Installation on Unix/Linux

To build and install ZOO-Project on your Web Server you will need 4 steps :

Build cgic

Run the following commands from the thirds/cgic directory to build the cgic library.

cd thirds/cgic
make

The cgic library originaly come from http://www.boutell.com/cgic.

Warning

You may need to edit the Makefile in case you are using a 64 bits platform for building and your fcgi library is not located in /usr/lib64.

Install ZOO-Kernel

For the impatient

Run the following commands from the directory where you Download and extracted the ZOO Kernel source code in order to build the zoo_loader.cgi CGI program with default options.

cd zoo-project/zoo-kernel
autoconf
./configure
make
make install

This should produce executables for the zoo_loader.cgi CGI program (located per default in /usr/lib/cgi-bin/) and a shared library libzoo_service (located per default in /usr/local/lib).

Warning

Edit ZOO-Kernel installation settings in the main.cfg file (set tmpPath and tmpUrl to fit your web server configuration).

Configure options

This section provides information on ZOO-Kernel configure options. It is recommanded to also read the ZOO-Kernel configuration section for configuration technical details.

Here is the list of available options in the same order as returned by ./configure --help command:

Specific CGI Directory

In the case your cgi-bin is not located in /usr/lib/ as it is assumed per default, then you can specify a specific target location by using the following option:

./configure --with-cgi-dir=/Lbrary/WebServer/CGI-Executables

This way, when you will run the make install command, the ZOO-Kernel will be deployed in the specified directory (so, /Lbrary/WebServer/CGI-Executables` in this example).

Specific main.cfg location (Optional)

Per default, the ZOO-Kernel search for the main.cfg file from its installation directory but, in case you want to store this file in another place, then you can use the --with-etc-dir option so it will search for the main.cfg file in the sysconfdir directory.

For instance, you can define that the directory to store the main.cfg file is the /etc/zoo-project directory, by using the following command:

./configure --with-etc-dir=yes --sysconfdir=/etc/zoo-project

Use a Database Backend (Optional)

If you want to share the ongoing informations of running services between various ZOO-Kernel instances then you should use this option: --with-db-backend. This way, both the GetStatus, GetResult and Dismiss requests can be run from any host accessing the same database. Obviously, this will require that the ZOO-Kernel is able to access the Database server. To learn how to configure this connection and how to create this database please refer to [1] and [2] respectively.

Note

By now, the ZOO-Kernel is not able to handle correctly the Dismiss request from any host. Nevertheless, it will provide valid response from any host, but only the host which is really handling the service will be able to stop it and remove all the linked files.

To create a new database to be used by the ZOO-Kernel, you have to load the schema.sql file. For instance, you may run the following:

createdb zoo_project
psql zoo_project -f zoo-project/zoo-kernel/sql/schema.sql

Note

You can choose another schema to store ZOO-Kernel specific informations. In such a case, you would need to edit the schema.sql file to uncomment line 33 and 34.

YAML Support (Optional)

If yaml.h file is not found in your /usr/include directory and libyaml.so is not found in /usr/lib, a --with-yaml option can be used to specify its location. For instance, if the headeer file lies in /usr/local/include and the shared library is located in /usr/local/lib, you may use the following command:

$ ./configure --with-yaml=/usr/local

FastCGI Support (Required)

If your FastCGI library is not available in the default search path, a --with-fastcgi option can be used to specify its location. For instance, if libfcgi.so lies in /usr/local/lib which is not in your LD_SEARCH_PATH, you may use the following command:

$ ./configure --with-fastcgi=/usr/local

GDAL Support (Required)

If gdal-config program is not found in your PATH, a --with-gdal-config option can be used to specify its location. For instance, if gdal-config lies in /usr/local/bin which is not in your PATH, you may use the following command:

$ ./configure --with-gdal-config=/usr/local/bin/gdal-config

GEOS Support (Optional)

If geos-config program is not found in your PATH, a --with-geosconfig option can be used to specify its location. For instance, if geos-config lies in /usr/local/bin which is not in your PATH, you may use the following command:

$ ./configure --with-geosconfig=/usr/local/bin/geos-config

CGAL Support (Optional)

If CGAL/Delaunay_triangulation_2.h program is not found in your /usr/include directory, a --with-cgal option can be used to specify its location. For instance, if the file lies in /usr/local/include which is not in your PATH, you may use the following command:

$ ./configure --with-cgal=/usr/local

MapServer Support (Optional)

In order to activate the WMS, WFS and WCS output support using MapServer, the --with-mapserver option must be used. The path to mapserver-config which is located in the source code of MapServer must also be set, using the following command:

$ ./configure --with-mapserver=/path/to/your/mapserver_config/

Read more about the Optional MapServer support.

