Radiant CMS on IBM DB2 Express-C

Open in Dashboard

Published by IBM on Jan 28, 2011Revision: 4


About this template

Using this template you can create a Radiant CMS blog powered by Ruby on Rails and DB2, in a matter of minutes. This template installs everything that is required to have a fully functional Radiant CMS blog that works with DB2 on a micro Amazon instance (which is currently free for a year for new customers): * Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Server Edition (32-bit) * nginx + Passenger * Rails framework * IBM Ruby driver and Rails adapter for DB2 and IDS * IBM DB2 Express-C database server

A sample Radiant CMS blog will be available at the URL corresponding to your public DNS on the standard port 80. To customize it, append /admin to the URL and enter admin as the username, and radiant as the password.


If you wish to use this template server in production mode, we highly recommend that you: * Change the password for the Linux users db2inst1, dasusr1, db2fenc1 from password to more secure ones; * Update the /opt/www/blog/config/database.yml file with the password you just changed for the user db2inst1; * Change the Radiant CMS admin password from radiant to something much more secure.
