

     

    By default, a MySQL installation has an anonymous user, allowing anyone

    to log into MySQL without having to have a user account created for

    them.  This is intended only for testing, and to make the installation

    go a bit smoother.  You should remove them before moving into a

    production environment.

     

    Remove anonymous users? [Y/n] y

    … Success!

     

    Normally, root should only be allowed to connect from ‘localhost’.  This

    ensures that someone cannot guess at the root password from the network.

     

    Disallow root login remotely? [Y/n] y

    … Success!

     

    By default, MySQL comes with a database named ‘test’ that anyone can

    access.  This is also intended only for testing, and should be removed

    before moving into a production environment.

     

    Remove test database and access to it? [Y/n] y

    – Dropping test database…

    … Success!

    – Removing privileges on test database…

    … Success!

     

    Reloading the privilege tables will ensure that all changes made so far

    will take effect immediately.

    Reload privilege tables now? [Y/n] y

    … Success!

     

    Cleaning up…

 

All done! If you’ve completed all of the above steps, your MySQL installation should now be secure.

Thanks for using MySQL!

Login MYSQL Server with User Root

    mysql –u root –p’ redhat’
    Now We Create Database For Liferay.

    SQL> CREATE DATABASE lportal DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8;

    SQL>quit;

PART 3

Create a Directory for Liferay.

    Cd /usr && mkdir liferay && cd liferay

Now We Download Liferay Package.

I download and extract Liferay within and the extracted folder to /usr/liferay

WITH TOMCAT

    Wget  http://sourceforge.net/projects/lportal/files/Liferay%20Portal/6.0.5/liferay-portal-tomcat-6.0.5.zip/download

WITH JBOSS

    Wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/lportal/files/Liferay%20Portal/6.0.6/liferay-portal-jboss-6.0.6-20110225.zip/download

We create the configuration file via vim Portal-Ext.Properties File

    cd $LIFERAY_HOME/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/classes

vi portal-ext.properties

Please Change Credentials Settings as per Your Need.

##############################

### MY SQL LIFERAY DB SETTING###

##############################

    jdbc.default.driverClassName=com.mysql.jdbc.Driver
    jdbc.default.url=jdbc:mysql://localhost/lportal?useUnicode=true&characterEn

    coding=UTF-8&useFastDateParsing=false
    jdbc.default.username=root
    jdbc.default.password=redhat
    schema.run.enabled=true
    schema.run.minimal=true

We set permission of some files as per need to be executable

    cd $LIFERAY_HOME/bin

    chmod +x *.sh

The following command starts Liferay, initial startup may take some time (10 to 15 mins depending on hardware) as the database is created etc. Please be patient.

    $LIFERAY_HOME/bin/startup.sh

    To access Liferay navigate to http://:8080
