Installing Open Food Network online marketplace for local food on Ubuntu Linux

OFN Homepage

The Open Food Network is an online marketplace for local food. It enables a network of independent online food stores that connect farmers and food hubs (including coops, online farmers’ markets, independent food businesses etc); with individuals and local businesses. It gives farmers and food hubs an easier and fairer way to distribute their food.

Following steps will help to install this software and get it running on ubuntu Linux ( You can customise it by changing as per your server )

$ sudo apt-get install pgadmin3
pgadmin3 is already the newest version.

To start off, we need to change the PostgreSQL postgres user password; we will not be able to access the server otherwise. As the “postgres” Linux user, we will execute the psql command.

$ sudo -u postgres psql postgres
psql (9.3.4, server 9.1.11)
Type “help” for help.
postgres=#

Set a password for the “postgres” database role using the command:

postgres=# \password postgres
Enter new password:
Enter it again:

and give your password when prompted. ( we set password to “ofn”, you can use any ) The password text will be hidden from the console for security purposes.
Type Control+D to exit the posgreSQL prompt.
postgres=# \q

create yourself a database account (which is in this case also a database superuser) with the some name ( in our case its “ofn_user” is username, ou can replace with any name below ) and then create a password for the user:
$ sudo -u postgres createuser –superuser ofn_user

$ sudo -u postgres psql
psql (9.3.4, server 9.1.11)
Type “help” for help.

postgres=#

postgres=# \password ofn_user
Enter new password:
Enter it again:

( note: ou can user any password, in our case, we set to “ofn )

Type Control+D to exit the posgreSQL prompt.
postgres=# \q

use your new superuser privileges granted above to create a database ( in our base database name is set to ofn_db )
$ sudo -u postgres createdb ofn_db

$ bundle install

You may need to type “sudo” password during above install.

Create databases
$ sudo -u postgres createdb ofn_test
$ sudo -u postgres createdb ofn_dev
$ sudo -u postgres createdb ofn_prod
