Installation of NGL3

1. Download NGL3 from this link. If you have already downloaded this file in the Download page, skip this step. 2. This will download a file InstallNGL303.zip. Extract this file, for this example we have extracted the zip file into C: Drive. In C: Drive you will now see a directory name "InstallNGL303". The contents of this directory. You may extract the zip file into any directory. 3. Now go into C:/InstallNGL303/apache-ant-1.8.1/bin directory. In this directory you will find a file config.ini. open this file using Wordpad or Notepad. Edit the parameters as explained below. installation.directory=C:/NGL3 This means that the NGL installation will be made in the directory C:/NGL3 you may give choose any other directory as you wish. But for this example we will choose this directory. ServerIPAddress=localhost The IPAddress of the computer which is running Postgresql database. By default leave it as localhost. It means that Postgresql database server is running on this system itself. DatabasePort=5432 The Port on which your Postgresql Server is running. In most of the cases this port number is 5432. DefaultDatabase=postgres DatabaseUserName=postgres DatabasePassword=newgenlib Leave this parameters as it is. Do not make any changes here. source.location=D:/InstallNGL3.0 This is the location which has NGL3.0 Installation files. Refer to Point 2. restore.database=original Leave this parameter as it is. NewGenLib.Database=newgenlib Since the earlier version of NGL is already running it means that you have a postgresql database running on the server. Enter the name of the database that is holding NewGenLib Schema and data. NewGenLib.Database.UserName=postgres The name of the database user. NewGenLib.Database.Password=newgenlib The name of the database password. Save the changes made to config.ini 4. Go to C:/InstallNGL303 and Double click on Upgrade batch file. This will Open command prompt and execute the scripts as shown below 5. Go to C:/NGL3/apache-tomcat-6.0.32/bin directory. You can see a file RunNGL3Server batch file. This batch file when executed will run the apache-tomcat Server with NGL Application. Since you have use this batch file frequently let us create a shortcut of this file on the desktop. Right click on RunNGL3Server and Send to ---> Desktop (Create Shortcut) as shown below. A shortcut will be created on your desktop as shown below 6. Double click on the Shortcut to start NGL Server. The NGL Server (apache-tomcat) will start. It will take some time to initialize. Finally you will get a message as shown below. The time taken for server to initialize will change system to system.

Go D:/InstallNGL3.0 directory you will find a file BuildIndex batch file. Double click on this file. This will create Bibliographic and Authority data Index.
