Debian and Vagrant Installation Tips¶
Please note that this info is old and has not been updated since 25 Sep 2013
Get a Wheezy box¶
From this useful tutorial
The previous version, Debian Squeeze, struggled with an easy installation of Redis and you can get it working with back-ports.
vagrant box add wheezy64 http://dl.dropbox.com/u/937870/VMs/wheezy64.box mkdir skyline cd skyline vagrant init wheezy64
Extra Vagrant configuration¶
Forward the port required for the web application
config.vm.network :forwarded_port, guest: 1500, host: 1500
You’ll need pip to be able to add some of the requirements for python, as well as python-dev without which some of the packages used with pip will not work!
sudo apt-get install python-dev sudo apt-get install python-pip
After that we can clone the project’s repository
git clone https://github.com/earthgecko/skyline.git
Once we have the project we can change into the folder and start going through all the python dependencies.
cd skyline sudo pip install -r requirements.txt sudo apt-get install python-numpy python-scipy python-scikits.statsmodels sudo pip install patsy msgpack_python
sudo pip install -r requirements.txt sudo apt-get install python-numpy python-scipy python-scikits.statsmodels sudo pip install patsy msgpack_python
Redis 2.6 on Debian Wheezy¶
Version 2.6 is available on the Wheezy back-port which means it will be available in the next Debian stable version and was back ported to Wheezy.
sudo vim /etc/apt/sources.list
Add the back-port, replace $YOUR_CONFIGURATION according to your local configuration.
deb http://**$YOUR_CONFIGURATION**.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-backports main
Update and install Redis-Server, don’t forget to kill the process as it will be started with the default config right after the installation.
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get -t wheezy-backports install redis-server sudo pkill redis
With all dependencies installed you can now copy an example for the settings file. This will be the place to add your Graphite URL and other details but for now we only need to update the IP bound to the web application so the Vagrant host will display it.
cp src/settings.py.example src/settings.py
Edit file for bind.
And change the IP to listen on host’s requests.
WEBAPP_IP = '0.0.0.0'
