Configure OpenSRF for the Evergreen application

There are a number of example OpenSRF configuration files in /openils/conf/ that you can use as a template for your Evergreen installation. Issue the following commands as the opensrf Linux account:

cp -b /openils/conf/opensrf_core.xml.example /openils/conf/opensrf_core.xml
cp -b /openils/conf/opensrf.xml.example /openils/conf/opensrf.xml

When you installed OpenSRF, you created four Jabber users on two separate domains and edited the opensrf_core.xml file accordingly. Please refer back to the OpenSRF README and, as the opensrf Linux account, edit the Evergreen version of the opensrf_core.xml file using the same Jabber users and domains as you used while installing and testing OpenSRF.


The -b flag tells the cp command to create a backup version of the destination file. The backup version of the destination file has a tilde (~) appended to the file name, so if you have forgotten the Jabber users and domains, you can retrieve the settings from the backup version of the files., described in the following section, sets the database connection information in opensrf.xml for you.
