Install OpenDax in Ubuntu 18.04

Step 1: Install Docker

To install Docker you will need to do those steps with sudo or login as root user with sudo -i

Create a Unix user for holding your application groupadd app useradd -d /home/app -s `which bash` -g app -m app

Installing from apt-get

First, update your existing list of packages:

apt update

Next, install a few prerequisite packages which let apt use packages over HTTPS:

apt install apt-transport-https ca-certificates curl software-properties-common

Then add the GPG key for the official Docker repository to your system:

curl -fsSL https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu/gpg | apt-key add -

Add the Docker repository to APT sources:

add-apt-repository "deb [arch=amd64] https://download.docker.com/linux/ubuntu bionic stable"

Next, update the package database with the Docker packages from the newly added repo:

apt update

Make sure you are about to install from the Docker repo instead of the default Ubuntu repo:

Finally, install Docker:

apt install docker-ce

Docker should now be installed, the daemon started, and the process enabled to start on boot. Check that it's running:

systemctl status docker

Add your app user into the docker group

usermod -aG docker app

Step 2: Install Docker Compose

Run this command to download the latest version of Docker Compose:

curl -L "https://github.com/docker/compose/releases/download/1.23.1/docker-compose-$(uname -s)-$(uname -m)" -o /usr/local/bin/docker-compose

chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose

Step 3: Clone OpenDax

Login to your app user: su - app

Clone opendax repository cd $HOME git clone https://github.com/rubykube/opendax.git cd opendax

Step 4: Clone your frontend
