RTFM is the FAQ Manager for RT.

To install it on Ubuntu with RT installed, you first need to download it from here. The latest version when I wrote this was 2.2.1.

Once you have it on the ubuntu server, untar the item (tar zxf RTFM...tar.gz) and change into that directory.

Now run the following command:

ln -s /usr/sbin/rt-setup-database /usr/local/share/request-tracker3.6/

Now run the following 3 commands in succession:

perl Makefile.PL
make install
make initdb

The last one will prompt you twice for the password for the rtuser which you should enter.

Now reload apache with

/etc/init.d/apache2/force-reload

RTFM will now be installed and available for use.
