Status : Draft


Melalui pip 

Install dengan pip masih gagal.

Melalui Git Repository

Solusi, uninstall kemudian install kembali redis dan hiredis :

sudo -H  pip uninstall redis
sudo -H  pip uninstall hiredis
sudo -H  pip install redis
sudo -H  pip install hiredis

Jalankan perintah :

fab setup_deps

Jika muncul error :

Error: Cannot find module 'findup-sync'

indico>>sudo rm node_modules/findup-sync
indico>>sudo npm install -g grunt-cli

Muncul error :

Fatal error: local() encountered an error (return code 1) while executing 'npm install'


Error ini sepertinya akibat tidak menggunakan phantojs terbaru, setelah menginstall phantomjs terbaru (2.1.1) error ini tidak terjadi. 

sudo apt-get remove --purge  phantomjs
sudo apt-get install  phantomjs

Lalu jalankan :

sudo python install

Jika ingin setup development environtment untuk indico, bisa menjalankan juga :

sudo python develop_config

Lalu :

sudo indico_initial_setup

Setelah selesai, akan ada informasi :

Indico has been installed correctly.

    indico.conf:      /opt/indico/etc/indico.conf

    BinDir:           /opt/indico/bin
    DocumentationDir: /opt/indico/doc
    ConfigurationDir: /opt/indico/etc
    HtdocsDir:        /opt/indico/htdocs

For information on how to configure Apache HTTPD, take a look at:

Please do not forget to start the Celery worker in order to use background tasks
such as event reminders and periodic cleanups. You can run it using this command:
$ indico celery worker -B

If you are running ZODB on this host:
 - Review /opt/indico/etc/zodb.conf and /opt/indico/etc/zdctl.conf to make sure everything is ok.
 - To start the database run: zdaemon -C /opt/indico/etc/zdctl.conf start

Sesudah mensetup virtual host, dan merestart apache muncul error :

Ketika diperiksa ternyata symlink nya salah. Setelah diperbaiki, Alhamdulillah, bisa, berikut adalah konfigurasi virtual host yang digunakan untuk development :

Setelah restart Apache, masih muncul error :

Sepertinya, konfigurasinya belum diisi semua.

Lengkapi dulu konfigurasinya : /opt/indico/etc/indico.conf 

Populate Database Indico 

Populate database indico [2].

  1. Indico di CERN,
  2. Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory,


  1. Indico Documentation,
  2. Tips for developers,
  3. Indico’s documentation,


  1. Assalamu Alaikum wwb,
    Gimana lanjutannya Mas Wildan?

  2. Saya coba instalasi di Fedora 25, dimana konfigurasi httpd ada pada /etc/httpd/conf.d/

    Mas Wildan boleh kasih saran pengesetan indico.conf?
    Kurang lebih msalahnya ada pada bagian akhir sepertidibawah ini. Ada clue?

    Redirecting to /bin/systemctl restart httpd.service
    Job for httpd.service failed because the control process exited with error code.
    See "systemctl status httpd.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

  3. Coba jalankan :

    systemctl status httpd.service

    dan atau/journalctl -xe

    Setelah proses restart httpd, nanti akan terlihat errornya.
