Installing fisheye 3.2


I am trying to install fisheye on linux environment.

I have set up two folders install and data. I want all the configurations that I make to go into the data folder. I guess i can do it by setting the fisheye home directory. How do i set the fisheye home directory?

The problem was that we had a startup script for fisheye and i was not starting up wit hthe right user therefore that script was not getting kicked in.

After starting the script as root, i resolved the issue.

It sounds like you're pretty much there with the install and data folders. All of my configuration is in my data folder in the config.xml file, which does not get removed during updates and preserves any configuration changes. The Fisheye installation files get extracted to the install folder. You should just need to setup a FISHEYE_INST environment variable and point it to your data folder.

hey Jeff

thanks for your comments. I have defined my FISHEYE_INST variable to point at my data folder however the moment i start my fisheye installation, the data is not going into my FISHEYE_INST folder but to my FISHEYE_HOME folder (which is fecru3.2.3). I am not sure, how to fix this.Any ideas?

Could you verify that your system variable is setup correctly by running "echo $FISHEYE_INST" in the terminal?

tried running echo command, but it does not return anything; am i missing something basic?

That means the system variable isn't set properly or that you need to refresh your current shell to pick up on the variable. Try opening a new shell and see if the echo command works. If it does not, verify that you've followed the steps for setting up the variable. If you're logged in as the user that will be running Fisheye, you can edit ~/.profile and if you want all users to have the variable, edit /etc/profile

After you've made the change, restart or open a new shell to pick up on the new variable.
