Running Pootle managment commands

There are management commands for Pootle which might be useful at some point. However, since we are using a preconfigured Bitnami appliance, running any of them requires a few steps of preparation.

  1. Depending on the planned operations, it might be wise to stop the whole stack (Apache, MySQL and Pootle) beforehand. This is archived by running:
    sudo /opt/bitnami/ stop
    Likewise the following will start it up again afterwards:
    sudo /opt/bitnami/ start
  2. Set up the environment as follows:
    cd /opt/bitnami
    sudo ./use_pootle
  3. Run Pootle commands like this:
    pootle help

Edited by Okal - The use_pootle script does the environment setup now.
