This tutorial assumes you are installing on a RHEL, CentOS, or equivalent system, and that you compiled OMD on the system itself (so there shouldn't be dependency problems).

RPM Install

Taking the RPM you created in OMDcompile, you now want to install it with, for example:

yum localinstall omd-0.50-rh60-25.x86_64.rpm

Create Site

First, select a site name. The site name will exist both as a local user/group entry in your /etc/passwd && /etc/group files, and it will also be part of the URL when pulling up the site, e.g: http://localhost/sitename

omd create sitename

Initial Configuration

Begin by becoming the 'sitename' user:

su - sitename

Make note of certain environmental variables:

echo $OMD_ROOT
