Mambo 4.6.2 rpm - How to create RPM and add to application vault?

    We have some customers wanting to use Mambo 4.6.2. How do I add this to the plesk application vault? I believe I need to create an rpm of sort but wouldn't mind hearing if anyone has done this before or whether there's already a rpm for Mambo 4.6.2 out there somewhere.

    I've read the plesk literature (plesk application vault - development's guide) on how to create rpm and it doesn't look appear to be very easy.

    This is one I did for phpBB if you need a starting point.


    I'd say doing app vault rpms are bit more complex than a normal rpm, but not as complicated as something like a kernel package.

    Some dos and donts:

    Dont modify the original source tar.gz/tar.bz2 from the vendor. Use patches instead, it makes updating the package trivial later on.

    Avoid the Epoch field, use Release instead. Epochs can get pretty messy after a few updates.

    Hi atomicturtle,

    Thank you for your reply.

    I'll continue to plough through the plesk literature slowly and see what I come up with.
