Started to write installation instructions for the Variant Search extension.

Installing the Variant Search extension

Installation and updating

  1. Download the latest varsearch-x.y.tar.gz file from the Variant Search main page.
  2. Unpack the downloaded file to a directory of your choice.
  3. Copy the varsearch.jar file to your BASE plug-ins directory. Look in your base.config file if you don't know where this is. There are not other configuration files.
  4. Log in to BASE as an administrator and go to the Administrate->Plug-ins & Extensions->Overview page.
  5. Run the installation wizard and select to install varsearch.jar.
  6. Refresh your menu entries with BASE -> Reload permissions
  7. Go to the Extensions -> Variant Search (admin) menu and then continue to the Installation wizard. It should display some warnings and error messages. Click on the Create missing items button to fix them.
  8. The installation is now complete, but before we can start searching the VCF files need to be indexed.
