AWS Installation Guide

Step 1: Prepare the infrastructure

Infrastructural requirements for the installation are:

  • An EC2 m5.xlarge Debian instance with a 200 GB disk storage
  • An Elastic Container Registry repository with the baseapp image
  • A DNS record to point to the machine(e.g. example.domain.com)

Create these resources before starting the installation and provision them with your RSA key to be able to connect to the VM instance using SSH.

Step 2: Configure the instance

Connect to the instance over SSH as a root/admin user and perform the following steps.

Core dependencies

apt-get update
apt-get install -y -q git tmux gnupg2 dirmngr dbus htop curl libmariadbclient-dev-compat build-essential

Docker installation

curl -fsSL https://get.docker.com/ | bash
usermod -a -G docker $USER

COMPOSE_VERSION="1.23.2"
COMPOSE_URL="https://github.com/docker/compose/releases/download/$COMPOSE_VERSION/docker-compose-$(uname -s)-$(uname -m)"

curl -L "$COMPOSE_URL" -o /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose

User creation

 groupadd app
 useradd --create-home --home /home/app --shell /bin/bash \
   --gid app --groups docker,sudo app

Ruby installation

As the app user(sudo su app), run:

gpg2 --keyserver hkp://pool.sks-keyservers.net --recv-keys 409B6B1796C275462A1703113804BB82D39DC0E3 7D2BAF1CF37B13E2069D6956105BD0E739499BDB
curl -sSL https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable
source /home/app/.rvm/scripts/rvm
rvm install --quiet-curl 2.6.1
rvm use --default 2.6.1
gem install bundler

Step 3: Prepare the deployment

Clone the opendax repo to /home/app

git clone git@git.openware.com:opendax

cd into the opendax directory and prepare config/app.yml according to the README.s

When the configuration is ready, run

bundle install
rake render:config
rake parity:import && \
  until rake wallet:create['deposit','http://0.0.0.0:8545','changeme']; do sleep 15; done && \
  rake wallet:create['hot','http://0.0.0.0:8545','changeme'] && \
  rake wallet:create['warm','http://0.0.0.0:8545','changeme'] && \
  rake render:config && \
  rake service:all && \
  chmod +x bin/install_webhook
  ./bin/install_webhook

After the deployment process is finished, the frontend would be accessible from the domain provided in the configuration.
