Karma - Quickstart Guide


You can get started quickly and easily with karma by following these directions.


o Edit the karma.conf file
o Make sure your database is running, and from the karma directory issue this command:

$ bin/karmactl -s

o Open the file doc_root/index.html with a browser (you don't necessarily need a webserver at all).

If it isn't obvious already, you have to have Oracle, DBI, DBD-Oracle and Perl installed for everything to work. You'll also need Mail::Send which comes with the MailTools module.
