Software Requirements

This section contains software requirements for the OnApp installation.

The requirements for OnApp Control Panel, Static Compute resources and Static Backup Servers based on CentOS are:

  • Install CentOS from the minimal CentOS ISO for Control Panel servers, static backup servers and static compute resources.
  • The minimum running services list on the box:

    network 	0:off 	1:off 	2:on 	3:on 	4:on 	5:on 	6:off 
    sshd 		0:off 	1:off 	2:on 	3:on 	4:on 	5:on 	6:off
  • The network on the box, should be configured with an ability to access rpm.repo.onapp.com and templates.repo.onapp.com 
  • The open ssh server should be configured with an ability for user(s) to access and log into the box.
  • The root user should be available on the box and configured as root accountroot usersuperuser with an access to all files, commands/tools and services on system. Installers should be run from under the root.
  • The curlrpmyum and grub packages must be installed on the system. The grub is a mandatory boot loader for Static Compute resources only.
  • Avoid using additional (not native) repositories for CentOS like "Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux" (epel) and others.
