How To: Create A Local Yum Repository For Interset 5.4 Installation

In order to create a mirror of the repository required for Interset 5.4 installation, simply download and extract the repo54.tgz file from (contact Interset Support for required access credentials). 

This file should be extracted to the root level of your repository (e.g. /var/www/html/).

If you do not already have a repository configured, you can configure the httpd service on any machine to act as one.

Note: We recommend that this not be done on the same machine as Interset Reporting be installed on to avoid port conflicts.

  1. Download the tarball noted above
  2. Extract the tarball to /var/www/html and ensure that all files/directories are owned by apache:hadoop
  3. Install httpd (Apache web server) if not installed - sudo yum install httpd -y
  4. Modify /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf to include the follow values in the <Directory "/var/www/html"> definition:
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride All
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

    Note: These will allow for anonymous access and directory browsing of the root level of the repository.
  5. Run a config test to ensure that the config is working properly by executing apachectl configtest. If the resulting value is "Syntax OK" continue, otherwise correct the issues identified.
  6. Restart httpd by running sudo service httpd restart.
  7. Confirm that you can access the repository by hitting http://<repository_server> in a web browser.
