Set up a local roll server for rocks-7.0

Set up a local roll server for rocks-7.0

At the very beginning of installation of rocks-7.0, we must define a roll server. It’s recommended to set up a local server to facilitate roll addition. There are some scripts to make this easy for non experts here. After doing steps 0, I and II, change your site configuration file (e.g /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default.conf in ubuntu or mint) to be like this:

## Definitions for (change according to your one)
<VirtualHost *:80>

# allow all access to the rolls RPMS
<Directory /var/www/html/rocks/7.0/install/rolls>
        AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
        Options FollowSymLinks Indexes ExecCGI
        DirectoryIndex /rocks/7.0/install/rolls/index.cgi
        Allow from all

Then do

sudo a2enmod cgi

and finally

sudo systemctl restart apache2.service
