Installation on remote server (i.e. Digitalocean)

Post by smt »

Hi,

We'd like to perform an Installation on a remote server (i.e. Digitalocean), however, can't seem to find any instructions, all is for local host.

Are we missing some KB/forum entry or is it only possible in local?

Thanks a lot!

Commands from the download page (https://www.mayan-edms.com/download/) can be executed remotely using an SSH console.

Code: Select all

ssh username@yourserver.com curl -fsSL get.mayan-edms.com -o get-mayan-edms.sh
ssh username@yourserver.com INSTALL_DOCKER=true sh get-mayan-edms.sh
When using a Linux console, there is not much difference between localhost and remote.

If you are looking for a configuration management tool like Salt Stack, Ansible, or Chef, we don't provide those. They are beyond the scope of the deployments type we support ourselves. A quick search returns some contributed by users:

Hey there, I came across this post and thought maybe I would ask is you (OP) ever got that sorted, i too am a newbie to containers and i really need to get Mayan available using DIgitalOcean.

I have the containers (Mayan and postgres) up and running as per the deployment instructions but I cannot find any info on whether i need to deploy and attach a Nginx container ( and how to connect ) or can i wire up a normal install of Nginx to serve the Mayan Container ? I understand that this isnt exactly the best place for this but you seemed to have the same problem as i.

If maybe you have found a good resource for these sort of things, I could really use the direction here....
thanks in advance.....
