Complete setup guide, step-by-step

You can use Virtualenv create virtual environment (python2.7), then use
source bin/activate
pip install zc.buildout
now, you can check if bin/buildout is in your directory

Yes, and I just did it again but still: bash:bin/buildout: No such file or directory

When I run bin/buildout I get this errors:

Hi @tuaititecnologia

Senaite 2 was officialy released there is no need to run it from sources unless you want to try the development version.

Please follow the official installation instructions: Installation · SENAITE

Hi @ronaldm

I tried to follow the official installation instructions but those are the result:
Installing instance. Error: The requirement ('Plone==5.2.6') is not allowed by your [versions] constraint (4.3.19)

And when I try to launch Senaite:
(senaite) senaite@senaite-lims:~/senaitelims$ bin/instance start -bash: bin/instance: No such file or directory

Thats why everybody flows the alternative guide.

Change your buildout file at [source] , use https instead of git.

Hi @Pulimanti

You are trying to run Senaite 2 using Plone 4.3.19, Senaite 2 requires Plone 5.2.6

Please install and use Plone 5.2.6

I am not sure if “upgrading” Plone by changing your builtout.cfg and versions file to point to Plone 5.2.6 will work

Hi @ronaldm
I erase everything and I followed the official installation guide, but now I’m stuck once again:

Unable to find python3.8 on system exec path.

Please do one of the following:
1) Install python3.8 or python3.6+ as a system dev package\;
2) Use --with-python=... option to point the installer to a useable python.
(senaite) senaite@senaite-lims:~/Plone-5.2.6-UnifiedInstaller-1.0$

So I understand If I install Senaite 2.0 I need Plone 5.2.6 but Plone request Python 3.6+ but Senaite is compatibile just with Python 2.7.

Can someone help us please?

Thanks

Hi @Pulimanti

Senaite runs on Python 2.7. Did you activate your Python environment as per instructions under the install miniconda section

Sure @ronaldm as you can see:

(base) senaite@senaite-lims:~$ conda activate senaite
(senaite) senaite@senaite-lims:~$ sudo apt install build-essential
[sudo] password for senaite: 
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
The following additional packages will be installed:

Hi @Pulimanti

Please run which python to check the Python version and post the result here

I get forward and as the software asked me I insert the directory so I typed:

./install.sh standalone --target=/home/senaite --instance=senaitelims --password=admin --with-python=/home/senaite/miniconda2/envs/senaite/bin/python

But it gave me this error:

Unable to find libjpeg library and headers. These are required to build Plone. Please use your system package or port manager to install libjpeg dev. (Debian/Ubuntu libjpeg-dev) Exiting now.

So I did :

sudo apt-get install libjpeg-dev zlib1g-dev

And it Worked but when I launch this command:

(senaite) senaite@senaite-lims:~/senaitelims$ PYTHONHTTPSVERIFY=0 buildout

While:
Installing.
Getting section unifiedinstaller.
Initializing section unifiedinstaller.
Installing recipe plone.recipe.unifiedinstaller.

An internal error occurred due to a bug in either zc.buildout or in a
recipe being used:

Hi @Pulimanti

Please post the full error message. Please also share your buildout.cfg file or just the versions section

Hi @ronaldm

I checked the buildout.cfg and there were bugs so I decided to format and start over.

I have scrupulously followed the installation procedure making some changes, I hope they can help other people.

Dependecies

(add the following command)

sudo apt-get install libjpeg-dev zlib1g-dev

Download the Plone unified installer

(replace the commands with the following)

wget --no-check-certificate https://launchpad.net/plone/5.2/5.2.6/+download/Plone-5.2.6-UnifiedInstaller-1.0.tgz

tar xzf Plone-5.2.6-UnifiedInstaller-1.0.tgz

cd Plone-5.2.6-UnifiedInstaller-1.0

Install Plone

(replace the commands with the following, you need to specify where it has to point adding to the command --with-python= )

./install.sh standalone --target=/home/senaite --instance=senaitelims --password=admin --with-python=/home/senaite/miniconda2/envs/senaite/bin/python

Hi. i had the instances and plone installed successfully, when i start the plone with the command :

“$cd ~/plone/zinstance”
“$bin/plonectl start”

The plone starts in the terminal but the browser shows “problem loading” anytime i try to connect at http://your-server:8080

Kindly help

Thank you

Hi @Barry

Please run $bin/plonectl fg

and post the result here, there should be an error somewhere

Hi ronaldm. thanks for replying
here’s the display shown after typing the command you gave me

Hi @Barry

Senaite is up and running, please open your browser and go to: localhost:8080 or 0.0.0.0:8080

in the instructions, you need to replace “your-server” with the actual computers IP address

Best
Ronald

Hi @ronaldm
The link is working well thanks so much.

Now my concern is creating the “Buildout.cfg” which is confusing me !
kindly guide me

Thank you

Hi @Barry

my apologies for getting back to you late

Great.

What do you mean? The buildout.cfg is created during the Plone installation, you have to edit it to add your add-ons under the eggs section.
