Installing Nictool On CentOS 5

What is Nictool?

Nictool is a free software for managing DNS, but for download we have to register at www.nictool.com; Nictool can export from djbdns, BIND, PowerDNS. All data is stored in MySQL and can be managed over the web using a browser. This tutorial shows how to install Nictool on CentOS 5.2.

 

1. Download nictool

 

2. Extract nictoolclient

[root@server ~]# tar -zxvf NicToolClient-2.07.tar.gz

[root@server ~]# cd NicToolClient-2.07

 

3. Install perl modules

[root@server NicToolClient-2.07]# perl Makefile.PL

[root@server NicToolClient-2.07]# make install clean

 

4. Moving directory to web folder

[root@server NicToolClient-2.07]# cd ..

[root@server ~]# mv NicToolClient-2.0.7.tar.gz /var/www/html/NicToolClient

 

5. Edit file httpd.conf like this

[root@server ~]# nano /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName server.com
Alias /images/ "/var/www/html/NicToolClient/htdocs/images/"
DocumentRoot /var/www/html/NicToolClient/htdocs
DirectoryIndex index.cgi

<Files "*.cgi">
SetHandler perl-script
PerlResponseHandler ModPerl::Registry
PerlOptions +ParseHeaders
Options +ExecCGI
</Files>

<Directory "/var/www/html/NicToolClient/htdocs">
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>
</VirtualHost>

 

6. And we can edit the file nictoolclient.conf 

[root@server ~]# nano /var/www/html/NicToolClient/lib/nictoolclient.conf

Change this line:

$NicToolClient::app_dir     = '/usr/local/www/NicToolClient';

to:

$NicToolClient::app_dir     = '/var/www/html/NicToolClient';

 

7. Restart service apache

[root@server ~]# service httpd restart

Stopping httpd:                                            [  OK  ]

Starting httpd:                                            [  OK  ]

Now we can try to install NictoolServer.

 

8. Extract package NictoolServer 

[root@server ~]# tar -zxvf NicToolServer-2.07.tar.gz

[root@server ~]# cd NicToolServer-2.07

 

9. Install Perl Modules

[root@server NicToolServer-2.07]# perl Makefile.PL

If we get messages like this: 

'Warning: prerequisite Apache2::SOAP 0 not found'

please download Apache2::SOAP in www.cpan.org

You can download the module from this url: http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/R/RK/RKOBES/Apache2-SOAP-0.73.tar.gz

[root@server NicToolServer]# tar zxvf Apache2-SOAP-0.73.tar.gz

[root@server NicToolServer]# cd Apache2-SOAP-0.73

[root@server Apache2-SOAP-0.73]# perl Makefile.PL

[root@server Apache2-SOAP-0.73]# make

[root@server Apache2-SOAP-0.73]# make test

[root@server Apache2-SOAP-0.73]# make install

 

10. If your Apache2::SOAP has been installed you can continue to install perl modules

[root@server NicToolServer-2.07]# make deps

[root@server NicToolServer-2.07]# make install clean

 

11. Moving folder to web folder

[root@server ~]# mv NicToolServer-2.07 /var/www/html/NicToolServer
