More About RTIR


Perl prerequisites

Before starting RTIR installation, make sure your system has the following Perl packages installed:

Version.pm : libsort-versions-perl

YAML.pm : libconfig-yaml-perl

These dependencies are not checked during installation and abort it.

RTIR Installation

Installation is a fairly straightforward process (this process assumes that you already have a fully functional instance of RTFM2.4.1 or newer installed and that you are not upgrading a previous installation of RTIR) :

cd /usr/local/src

wget http://download.bestpractical.com/pub/rt/release/RT-IR-2.4.1.tar.gz
tar xvzf RT-IR-2.4.1.tar.gz
cd RT-IR-2.4.1
perl Makefile.PL
make install
make initdb

Then edit your RT_Config (or RT_SiteConfig) to replace the line:

Set(@Plugins, qw(RT::FM));


Set(@Plugins, 'RT::FM', 'RT::IR');

Finally, restart your webserver:

/etc/init.d/httpd stop

/etc/init.d/httpd start
