How to install Funambol 10 on Debian Wheezy

In this post we will cover how to install Funambol 10.0.3 on Debian Wheezy server.

First of all, we need to install Java jdk on server:

$ apt-get install default-jdk

Then, let’s create a folder to download and uncompress Funambol (at the moment, at version 10.0.3):

$ mkdir -p /opt/Funambol
$ cd /opt/Funambol
$ wget -c http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/funambol/bundle/v10/funambol-10.0.3-x64.bin
$ chmod +x funambol-10.0.3-x64.bin
$ ./funambol-10.0.3-x64.bin

Now, we need a specific user to make Funambol run. So let’s create a group called funambol and a user also called funambol with /opt/Funambol as home folder:

$ groupadd funambol
$ useradd -g funambol -m -d /opt/Funambol -s /bin/sh funambol
$ chown funambol:funambol -fR /opt/Funambol

If always goes well, browsing at http://localhost:8080/ we should see a web demo in which test contacts and calendars.

At this point, Funambol is ready to work, but we want be able start and stop it as a system service. So, let’s create and edit file /etc/init.d/funambol:

$ vi /etc/init.d/funambol

and put following code as content (based on http://www.deec.it/2009/09/03/installare-funambol-su-debian/):

[code language=”bash”]

#!/bin/sh

cd `dirname $0`
FUNAMBOL_HOME=`(cd /opt/Funambol ; pwd)`
DS_SERVER_HOME=$FUNAMBOL_HOME/ds-server

if [ ! -d $FUNAMBOL_HOME/config ]; then
#
# maybe we are in Funambol/tool/bin
#
FUNAMBOL_HOME=$FUNAMBOL_HOME/..
DS_SERVER_HOME=$FUNAMBOL_HOME/ds-server
fi

# Setting the JAVA_HOME to the JRE in the bundle if not set or if not correctly set
if [ -z "$JAVA_HOME" ]; then
export JAVA_HOME=$FUNAMBOL_HOME/tools/jre-1.5.0/jre
else
if [ ! -f "$JAVA_HOME/bin/java" ]; then
export JAVA_HOME=$FUNAMBOL_HOME/tools/jre-1.5.0/jre
fi
fi

if [ -z "$JAVA_HOME" ]; then
echo “Please, set JAVA_HOME before running this script.”
exit 1
fi

if [ ! -f "$JAVA_HOME/bin/java" ]
then
echo “Please set JAVA_HOME to the path of a valid jre.”
exit;
fi

export J2EE_HOME=${FUNAMBOL_HOME}/tools/tomcat
export CATALINA_HOME=${FUNAMBOL_HOME}/tools/tomcat

cd ${FUNAMBOL_HOME}

export LANG=en_US.utf-8

cd ${J2EE_HOME}/bin

COMED=true

case $1 in
start)

if [ "$COMED" = "true" ] ; then
#
# Run Hypersonic
#
sh $FUNAMBOL_HOME/bin/hypersonic start > /dev/null
fi

#
# Run CTP Server
#
sh $FUNAMBOL_HOME/bin/ctp-server start > /dev/null

#
# Run DS Server
#
sh $FUNAMBOL_HOME/bin/funambol-server start > /dev/null

#
# Run Inbox Listener
#
sh $FUNAMBOL_HOME/bin/inbox-listener start > /dev/null

#
# Run Pim Listener
#
sh $FUNAMBOL_HOME/bin/pim-listener start > /dev/null
;;
stop)
#
# Shutdown Inbox Listener
#
sh $FUNAMBOL_HOME/bin/inbox-listener stop > /dev/null

#
# Shutdown Pim Listener
#
sh $FUNAMBOL_HOME/bin/pim-listener stop > /dev/null

#
# Shutdown Tomcat
#
sh $FUNAMBOL_HOME/bin/funambol-server stop > /dev/null

#
# Shutdown CTP Server
#
sh $FUNAMBOL_HOME/bin/ctp-server stop > /dev/null

if [ "$COMED" = "true" ] ; then
#
# Shutdown Hypersonic
#
sh $FUNAMBOL_HOME/bin/hypersonic stop > /dev/null
fi
;;
license)
less “${FUNAMBOL_HOME}/LICENSE.txt”
;;
*)
echo “usage: $0 [start|stop|license]”
;;
esac

[/code]

And finally let’s update rc:

$ update-rc.d funambol defaults

At this point, we can start and stop Funambol using following commands:

$ /etc/init.d/funambol start
$ /etc/init.d/funambol stop

Now we have two ways to configure Funambol:

  1. editing /opt/Funambol/config/Funambol.xml with our favorite editor or
  2. using Funambol Administration tool available forLinux or Windows.

    Ehm… if you don’t want to be beaten by “insserv” (or you don’t want to uninstall it), it can be better to enter something like this informations at the beginning of the script /etc/init.d/funambol :

    #!/bin/sh
    ### BEGIN INIT INFO
    # Provides: funambol
    # Required-Start: $local_fs $network $time $remote_fs
    # Required-Stop: $local_fs $time $remote_fs
    # Default-Start: 2 3 4 5
    # Default-Stop: 0 1 6
    # Short-Description: Funambol service
    # Description: This file manages funambol service status and must be
    # placed in /etc/init.d.
    ### END INIT INFO

    Tanks to Valerio for his good job.
    Molte grazie.
