Hi all (first post - be gentle :D)
I am trying to install AceDB locally - on a machine where I am not root, but
I can compile and run programmes and I have MySQL running on this machine and
can create and install databases. I can also either install or request to have installed
My understanding is that AceDB is the core of Wormbase with MySQL databases
“hanging off” the AceDB core. I compiled and ran AceDB with the demo (see below
I went to ftp://ftp.sanger.ac.uk/pub/wormbase/releases/WS239/acedb/ and downloaded
the datafiles (well, a couple) checked them and found that some were binaries after tar -zxvf.
My understanding is that (some of) these are dumps of MySQL databases for each species present in
the data files. What I would like are instructions on how to load what and where.
I would also like to run the full AceDB database/system (which doesn’t appear to be included
in the distro?) against these MySQL databases. Exhaustive seaching has revealed this
But the critical section contains this:
Installing Databases NOT DONE Primary database (AceDB)
Can anyone point me to a document telling what to do with what files so that
I may start to use AceDB?
Any other useful material appreciated.
========== Compiling and running AceDB =============
I downloaded the latest monthly build of AceDB, ran make (ACEDB_MACHINE=LINUX_64)
and that went fine - a few warnings. Got bin.LINUX_64 in my acedb directory.
Ran xace from the command line and was told that I would have to run where there
was a database and wspec file. Searched for these and found them in wdemo - ran
xace …/wdemo and was warned about a password file - put my username in there
and was asked if I’d like to create the database. I said yes and was able to run
the interface against the sample.
