Install Ice 3.4 on CentOS 5

Ice 3.4 is now in Beta with quite a bit of changes in the PHP api. Here is a guide howto install Ice with PHP bindings on a CentOS 5 machine and getting the weblist.php example distributed with murmur to work.

cd /etc/yum.repos.d/

Edit the zeroc-ice.repo to look like this:

name=Ice 3.4b for RHEL $releasever - $basearch

This way the repo is not enabled by default. My flavor of CentOS didn't have $releasever set so I changed the baseurl to a static version 5.

yum --enable zeroc-ice install ice-php ice-php-devel
/etc/init.d/httpd graceful

Now go the murmur folder and locate


Edit weblist.php:



replace with

require 'Ice.php';
require 'Murmur.php';
$ICE = Ice_initialize();

Move weblist.php and Murmur.php to your web space and access weblist.php

As of now the PHP implementation does not implement the Implicit Context, so you can't use murmur with a secret. When ZeroC decides to implement it you should be able to do something like this:

$ICE->getImplicitContext('secret', 'passphrase');

Getting Glacier to work

Glacier2 is a Ice routing and firewall utility, and allows you to securely run the server on one machine and murmur on another. Note that if both server and client are on a secure LAN, you can just use iptables to protect the Ice port, which is a lot easier than setting up Glacier2. Also, since Mumble 1.2.2 you can set an icesecret in your murmur.ini and use it as a password. This is a lot easier to set up and use than Glacier2.

yum  install ice-servers

You will need an extra require:

require 'Glacier2.php';

Then just follow the guide Ice#Using_Glacier2.
