The debian/sarge package for netjuke didn’t quite work out of the box and it was a little dated so I decided to install netjuke from source.
Dependancies — apt-get the debian packages for mysql-client, mysql-server and make sure php4 and php4-mysql are installed.
Be sure to follow the post-installation steps of php4 in /usr/share/doc/php4/README.Debian.gz.
In particular, un-comment the line:
LoadModule php4_module /usr/lib/apache/1.3/libphp4.so
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .phtml .php3
AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps
and add index.php to the line like this:
DirectoryIndex index.php index.phtml index.php3 index.html
Remember to restart apache (/etc/init.d/apache restart)
Now you need to create a database to hold the netjuke tables. If you
have an existing database and user, you can use that. I have fresh
MySQL install with no table nor any non-root database users, so I did
- By default debian’s MySQL server doesn’t listen on the network
port but netjuke wanted to connect that say, so edit /etc/mysql/my.cnf
to enable it by commenting out the skip-networking line and
restart MySQL (/etc/init.d/mysql restart)
- Check to see that it worked:
$ mysqladmin -u root password ‘sekert’
$ mysqladmin -u root -p create netjuke
$ mysql -u root -p mysql

Now you are ready to install netjuke.
Go to the top of the web space, by default on debian it is /var/www
and unpack netjuke (tar zxvf ~/ netjuke-1.0-rc2.tar.gz).
Now as the netjuke docs say, go to http://127.0.0.1/netjuk
and click through the GPL license to the installation page. My

heavily) it will offer to save inc-prefs.php. Copy that to
/var/www/netjuke/etc/ and you may need to set the privileges to the
web server can read the file
chmod 444 /var/www/netjuke/etc/inc-prefs.php
You are almost done, so take a look at http://localhost/netjuke and
log in and poke around some. Don’t worry that there aren’t any music
files there, that is next.
I keep my music files in /DATA/Music/ and didn’t want to copy them to
where netjuke wanted them (/var/www/netjuke/var/music), so I used
ln to make them available like this:
cp /var/www/netjuke/var/music/* /DATA/Music
rm -rf /var/www/netjuke/var/music
ln -s /DATA/Music /var/www/netjuke/var/music
Now back to netjuke’s web
interface to import the files. Follow the links Admin->Recursive
Audio File Finder->Start Scanning and then watch as the mp3/ogg/etc
files are found and added to the netjuke database. If you have a lot
(I have around 11G) you may need to import them a few at a time using
the Admin->Music Directory Browser route and bring in a few
directories at at time.
