2.6 Installation Part II

Open within your preferred browser. A wizard will guide you through the installation.

Read the license agreement (GPL v2) - proceed if you agree with it.

Insert the MySQL root user password that you set at step 2.4 and insert a password for the otrs database user.

The database has been created.

Insert your server's FQDN, your company name and select the standard language.


Finally restart the Apache server.

/etc/init.d/httpd restart

You should take a look at the OTRS documentation to find out how to use the web interface.

this tutorial was very interesting and helpful

i used to install otrs2 on ubuntu but not very stable and compatible.

 I need to add this: after installing otrs you need to install even SOAP::Lite via CPAN. this is to allow the installation of some packages not produced by Otrs like Opennms.

 Anyway...GREAT JOB ;)
