-This tecnique aims to set a thorough Taler installation up on a
-machine whose nginx configuration is configured by config files
-from @indicateurl{https://git.taler.net/deployment.git/tree/etc/nginx}.
-
-This installation assumes that all the steps are run with @code{$HOME}
-as @code{$CWD}.
-
-The first step is to fetch the @cite{deployment} repository, which hosts all
-the needed scripts.
-
-@example
-# Adapt the repository's URI to your needs.
-$ git clone /var/git/deployment.git/
-@end example
-
-The next step is to fetch all the codebases from all the components.
-
-@example
-$ ./deployment/bootstrap-standalone
-@end example
-
-If the previous step succeeded, a file named @code{activate} should be now
-in the @code{$CWD}. It contains environmental definitions for @code{$PATH} and
-database names.
-
-@cartouche
-@quotation Note
-Please @emph{ignore} the output from the previous script when it succeeds,
-which is
-
-@quotation
-
-@example
-WARNING: enabling "trust" authentication for local connections
-You can change this by editing pg_hba.conf or using the option -A, or
---auth-local and --auth-host, the next time you run initdb.
-
-Success. You can now start the database server using:
-
-/usr/lib/postgresql/9.5/bin/pg_ctl -D talerdb -l logfile start
-@end example
-
-The reason is that this message is generated by Postgresql's utilities and
-you never need to start your database manually; it will be started by the
-init script that launches all the Taler processes.
-@end quotation
-@end quotation
-@end cartouche
-
-Now we need to compile and install all the downloaded codebases.
-
-@example
-# We first update `@w{`}$PATH`@w{`}, in order to make all the compilation
-# and configuration utilities available.
-$ source activate
-
-# Double check if the previous step worked: $PATH should
-# contain $HOME/local/bin.
-$ echo $PATH
-
-# The actual compilation:
-$ taler-deployment-build
-@end example
-
-The following step will generate config files for all the components.
-Please @strong{note} that although a default currency will be picked up by the
-script, it is possible to have a custom currency by setting the environment
-variable @code{TALER_CONFIG_CURRENCY} to the wanted currency, and then running
-the config generator.
-
-@example
-$ taler-deployment-config-generate
-@end example
-
-whereas the following one will place signatures inside wireformat JSON
-files.
-
-@example
-$ taler-deployment-config-sign
-@end example
-
-The next step is to generate @cite{signkeys} and @cite{denomkeys}.
-
-@example
-$ taler-deployment-keyup
-@end example
-
-@c An error of "invalid currency name" might be related to the current
-@c policy of 12-chars limit for currency names; which is likely going to
-@c be changed.
-
-It may be necessary to define database tables for the exchange. The
-following command does that.
-
-@example
-# Erase all the data!
-$ taler-exchange-dbinit -r
-@end example
-
-As of the merchant backend, it creates tables at launch time, so it is
-not required to define tables before launching it. @cite{However}, if some
-table's definition changed over the time, and there is a need to force
-a redefinition of tables, then the following command accomplishes that
-for the merchant:
-
-@example
-# Erase all the data!
-$ taler-merchant-dbinit -r
-@end example
-
-If all previous steps succeeded, it is now possible to launch all the
-processes. That is accomplished by the following command:

-$ taler-deployment-start

-
-This section describes how to upgrade the exchange deployment on the
-@url{taler.net} Web site. Here, the deployment scripts include a
-``stable'' setup at @url{demo.taler.net} and an ``experimental'' setup
-at @url{test.taler.net}. This section documents the steps for moving
-the ``experimental'' logic to the ``stable'' site. It is mostly
-useful for administrators of @url{taler.net}, but given that all of
-the configuration files are public, it may also make a good starting
-point for others.
-
-
-First, make sure that the deployment @emph{AND} the deployment scripts work on the @cite{test.taler.net} deployment.
-
-For all repositories that have a separate stable branch (currently exchange.git,
-merchant.git, merchant-frontends.git, bank.git, landing.git) do:
-
-@example
-$ cd $REPO
-$ git pull origin master stable
-$ git checkout stable
-
-# option a: resolve conflicts resulting from hotfixes
-$ git merge master
-$ ...
-
-# option b: force stable to master
-$ git update-ref refs/heads/stable master
-
-$ git push # possibly with --force
-
-# continue development
-$ git checkout master
-@end example
-
-Log into taler.net with the account that is @emph{not} active by looking
-at the @cite{sockets} symlink of the @cite{demo} account.
-
-The following instructions wipe out the old deployment completely.
-
-@example
-$ ls -l ~demo/sockets
-
-[...] sockets -> /home/demo-green/sockets/
-@end example
-
-In this case, @cite{demo-green} is the active deployment, and @cite{demo-blue} should be updated.
-After the update is over, the @cite{/home/demo/sockets} symlink will be pointed to @cite{demo-blue}.
-
-@example
-# Remove all existing files
-$ find $HOME -exec rm -fr @{@} \;
-
-$ git clone /var/git/deployment.git
-$ ./deployment/bootstrap-bluegreen demo
-
-# set environment appropriately
-$ . activate
-$ taler-deployment-build
-
-# upgrade the database! this
-# process depends on the specific version
-
-$ taler-deployment-start
-
-# look at the logs, verify that everything is okay
-@end example
-
-Now the symlink can be updated.
