#8436 List of Supported Distros?


Is it possible we could get a list of distros that Allura is supported on? I tried following the Docker install steps and it failed on both Ubuntu 22.04 (Current) and 20.04. The steps did work correctly on 18.04, but that version is now out of support.

Version: 1.13.0
Steps I followed: https://forge-allura.apache.org/docs/getting_started/installation.html

    What errors did you get? [#8406] has another user's error messages with Ubuntu, if your error matches one of those perhaps that will help.

    We are way overdue for making a release, you could try installing from latest git instead of 1.13.0. It should be stable and has quite a few fixes & improvements.

    Thanks for the reply. I didn't see any obvious errors when following the Docker steps, but upon spinning up the containers I couldn't connect to the web interface on port 8080. Though oddly I could get to the SOLR web interface and MongoDB responded when I poked it with a web browser.

    I would eventually get a time out on 8080. Sometimes I would get redirected to the 'neighborhoods' URL if I waited long enough, but still no page.

    I did run across ticket 8406 while I was Googling for an answer. It didn't seem to help me at the time, but I can re-check.

    I'm happy to follow any troubleshooting or log gathering steps you suggest.

    Interesting you can get to some services, and even getting redirected to the 'neighborhoods' URL sometimes.

    Does docker-compose ps say the "web" container is up?

    Any errors in docker-compose logs web?

    Are you using an IP or hostname besides localhost? If so see note 2 at https://forge-allura.apache.org/docs/getting_started/installation.html#first-run

    Running "docker-compose ps" shows all listed containers as up, this includes allura_http1.

    Running "docker-compose logs web" gives me:

    I am attempting to access the VM from another system via it's local network address. I did follow the instructions to the note as far as I can tell.
    I tried connecting locally with links on https://localhost:8080 and no luck.

    Thanks again.

    I noticed you mentioned "https://localhost:8080" with httpS. I don't know if that's what you were actually accessing or not, but there's no https support for local allura. So you'll need to make sure your browser connects to plain http.

    Oops. I apologize, that was a miss-type. I tested both http and https just to be sure.
