Inscriptio Requirements
System Requirements

* Ruby 1.8.7
* Rails 3.0.5
* A postgresql 8.x database server. Other databases MAY work (e.g. mysql), but they are untested.
* A webserver capable of interfacing with Rails applications. Ideally, apache or nginx with mod_passenger installed.
* Linux or OSX. Linux would be easier.

Application Set-up Steps

* Get code from: https://github.com/berkmancenter/Inscrip…
* Run bundle install. You will probably have to install OS-vendor supplied libraries to satisfy some gem install requirements.
* Create the database and run migrations, modifying “config/database.yml” to suit your environment.
* Modify environment.rb for action_mailer config
* Run bootstrap rake tasks:
rake bootstrap:inscriptio:run_all
* Create cron job to automatically run rake tasks for sending out notifications expiring and expired reservations as well as deleting bulletin board posts after post lifetime:
rake inscriptio:cron_task:delete_posts
rake inscriptio:cron_task:send_expiration_notification
rake inscriptio:cron_task:send_expired_notification
rake inscriptio:cron_task:run_all
