Setting up a separate server testing development

Setting up a separate server testing development

Hi,

We want to set up a separate web server on a virtual machine to start testing development of our EMu websites under a drupal based cms and I want to know if I have to assign a dedicated EMu license to it.

If anyone knows if i do let me know

Many thanks

Sharon

Re: Setting up a separate server testing development

Hi Sharon

If you mean you want to start a VM with a web server and some pages that access a currently licenced EMu database then you wont need a new licence. If you mean you want to create a new test install of an EMu database on your VM then you will need to obtain at least one licence from KE to run the test EMu database. If you can spare any licences on your production server you might be able to get KE to move one or two of these to your test environment. I'd contact KE and see what they can do for you.

Is anyone else out there integrating EMu (specifically web 5) with Drupal? We were in the planning stages when our web developer accepted a position elsewhere. This is our #1 priority when we find a replacement, so I'd be interested to hear if anyone else has made progress with this.

Jana,

My institution will be integrating our EMu installation with Drupal 6 this summer (starting very soon) and I'm one of the web developers who will be working on it. Were there any potential roadblocks that you had identified or were worried about?

No specific problems; we were just planning to roll this project into a larger upgrade of the site to Drupal 7. Our major hurdle at this point is being between developers.

Wondering though, how long your integration with Drupal will take total? We're having a hard time estimating - 6 months? A year?

P.S. Kyle - which institution?

Re: Setting up a separate server testing development

I guess it depends on the complexity of your integration. Assuming that, in essence, you are just forming queries and formatting the resultant records and record sets in different ways, I would say that 6 months would be quite enough time. Given that it will be your web developer's top priority, it seems quite likely that it would take even less time. I believe that our plan is to have the bulk (if not all) of the work done by the end of the summer, which is a bit less than three months away.

The Field Museum.

To be clear, I'm just talking about the integration of the Collections portion of the site with Drupal and EMu, not the site as a whole.

Re: Setting up a separate server testing development

Right. We were figuring a year for site upgrade plus integration of Emu web 5.

Thanks Kyle! If anyone else has any insights, feel free to chime in. Or email me offlist, jana.hill@cartermuseum.org.
