eLAND installs on a VPS with Dokku.
See the Dokku installation guide.
Install Dokku on a VPS with a fresh Ubuntu 16.04,
Domains: don't set a global domain, but set a domain for the app with a wildchart
(all dokku commands are on the server)
dokku domains:set app-name *.my-domain.com
Create app, install postgres and redis plugins and bind them to the app (see Dokku guide).
install the nl language pack if not present (for translating dates)
sudo apt-get install language-pack-nl
- Configure nginx to allow bigger uploads (for documents)
sudo su - dokku mkdir /home/dokku/appname/nginx.conf.d/ echo 'client_max_body_size 10M;' > /home/dokku/appname/nginx.conf.d/upload.conf exit sudo service nginx reload
A CNAME record with wildcard should point to the Dokku app url.
Match subdomains and database schemas (groups)
Set a config var for each subdomain to the name of the schema in the database
dokku config:set appname SCHEMA_FLUPKESUBDOMAIN=flupkeschema
Above example couples domain flupkesubdomain.my-domain.com to database schema flupkeschema.
Set the overall domain with:
dokku config:set appname OVERALL_DOMAIN=my-domain.com
Create a IAM user on AWS with access only to S3. Then create 2 buckets in your region for images and documents See file include/default.php for which libraries are to be uploaded. The buckets should have the same name as the url.
dokku config:set S3_IMG=img.letsa.net S3_DOC=doc.letsa.net dokku config:set AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=aaa AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=bbb
Create CNAME records to these buckets
img.letsa.net CNAME record for img.letsa.net.s3-eu-central-1.amazonaws.com
See the AWS S3 docs
You need to set up CORS configuration on bucket S3_RES for the fonts of footable 2.0.3 to load.
"1.0" encoding="UTF-8" xml version=<CORSConfiguration xmlns="http://s3.amazonaws.com/doc/2006-03-01/"> <CORSRule> <AllowedOrigin>*</AllowedOrigin> <AllowedMethod>GET</AllowedMethod> <MaxAgeSeconds>3000</MaxAgeSeconds> <AllowedHeader>Authorization</AllowedHeader> </CORSRule> </CORSConfiguration>
SMTP mailserver (e.i. Amazon Simple Email Service)
From mail addresses
MAIL_FROM_ADDRESS: a mail address when a reply-to address has been set.
MAIL_NOREPLY_ADDRESS: a notification mail you can not reply to
MAIL_HOSTER_ADDRESS: used for the request-hosting form.
MAIL_NOTIFY_ADDRESS: mail system notifications.
Mail is sent only from
These addresses should be set up for DKIM in the mailserver.
Coordinates of addresses are looked up and cached from the Google geocoding service in order to show the location on maps. At maximum every 2 minutes a request is sent to the API in order not to hit the daily free limit. You need to get a key from Google
and put the key in the environment variable
The geocoding service can be blocked by setting
GEO_BLOCK to 1.
Request hosting form
The Domain of a request-hosting form can be set with:
domain of the hosting form and redirects is formatted the same way as the schema subdomains.
- Dots are replaced by double underscore
- Hyphens are replaced by triple underscore
- all characters should be uppercase in the environment variable.
Other environment vars
TIMEZONE: defaults to 'Europe/Brussels'
MASTER_PASSWORD: sha512 encoded password for 'master' -> gives admin access to all letsgroups.
