Centos6 (and RHEL6) yum repository for Foswiki

These packages are built by a script that downloads the latest packages from http://foswiki.org/Extensions, generates an EPM manifest and then builds rpm packages - every night. I have not yet tested them with Redhat Enterprise 6 or fedora

To try it out, you'll need to add the EPEL repository, and then this one to your yum config:

rpm -Uvh http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
curl http://fosiki.com/Foswiki_rpms/foswiki.repo > foswiki.repo
note, if the epel-release rpm url does not work, see http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL/FAQ#Using_EPEL for the updated url (the version number is embedded in the rpm name, which makes perma-urls impossible)

if you have not yet set up your centos/rhel/fedora apache and firewall settings, you may need to do something to allow web traffic through the firewall.

sudo iptables -I INPUT -p tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT sudo service iptables save

you also need to disable SELinux, or know how to configure it to allow apache and foswiki to modify the files in /var/lib/foswiki
and then run

yum makecache

to see what foswiki extensions are available, run
yum search foswiki

to install foswiki, and some plugins:

yum install foswiki foswiki-workflowplugin foswiki-jscalendarcontrib foswiki-ldapcontrib 
then browse to http://servername/foswiki/bin/configure to enable the plugin and configure settings.

you should see over 336 (as of Jun 2013) packages - FoswikiPackagesList.txt
