Install from Repository via Ansible (Debian, and RedHat based distros)
We provide Ansible installation and configuration scripts which drastically reduce the time required to set up an Opencast installation, and help you manage the configuration across your entire cluster. Whether you are installing a single machine, or dozens, these scripts should do the basic setup of your Opencast install.
Note that these scripts are meant as a basis to get you started and you will likely need to adjust and extend them to fit your local environment for which you need to have some basic knowledge of Ansible. Please review the scripts before using them to make sure they fit your needs.
Examples in this document refer to
r/7.x. You should replace those with the version you want to install!
Ansible may be available from your distribution's packaging manager, or you may need to install it manually. See the Ansible installation documentation for more details.
The next step is getting the scripts themselves. Go to the list of branches
and then click on the branch version you want. This must match the desired Opencast version, so if you want the
latest Opencast 7 release click on
r/7.x. Then click on
Clone or download, then
Download Zip. You will need
to decompress this file someplace handy, and then run terminal commands from inside that directory.
Alternatively, if you familiar with
git you can just clone the repository like this
git clone -b r/7.x https://github.com/opencast/oc-config-management
To complete your install, please follow the instructions in the README.md documentation included in the scripts.
