YugabyteDB universes and clusters are created and managed using YugabyteDB Anywhere. The default option is to install YugabyteDB Anywhere on a host machine that is connected to the Internet.

Install Replicated

The first step is to connect to the host instance and then install Replicated by executing the following command:

curl -sSL https://get.replicated.com/docker | sudo bash

If you are installing Replicated behind a proxy, you need to execute the following command:

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 executing the following command:

sudo docker ps --format "{{.ID}}: {{.Image}}: {{.Command}}: {{.Ports}}"

You should see an output similar to the following:

Replicated successfully installed

Set up HTTPS (optional)

Launch the Replicated UI via http://< yugabyte-platform-host-public-ip >:8800. Expect to see a warning stating that the connection to the server is not yet private. This condition is resolved once HTTPS for the Replicated Admin Console is set up. Proceed by clicking Continue to Setup > ADVANCED to bypass the warning and access the Replicated Admin Console, as per the following illustration:

Replicated SSL warning

You can provide your own custom SSL certificate and a hostname, as per the following illustration:

It is recommended that you start with using a self-signed certificate, and then add the custom SSL certificate later. Note that in this case you connect to the Replicated Admin Console using an IP address, as per following illustration:
