Deploy production server on Ubuntu 14.04


  1. Setup deploy user
  2. Install Ruby
  3. Install MySQL
  4. Install Redis
  5. Install RabbitMQ
  6. Install Bitcoind
  7. Install Nginx with Passenger
  8. Install JavaScript Runtime
  9. Install ImageMagick
  10. Configure Peatio

1. Setup deploy user

Create (if it doesn’t exist) deploy user, and assign it to the sudo group:

sudo adduser deploy
sudo usermod -a -G sudo deploy

Re-login as deploy user

2. Install Ruby

Install the ruby build dependencies:

sudo apt-get install git curl zlib1g-dev build-essential \
  libssl-dev libreadline-dev libyaml-dev libsqlite3-dev sqlite3 \
  libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libffi-dev

Install rvm:

gpg --keyserver hkp://keys.gnupg.net \
    --recv-keys 409B6B1796C275462A1703113804BB82D39DC0E3 \

\curl -sSL https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable --ruby=2.2.8 --gems=rails

If you want to skip fetching documentation when installing gems, do the following:

echo "gem: --no-ri --no-rdoc" > ~/.gemrc

3. Install MySQL

sudo apt-get install mysql-server  mysql-client  libmysqlclient-dev

4. Install Redis

Be sure to install the latest stable Redis, as the package in the distro may be a bit old:

sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:rwky/redis
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install redis-server

5. Install RabbitMQ

Please follow instructions here: https://www.rabbitmq.com/install-debian.html

curl http://www.rabbitmq.com/rabbitmq-signing-key-public.asc | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-add-repository 'deb http://www.rabbitmq.com/debian/ trusty main'
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install rabbitmq-server

sudo rabbitmq-plugins enable rabbitmq_management
sudo service rabbitmq-server restart
wget http://localhost:15672/cli/rabbitmqadmin
chmod +x rabbitmqadmin
sudo mv rabbitmqadmin /usr/local/sbin

6. Install Bitcoind

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install bitcoind


mkdir -p ~/.bitcoin
touch ~/.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf
vim ~/.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf

Insert the following lines into the bitcoin.conf, and replce with your username and password.


# If run on the test network instead of the real bitcoin network

# You must set rpcuser and rpcpassword to secure the JSON-RPC api
# Please make rpcpassword to something secure, `5gKAgrJv8CQr2CGUhjVbBFLSj29HnE6YGXvfykHJzS3k` for example.
# Listen for JSON-RPC connections on <port> (default: 8332 or testnet: 18332)

# Notify when receiving coins
walletnotify=/usr/local/sbin/rabbitmqadmin publish routing_key=peatio.deposit.coin payload='{"txid":"%s", "channel_key":"satoshi"}'

Start bitcoin


7. Installing Nginx & Passenger

Install Phusion's PGP key to verify packages

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 561F9B9CAC40B2F7

Add HTTPS support to APT

sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https ca-certificates

Add the passenger repository. Note that this only works for Ubuntu 14.04. For other versions of Ubuntu, you have to add the appropriate repository according to Section 2.3.1 of this link.

sudo add-apt-repository 'deb https://oss-binaries.phusionpassenger.com/apt/passenger trusty main'
sudo apt-get update

Install nginx and passenger

sudo apt-get install nginx-extras passenger

Next, we need to update the Nginx configuration to point Passenger to the version of Ruby that we're using. You'll want to open up /etc/nginx/nginx.conf in your favorite editor,

sudo vim /etc/nginx/nginx.conf

find the following lines, and uncomment them:

include /etc/nginx/passenger.conf;

open the passenger.conf file:

sudo vim /etc/nginx/passenger.conf

update the second line to read:

passenger_ruby /home/deploy/.rbenv/shims/ruby;

8. Install JavaScript Runtime

A JavaScript Runtime is needed for Asset Pipeline to work. Any runtime will do but Node.js is recommended.

curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup | sudo bash -
sudo apt-get install nodejs

9. Install ImageMagick

sudo apt-get -y install imagemagick gsfonts

10. Setup production environment variable

echo "export RAILS_ENV=production" >> ~/.bashrc
source ~/.bashrc
Clone the Source
mkdir -p ~/peatio
git clone https://github.com/rubykube/peatio.git ~/peatio/current
cd peatio/current

# Install dependency gems
bundle install --without development test --path vendor/bundle
Configure Peatio

Prepare configure files


Setup bitcoind rpc endpoint

# replace username:password and port with the one you set in
# username and password should only contain letters and numbers, do not use email as username
# bitcoin.conf in previous step
vim config/currencies.yml

Config database settings

vim config/database.yml

# Initialize the database and load the seed data
bundle exec rake db:setup

Run daemons

Read how to deal with Peatio daemons at Peatio daemons.

SSL Certificate setting

For security reason, you must setup SSL Certificate for production environment, if your SSL Certificated is been configured, please change the following line at config/environments/production.rb

config.force_ssl = true


sudo rm /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/default
sudo ln -s /home/deploy/peatio/current/config/nginx.conf /etc/nginx/conf.d/peatio.conf
sudo service nginx restart
