I would like to discuss how to write a bash script to setup any github project and in particular PHP and mysql project. I would like take the example of engelsystem for this post.
First, we need to make a list of all environments and dependencies for our github project. For PHP and mysql project we need to install LAMP server.
The script to install all the dependencies for engelsystem are
echo "Update your package manager" apt-get update echo "Installing LAMP" echo "Install Apache" apt-get install apache2 echo "Install MySQL" apt-get install mysql-server php5-mysql echo "Install PHP" apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5 php5-mcrypt echo "Install php cgi" apt-cache search php5-cgi
We can even add echo statements with instructions.
Once we have installed LAMP. We need to clone the project from github. We need to install git and clone the repository. Script for installing git and cloning github repository are
echo "Install git" apt-get install git cd /var/www/html echo "Cloning the github repository" git clone --recursive https://github.com/fossasia/engelsystem.git cd engelsystem
Now we are in the project directory. Now we need to set up the database and migrate the tables. We are creating a database engelsystem and migrating the tables in install.sql and update.sql.
echo "enter mysql root password" # creating new database engelsystem echo "create database engelsystem" | mysql -u root -p echo "migrate the table to engelsystem database" mysql -u root -p engelsystem < db/install.sql mysql -u root -p engelsystem < db/update.sql
Once we are done with it. We need to copy config-sample.default.php to config.php and add the database and password for mysql.
echo "enter the database name username and password" cp config/config-sample.default.php config/config.php
Now edit the config.php file. Once we have done this we need to restart apache then we can view the login page at localhost/engelsystem/public
echo "Restarting Apache" service apache2 restart echo "Engelsystem is successfully installed and can be viewed on local server localhost/engelsystem/public"
We need to add all these instructions in install.sh file.
Now steps to execute a bash file.
Change the permissions of install.sh file
$ chmod +x install.sh
Now run the file from your terminal by executing the following command
