Get the source

It's time to download Diaspora! As your diaspora user run:

cd ~
git clone  git://github.com/diaspora/diaspora.git
cd diaspora

Don't miss the cd diaspora, all coming commands expect to be run from that directory!

Configuration

Copy files

cp config/database.yml.example config/database.yml
cp config/diaspora.yml.example config/diaspora.yml



Bundle

It's time to install the Ruby libraries required by Diaspora:

bundle install

This takes quite a while. You should get a green success message when it's finished, if that's no the case you should seek for help on the mailing list or the IRC channel.

Database setup

Double check your config/database.yml looks right and run:

bundle exec rake db:create db:schema:load


Start Diaspora

It's time to start Diaspora:

./script/server

In the most simple case you want to do this inside a screen or tmux session from which you can safely detach.
