Install ocsinventory-ng and glpi on FreeBSD

Recent search for finding solution for inventory computer in the school lead me to interesting url :

From their architecture page :

“OCS Inventory NG uses an agent, which runs the inventory on client computers, and a management server, which centralizes inventory results, allow viewing inventory results and creating deployment packages.”


Very interesting software. After think a little bit I decide to try to install it on one of FreeBSD jail.

(In case you have old FreeBSD iso, you can try different version that works).

Here’s the steps :

1. Install database server

cd /usr/ports/databases/mysql50-server/ && make install

3. Install logrotate

cd /usr/ports/sysutils/logrotate && make install

mkdir /etc/logrotate.d

mkdir /etc/logrotate.d/ocsinventory-NG

cd /usr/ports/net-mgmt/ocsinventory-ng/work/OCSNG_LINUX_SERVER_1.01


That step will initiate checking screen.
