Installing a gLite ApelBox

From Gridkaschool

The ApelBox is installable via yum. The necessary gLite yum repositories are available at The required repositories are:


The repository files have to be stored in directory /etc/yum.repos.d/:

cd /etc/yum.repos.d
wget -P /etc/yum.repos.d/
wget -P /etc/yum.repos.d/

Installing the packages

Now the gLite software has to be installed.

yum install glite-APEL
yum install lcg-CA

Due to a bug ( the fetch-crl package is not included in the configured repositories for gLite APEL. Please install manually fetch-crl that can be downloaded from the following location: 

To do so

cd ~
yum localinstall fetch-crl-2.7.0-2.noarch.rpm

We will use a MySQL database on the ApelNode to store the accounting information. Therefore you need to install the mysql-server package:

yum install mysql-server

Proceed to the ApelBox Configuration
