updated deb package: nexus oss 1.9.2.3


If you are looking for the easiest way to get started with Nexus on an Ubuntu machine, run the following commands. I’ve just updated this package to install Nexus 1.9.2.3:

sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ lucid partner"
sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://build.discursive.com/apt/ lucid main"
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nexus-oss

Here’s what my package does: it drops Nexus 1.9.2.3 into /usr/local and puts the sonatype-work directory into /var/lib. It redirects log files to /var/log/nexus, and places the temporary files in /var/tmp/nexus. It depends upon (and installs) Apache 2 + the mod_proxy module. It enables the proxy and proxy_http modules and then drops an Apache configuration file with directives that expose Nexus via Apache on the path /nexus. It then adds Nexus as a service.
