Quick Installation Guide

This is a guide for deploying repository on a single instance. For that we'll use Amazon EC2 Instance with Linux AMI 2015.03. Make sure that you opened 80, 22 and 3030 TCP ports, they will be used for Web access, SSH and to connect tv tuners.

  1. First, you'll need to install packets required for compilation, Apache and MySQL servers:
    sudo yum localinstall -y
    sudo yum install -y mysql-community-server
    sudo yum install -y git gcc mysql-devel httpd24 php56 php56-mysqlnd

    First two command will install MySQL server of 5.6 version as current Amazon repo has 5.1 or something which won't work with this repository

  2. Run MySQL server and run mysql_secure_installation to set root password and to remove the insecure features. Then make it run at each system boot
    sudo service mysqld start 
    sudo mysql_secure_installation
    sudo chkconfig mysqld on
  3. Download CCExtractor source code, compile and install it. The last command shall place ccextractor binary to /usr/bin/ directory
    git clone
    cd ~/ccextractor/linux
    sudo make install
  4. Then clone git repository, compile and install it
    git clone
    cd ccextractor-server/
    sudo make install
  5. Create repository database and add tables:
    mysql -uroot <<< "CREATE DATABASE cc";
    mysql -uroot cc < misc/tables.sql

    If you set root password for your database, make sure to set it using --password="pass" argument

  6. Install web pages by executing web/ script:
    cd web/
    sudo ./
  7. Edit /etc/ccr/db.ini config file to set data base user, and password. This setting will be used by server application
    db-user = "root"
    db-password = "pass"

    If you didn't set root password, leave db-password empty.

  8. Edit the following lines in /etc/httpd/conf.d/ccr.conf to set database user and password for web pages:
    SetEnv CC_DB_USER cc_ro
    SetEnv CC_DB_PASSWORD cc-read-only-user-password

    Set CC_DB_USER variable to your db user name, i.e. root and set password in CC_DB_PASSWORD. If your db user doesn't have any password, just remove this line.

  9. Edit /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and set DocumentRoot variable to “/var/www/public”. In two places in the file. I'll fix it later :)
  10. Start and enable Apache server:
    sudo service httpd start
    sudo chkconfig httpd on
  11. Start and enable repository server application:
    sudo service ccr start
    sudo chkconfig ccr on
  12. That's it. You can access CC Repository from web browser. To connect the tuner to it use CCExtractor with -sendto option. Servers will listen for connections on 3030 port. Received closed captions will be stored in /srv/archive/ directory.
