This document explains how to instantiate a Webrunner
IDE. It can be used to run a single encapsulated instance of a software, work
on SlapOS Softwar Releases or simply to host static web pages.
This document will explain the different instantiation parameters. Please refer to other
documents on add
a software to the SlapOS Master catalog or supplying/installing
The process of installing (supplying) a software and providing it as a service (instantiation) are the same
for all software. However during instantiation each instance can be configured differently.
This section will cover the specific configuration parameters used for a Webrunner used for
example during tutorials on extending software releases.
After selecting Services, Adding a new service, selecting
Webrunner and the latest release, you should reach the Webrunner
There are two software types available. Default will install a
single Webrunner on a available node partition, whereas Resilient
will create three instances on machines in physcially different locations.
Give your Webrunner a recognizable name, select Resilient, then
click Proceed to continue and request instantiation.
You will be forwarded back to the list of deployed services. Note that you might have to refresh the page for your new instance to appear.
Once you can see it, click on entry to open the connection parameters.
You can follow the compilation by looking at the slapos-node-software.log
# tail opt/slapos/log/slapos-node-software.log -f
Note, it might take a few minutes for the instance to become available. Refresh the page from time to time until the
connection parameter table displays parameteres. Once the URL entry shows a URL, the Webrunner is up and working. Note
down the init-user and init-password
If you go to the URL and provide user name and password you should be able to
access your webrunner.
