Install Yugabyte Platform
YugabyteDB universes and clusters are created and managed using the Yugabyte Platform. The default option to install Yugabyte Platform on a host machine that is connected to the Internet.
Connect to the Yugabyte Platform instance and do the following.
- Install Replicated.
$ curl -sSL https://get.replicated.com/docker | sudo bash
NOTE: If you are installing Replicated behind a proxy, you need to run the following:
$ curl -x http://<proxy_address>:<proxy_port> https://get.replicated.com/docker | sudo bash
After the Replicated installation completes, verify that it is running by running the following command:
$ sudo docker ps
You should see an output similar to the following:
Set up HTTPS (optional)
Launch Replicated UI by going to http://yugaware-host-public-ip:8800. The warning shown next states that the connection to the server is not private (yet). You will address this warning as soon after setting up HTTPS for the Replicated Admin Console in the next step. Click Continue to Setup and then ADVANCED to bypass this warning and go to the Replicated Admin Console.
You can provide your own custom SSL certificate along with a hostname.
The simplest option is use a self-signed certificate for now and add the custom SSL certificate later. Note that you will have to connect to the Replicated Admin Console using an IP address (as noted below).
Upload the license file
Now, upload the Yugabyte license file that you received from Yugabyte Support.
If you are asked to choose an installation type, choose
The next step is to add a password to protect the Replicated Admin Console (note that this Admin Console is for Replicated and is different from Yugabyte Platform, the Admin Console for YugabyteDB).
Replicated will perform a set of preflight checks to ensure that the host is setup correctly for Yugabyte Platform.
Click Continue to configure Yugabyte Platform.
If the preflight check fails, review the Troubleshoot Yugabyte Platform to find a resolution.
