Services on this Blade

  • Mapbender
  • PostgreSQL/PostGIS


  • every Mapbender version is presented on this server
    • if you need root access to the demo mapbender ask the participants (see above)
  • the home for the Mapbender packages is:
  • the update of the mapbender version is done by svn
  • we offer a portal function so user can login and try the applications
  • as adminstrative database we use PostgreSQl/PostGIS


  • we added an ALIAS for each Mapbender versions:
  • /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

How to setup the current mapbender version

directory and svn checkout

cd /var/www/html/mapbender
sudo bash
mkdir mapbender_2.5
svn co /var/www/html/mapbender/mapbender_2.5/

-- for update use: svn up /var/www/html/mapbender/mapbender_2.5/
chown wwwrun /var/www/html/mapbender/mapbender_2.5/log
chown wwwrun /var/www/html/mapbender/mapbender_2.5/http/tmp
rm -r /var/www/html/mapbender/mapbender_2.5/http/tools

add the alias to Apache httpd.conf

vi /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
Alias /mapbender_2.5      /var/www/html/mapbender/mapbender_2.5/http/

restart Apache

/usr/sbin/apachectl configtest
/usr/sbin/apachectl graceful

create mapbender.conf and configure it

 cp /var/www/html/mapbender/mapbender_2.5/mapbender.conf-dist  /var/www/html/mapbender/mapbender_2.5/mapbender.conf
  • if possible use the Mapbender database which is already in use with the older Mapbender Verson
  • vor Mapbender 2.5 I (AE) had to create a new Mapbender database (mapbender_2.5)

create the symbolic link current_release with ln -s ...

  • drop current symbolic link
rm /var/www/html/mapbender/current_release
  • create it again with path to actual mapbender version
ln -s /var/www/html/mapbender/mapbender_2.5 /var/www/html/mapbender/current_release