XML2 Support (Required)

If xml2-config program is not found in PATH, a –with-xml2config option can be used to specify its location. For instance, if xml2-config is installed in /usr/local/bin which is not in PATH, you may use the following command:

$ ./configure --with-xml2config=/usr/local/bin/xml2-config

Python Support (Optional)

The --with-python=yes option is required to activate the ZOO-Kernel Python support, using the following command:

$ ./configure --with-python=yes

This assumes that python-config is found in your PATH. If not, then you can specify the Python installation directory using the following command (with Python installed in the /usr/local directory):

$ ./configure --with-python=/usr/local
Python Version

If multiple Python versions are available and you want to use a specific one, then you can use the --with-pyvers option as shown bellow:

$ ./configure --with-pyvers=2.7

JavaScript Support (Optional)

In order to activate the JavaScript support for ZOO-Kernel, the --with-js=yes configure option must be specified. If you are using a “Debian-like” GNU/Linux distribution then dpkg will be used to detect if the required packages are installed and you don’t have to specify anything here. The following command is only needed (assuming that js_api.h and libmozjs.so are found in default directories):

$ ./configure --with-js=yes

If you want to use a custom installation of SpiderMonkey , or if you are not using a Debian packaging system, then you’ll have to specify the directory where it is installed. For instance, if SpiderMonkey is in /usr/local/, then the following command must be used:

$ ./configure --with-js=/usr/local

PHP Support (Optional)

The --with-php=yes option is required to activate the ZOO-Kernel PHP support`, using the following command:

$ ./configure --with-php=yes

This assumes that php-config can be found in the <PATH>/bin directory . So, supposing the your php-config can be found in /usr/local/bin, then use the following command:

$ ./configure --with-php=/usr/local

Warning

ZOO-Kernel optional PHP support requires a local PHP Embedded installation. Read more here.

Java Support (Optional)

In order to activate the Java support for ZOO-Kernel, the –with-java configure option must be specified and sets the installation path of your Java SDK. For instance, if Java SDK is installed in the /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-1.6.0.22/ directory, then the following command can be used:

$ ./configure --with-java=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-1.6.0.22/

This assumes that the include/linux and jre/lib/i386/client/ subdirectories exist in /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-1.6.0.22/, and that the include/linux directory contains the jni.h headers file and that the jre/lib/i386/client/ directory contains the libjvm.so file.

Note

You can use the –with-java-rpath option to produce a binary aware of the libjvm location.

Note

With Mac OS X you only have to set macos as the value for the --with-java option to activate Java support. For example:

$ ./configure --with-java=macos

Perl Support (Optional)

The --with-perl=yes option can be used for activating the ZOO-Kernel Perl support, as follow:

$ ./configure --with-perl=yes

This assumes that perl is found in your PATH. For instance, if Perl is installed in /usr/local and /usr/local/bin is not found in your PATH, then the following command can be used (this assumes that /usr/local/bin/perl exists):

$ ./configure --with-perl=/usr/local

Orfeo Toolbox Support (Optional)

In order to activate the optional Orfeo Toolbox support, the --with-otb option must be used, using the following command:

$ ./configure --with-otb=/path/to/your/otb/

Read more about the Optional Orfeo Toolbox support.

Warning

To build the Orfeo Toolbox support you will require ITK, the default version of ITK is 4.5, in case you use another version, please make sure to use the --with-itk-version to specificy what is the version available on your system.

SAGA GIS Support (Optional)

In order to activate the optional SAGA GIS support, the –with-saga option must be used, using the following command:

$ ./configure --with-saga=/path/to/your/saga/

Read more about the Optional SAGA GIS support.

Warning

In case wx-config is not in your PATH please, make sure to use the --with-wx-config to specify its location.

Translation support (Optional)

The ZOO-Kernel is able to translate the messages it produces in different natural languages. This requires that you download the messages file translated in your language, if any. Then, for this translation support to work, you have to generate manually the requested file on your system. For instance for the French translation, you may use the following command:

msgfmt messagespo_fr_FR.utf8.po -o /usr/share/locale/fr/LC_MESSAGES/zoo-kernel.mo

The ZOO-Kernel is also able to handle translation of ZOO-Services. Please, refer to this document for more details on the procedure to add new ZOO-Service translation files.

Warning

The location of the final .mo file may vary depending on your system setup.

Install ZOO-Services

Warning

We present here a global installation procedure for basics ZOO-Services, for details about automatic installation of services provided by Optional Orfeo Toolbox support or Optional SAGA GIS support, please refer to there specific documentations.

Depending on the programming language used to implement the ZOO-Services you want to install, you will need to build a Services Provider. In the case of C and Fotran, you would create a shared library exporting the functions corresponding to all the ZOO-Services provided by this Services Provider. In case of Java, you will need to build a Java Class. In any other programming language, you should simply have to install the ServiceProvider and the zcfg files.

If building a Shared library or a Java class is required, then you should find a Makefile in the service directory which is responsible to help you build this Services Provider. So you should simply run the make command from the Service directory to generate the required file.

Then you simply need to copy the content of the cgi-env directory in cgi-bin.

To install the ogr/base-vect-ops Services Provider, supposing that your cgi-bin directory is /usr/local/lib use the following commands:

cd zoo-project/zoo-services/ogr/base-vect-ops
make
cp cgi-env/*.* /usr/lib/cgi-bin

Note

You may also run make install directly after make.

To install the hello-py Services Provider, use the following commands:

cd zoo-project/zoo-services/hello-py/
cp cgi-env/* /usr/lib/cgi-bin

Testing your installation

To test your installation yous should first be able to run the following command from the cgi-bin directory:

./zoo_loader.cgi "request=GetCapabilities&service=WPS"
