Installing Apache Allura on your Digital Ocean droplet is now as easy as typing
Apache Allura is a Software Forge that powers SourceForge.net. Today,
I created a Makefile that simplifies the process of setting up Allura on a Digital Ocean droplet. The source code is hosted
and on github.
Here are the steps to get started with deploying your own instance of Apache Allura.
- Set up your digital ocean account and spin up a new
- SSH into your droplet’s root
ssh [email protected]<DO_id>and
clone the repository using
git clone https://[email protected]/git/u/rhnvrm/allura-install
- Change your working directory into the cloned repository.
apt-get install git make
If you face an error during a make step, report it to the issue tracker on github.
If it is an error that you can fix or due to some network errors, you can run the next step listed in the make file.
Suppose, you faced an error during the
npm install inside the
initialize-allura-taskd, you can run
make initialize-allura-taskd again and
then run each next step in a simlar fashion (such as
make start (only required if
make failed during a certain step)
