Re: Groups And Roles ? It Can work together in mojoportal ?

pg_groups sounds like a database role, it would have nothing to do with the users of your site, it would only have to do with the user in your connection string for the database.

There is no corresondence between the users in the site mp_user table and users with opermission in the db. It is an application connection string so the whole application runs in the context of a single db user with a name and password in the connection string.

The roles in mojoportal enforce permissions to view and edit content in mojoportal. To add a user to a role go to the Member List page and click the gear next to the user name and at the bottom of the page you can see the roles the user is in and you can add more roles.

Re: Groups And Roles ? It Can work together in mojoportal ?

It looks like a mono bug I've seen before but its probably fixed in the latest mono code. My demo site is using mono built from the Subversion repository. I haven't tested the release yet but it looks like a bug I've seen before. I'm working on a tutorial for building mono from svn source code. The tutorial should be ready this weekend. Then you could try updating your mono and see if it fixes it.

Re: Groups And Roles ? It Can work together in mojoportal ?

Hello Joe.

So good your tutorial about installing mono from source. About that, I have two questions:

1. What I have to do if I have installed mono 1.1.10 ?, what going on about my .conf apache for example?.
2. When you say ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr ; this '/usr' is only '/usr' or I have to change for '/usr/mynameusr' for example?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Groups And Roles ? It Can work together in mojoportal ?

No do it exactly as I have shown. since you already have mono installed this will install the version from source control in a different location. /usr is a common place to install software compiled from source.

In the next article you will see how you can configure your apache virtual host to use the version you compiled instead of the version installed before from packages.
