How to Install and Update PMIS Manual with Sphinx


The server is used for testing and building the manual.

Create and Build the Manual

From the server 121 go to the home directory:

> cd ~

Create the folder that will contain the manual:

> mkdir rwjeju-manual

Copy one of the manual already present:

> cd ~
> cp -R pmis-manual/* rwjeju-manual

Now the new manual is ready to be built. Type the following to build the manual:

> cd rwjeju-manual
> cd doc_ko/setup
> ./ build

Doc folder: ../
Python env folder: python
Package manager: apt-get
Current folder: /home/sangah/rwjeju-manual/doc/setup
Build finished. The HTML pages are in _build/html.
Deactivating Python environment...
Script terminated.

If the following output come out the process is complete and ready to be used and tested.

But if you have the following result:

Current folder: /home/sangah/rwjeju-manual/doc/setup
Activating Python environment...
./ 줄 108: python/bin/activate: 그런 파일이나 디렉터리가 없습니다

you need to install python environment first.

To install the python environment type the following from the setup folder:

> ./ install

Environment installed, documentation ready to build!

After you receive the following result and the environment is installed you can type the previous command to build the manual.

The manual will be built in the folder _build/html, type the following and take a look inside the folder:

> cd ~
> cd rwjeju-manual/doc_ko/_build/html

To use the manual and test it apache need to be configured first.:

> cd /etc/apache2/sites-available
> vi pmis-manual.conf

You need to edit the pmis-manual.conf. Just add the following settings to the file:

Alias /ko/rwjj-manual /home/sangah/rwjeju-manual/doc_ko/_build/html

<Directory /home/sangah/rwjeju-manual/doc_ko/_build/html >
Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
Require all granted

Reload the apache service:

> sudo service apache2 reload

You need to add these lines for every language you need. After you reload the apache conf, the manual will be accessible from the url

Edit and Test the Manual

The manual will be edited on a local computer and deployed on the server for the building process. The folder that need to be used is in the SVN inside the folder STND_PMIS_util under the name new-manual.


Give the folder to the people that will make the manual!

Befire doing that you need to edit the following files:


Change the two variables inside as needed:

SET MANUAL_HOME=/home/sangah/rwjeju-manual

For every language just make a copy of these two files and change the two variables accordingly. For the japanese version:


SET MANUAL_HOME=/home/sangah/rwjeju-manual

The people who make the manual will execute one of these files to deploy the manual on the server and build it.

Save the Manual on the SVN

When the editor has finished to edit the manual, it should be saved on our SVN.

  1. First download on your computer the folder STND_PMIS_util from the SVN.

  2. Open the server with WinSCP and go to the folder of the manual.

  3. Make a new folder inside STND_PMIS_util. For example rwjj-manual.

  4. You should have a filter with the following exceptions set, in order to copy only the required files.

  5. Copy all the doc folders in your new local folder rwjj-manual. Make sure the options are set correctly.

  6. Commit and you are done.
