Yothalot is distributed in binary form for a number of Linux distributions. The best way to download Yothalot is to add the Copernica repository (Copernica is the company that develops Yothalot) to the list of sources used by your "apt-get" or "yum" package manager. After doing this, you can use the regular software update tools to stay up to date with the latest version of Yothalot.
Installing on Debian/Ubuntu based systems
We have two repositories, one for newer Ubuntu and Debian versions (Ubuntu 12.04 and up, and Debian version 8 and higher), and a repository for the older Debian 6 and Debian 7 versions.
|Ubuntu 12.04 and up||deb http://packages.copernica.com/debian stable main|
|Debian 8 and up||deb http://packages.copernica.com/debian stable main|
|Debian 6 and Debian 7||deb http://packages.copernica.com/debian legacy main|
You can enter the following instructions to add our repository to your software list, and to download and install Yothalot.
wget -O- http://packages.copernica.com/copernica.key | sudo apt-key add - echo "deb http://packages.copernica.com/debian stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/copernica.list sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install yothalot
Watch out: if you're on Debian 6 or Debian 7, make sure you replace the word "stable" with "legacy"!
Installing on Red Hat based systems
For Red Had based systems there are two repositories as well, one for the latest versions of these systems, and one for older releases.
|CentOS 7+, Red Hat 7+, Fedora 22+||http://packages.copernica.com/rpm/copernica.repo|
|CentOS 6, Red Hat 6, Fedora 21||http://packages.copernica.com/rpm-legacy/copernica.repo|
To install Yothalot on a new version of CentOS, Red Hat or Fedora, enter the following instructions in your shell:
sudo wget http://packages.copernica.com/rpm/copernica.repo -O /etc/yum.repos.d/copernica.repo sudo yum update sudo yum install yothalot
Of course, if you're on an older system (CentOS 7, Red Hat 6 or Fedora 21), you should modify the repository URL to contain "rpm-legacy" instead of "rpm".
Once you've added the Copernica repository to the list of software sources, you can always get the latest stable version of Yothalot with the instructions "sudo apt-get install yothalot" for Debian/Ubuntu based systems or "sudo yum install yothalot" for Red Hat based systems. If you prefer an older version over the current stable one, or when you want to try the bleeding edge development version, you should append a version number.
sudo apt-get install yothalot-2.0 sudo apt-get install yothalot-dev
sudo yum install yothalot-2.0 sudo yum install yothalot-dev
The development version has a "-dev" postfix. This dev version is automatically recompiled every 24 hours and contains the latest fixes and changes. Although it is often not recommended to use it in production environments, it's a great way to keep an eye on Yothalot improvements.
Note that if you run a specific version of Yothalot, the location of the config file changes too. By default, Yothalot loads it configuration from "/etc/yothalot/config.txt", but if you install an explicit version the version number is included in the filename of the config file (for example "/etc/yothalot/config-2.0.txt" or "/etc/yothalot/config-dev.txt").
If you want to use Yothalot within your PHP application, you need download and install the Yothalot-PHP extension. You can fork the bleeding edge version via github, or you can download a stable version.
