Step-by-Step Instructions to Install ShakeCast on Your System
After completing the ShakeCast database creation and data population, a brief dialog confirms the last step of the installation process.
After rebooting the system, you can access the ShakeCast web interface at
Username = scadmin
Password = scadmin
A few final configuration steps are required.
1. Notification. The file c:\shakecast\sc\conf\sc.conf contains a "Notification" section that looks like:
# Notification Configuration <Notification> From firstname.lastname@example.org EnvelopeFrom email@example.com SmtpServer smtp.example.com DefaultEmailTemplate default.txt DefaultScriptTemplate default.pl # Username username # Password password </Notification>
Uncomment and edit the "Username" and "Password" fields if authentication is required for your SMTP server.
2. RSS Daemon. The file c:\shakecast\sc\conf\sc.conf contains a "RSS" daemon section that looks like:
# RSS Daemon configuration <rss> AUTOSTART 1 # the LOG & LOGGING setting only applies to messages logged out of # GenericDaemon; other messages from polld itself are controlled by the # settings of LogLevel and LogFile in the system-wide configuration above LOG c:/shakecast/sc/logs/sc.log LOGGING 1 MSGLEVEL 2 POLL 60 PORT 53458 PROMPT rssd> SERVICE_NAME rssd SERVICE_TITLE ShakeCast RSS Daemon SPOLL 10 REGION SC CI NC NN # TIME_WINDOW 30 </rss>
Modify the "REGION" (to download ShakeMaps only from selected regions), the "POLL" (polling interval in seconds), and the "TIME_WINDOW" (in days for triggering ShakeCast processing).
Available ShakeMap regions are:
Global & US regions not covered by above networks (NEIC ShakeMap)
All the above
