Windows Server

Service version of Replikwando, which will copy a customers database to ISoft's server so their inventory can eventually be updated on

  1. Connect to server thru VNC
  2. Create Replikwando account on Replikwando Records - Add New Company website
    Update Kungfu to include the new HTP account informatoin
  3. Download Replikwando Install pack from
  4. Copy SSL Certificates over to %PROGRAMFILES%\Isoft Data Systems\Certificates
    SSL Certs can be found in <svndir>\itrack2\trunk\Certificates\<companyname>-cert. If certs don't exist for the company, ask Dayton or Brian to generate them.
  5. Edit Replication.ini file
    1. Check sqlyog that the following matches the clients:
      Use ITEncrypter Frontend.exe to generate an encrypted username and password (\\file\ITRACK\Tech Support\Replikwando\Replikwando Install Pack\ITEncrypter Frontend.exe)
      binlogpath - Should be the path to their MySQL 'data' directory
      mysqlbinpath - Should be the path to their MySQL 'bin' directory
    2. Set Username and Password for [toDatabase] with same account info setup on Replikwando Records
      Use Frontend to convert pass to hash
      Add "Z" in front of hash
    3. Set database = product code (Company product code can be found in their companyinfo table. If one doesn't exist there, you can create a new one when you create their account.)
    4. [ssl]
      Set path = path to the folder where the SSL Certificates are stored
      Set prefix = company name
      Copy company name from certs, everything before -cert
      Ex. for ABC-Company-cert prefix=ABC-Company
    5. [heartbeat]
      Set the Process ID (for heartbeat) to the company's product code
    6. Set use_compression=True if the connection uses the internet, False if it's on the local network (or same machine)
  6. Edit my.ini file (default location %PROGRAMFILES%\MySQL\MySQL server 5.1\my.ini)
    1. Add the following under [mysqld]:
  7. Stop and Start the MySQL service
    1. Restart service in control panel -> Admin tools -> services
    2. in command prompt:
      net stop mysql
      net start mysql
  8. Set up Task Schedule to run Replikwando once after business hours.
    Only need to set up schedule if installing during business hours so that you don't lock up clients database
  9. Tell Brian user and Product code so he can set up triggers on
  • Note: Replikwando will lock up the entire database during the initial push, so it may be a good idea to run it at the end of the work day.

Linux Sever

Replikwando on Linux using Wine

  1. Connect to the customer's server using sftp (it's a *nix app, may need to install Cygwin-X)
    Do `put “Replikwando with Wine.tar.gz” .` to put the install files on their server
    You can also put the customer's key and cert now, as well
  2. Connect to the customer's server using SSH/putty
    Extract the files using `tar -zxf “Repikwando with Wine.tar.gz”`
    If that fails, use `gunzip “Replikwando with Wine.tar.gz”`, `tar -xf “Replikwando with Wine.tar”
  3. You will now have two new files in your directory, and ISoft/*
    Type ./
    Depending on the system configuration, several prompts may show up. Just read them and follow what they tell you to do.
    The script will tell you when it is done running.
  4. Navigate to ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Replikwando
    This directory will contain the error logs, sqlite file, and so on.
    Put in the required values for replication.ini (see above)
  5. Type ~/ to start Replikwando for the first time.
    Confirm that Replikwando is running correctly using the error logs here
    Type `vi <filename>` to open the file in an editor to read it. Type :q<enter> to quit.
  6. To connect to the mysql server, type `mysql -utestuser -hlocalhost -p`
    You'll have to type a 'use <database>' command before running queries
  7. Once Replikwando is confirmed running, type `sudo vi /etc/rc.local` and place the following lines just above the last line that says 'exit 0':
  8. start replikwando
  9. sudo -H -u isoft /home/isoft/
  10. Done!

  • Some quick tips:

Quick linux commands:

ls : shows you what is in the directory
sudo : lets you run powerful & dangerous commands (requires password)
cd : change directory
rm : deletes a file (use rm -r to delete a folder)
deletes cannot be undone!
You can't open Replikwando's UI to see if it's pushing data, so you have to rely on the error logs and test database changes.
All normal Replikwando caveats apply (initial push db lock, query error logs, so on so forth)

After the initial push, be sure to copy over functions and stored procedures as necessary, as replikwando doesn't do this automatically.
