Here’s a little treat for you enterprise users, a quick guide to setting up a Betaville server on Red Hat Enterprise Linux! To get all the latest greatness, we’ll be getting the application directly from the subversion repository and setting it up ourselves.

yum install subversion
yum install java-1.6.0-sun.x86_64
yum install ant
mkdir betaville
cd betaville
svn co http://betaville.googlecode.com/svn/BetavilleApp/trunk BetavilleApp
svn co http://betaville.googlecode.com/svn/BetavilleServer/trunk BetavilleServer
cd BetavilleServer/util
./compile.sh

This will build the actual software, next is the process of setting up the software to do something! A script is provide to aid you with initializing a server, and can be run like so:

./initialize_server.sh

And we’re off to the races!
