Install Poll

Installing Poll involves the following steps:

  1. Log in as escenic on your assembly-host.

  2. Download the Poll distribution. If you have a multi-host installation with shared folders as described in the Escenic Content Engine Installation Guide, then it is a good idea to download the distribution to your shared /mnt/download folder:

    $ cd /mnt/download

    Otherwise, download it to some temporary location of your choice.

  3. If the folder /opt/escenic/engine/plugins does not already exist, create it:

    $ mkdir /opt/escenic/engine/plugins
  4. Unpack the Poll distribution file:

    $ cd /opt/escenic/engine/plugins
    $ unzip /mnt/download/

    This will result in the creation of an /opt/escenic/engine/plugins/poll folder.

  5. Log in as escenic on your assembly-host.

  6. Run the ece script to re-assemble your Content Engine applications.

    $ ece assemble

    This generates an EAR file (/var/cache/escenic/engine.ear) that you can deploy on all your engine-hosts.

  7. If you have a single-host installation, then skip this step.

    On each engine-host on which you wish to run Poll, copy /var/cache/escenic/engine.ear from the assembly-host. If you have installed an SSH server on the assembly-host and SSH clients on your engine-hosts, then you can do this as follows:

    $ scp -r escenic@assembly-host-ip-address:/var/cache/escenic/engine.ear /var/cache/escenic/ 

    where assembly-host-ip-address is the host name or IP address of your assembly-host.

  8. Deploy the EAR file and restart the Content Engine on each engine-host by entering:

    $ ece stop
    $ ece deploy
    $ ece start
