## Installation
### Kubernetes / Docker
### With Docker (recommended)
Docker 17.09 or newer is required.
See the [server-deploy repo](https://gitlab.com/OpenCoop/CommonsPub/server-deploy), for a docker-compose based setup process.
Work in progress.
### Dependencies
---
### Manual installation
#### 1. Install dependencies
* Postgresql version 9.6 or newer
* Elixir version 1.5 or newer. If your distribution only has an old version available, check [Elixir's install page](https://elixir-lang.org/install.html) or use a tool like [asdf](https://github.com/asdf-vm/asdf).
* Build-essential tools

### Manual installation
#### 2. Install the app
* Clone this repo.
* Run `mix deps.get` to install elixir dependencies.
* Run `mix deps.get` to install elixir dependencies.
* Run `mix generate_config`. This will ask you a few questions about your instance and generate a configuration file in `config/generated_config.exs`. Check that and copy it to either `config/dev.secret.exs` or `config/prod.secret.exs`. It will also create a `config/setup_db.psql`; you may want to double-check this file in case you wanted a different username, or database name than the default. Then you need to run the script as PostgreSQL superuser (i.e. `sudo su postgres -c "psql -f config/setup_db.psql"`). It will create a db user, database and will setup needed extensions that need to be set up. Postgresql super-user privileges are only needed for this step.

* For these next steps, the default will be to run the server using the dev configuration file, `config/dev.secret.exs`. To run them using the prod config file, prefix each command at the shell with `MIX_ENV=prod`. For example: `MIX_ENV=prod mix phx.server`.

* Run `mix ecto.migrate` to run the database migrations. You will have to do this again after certain updates.

* You can check if your instance is configured correctly by running it with `mix phx.server` and checking the instance info endpoint at `/api/v1/instance`. If it shows your uri, name and email correctly, you are configured correctly. If it shows something like `localhost:4000`, your configuration is probably wrong, unless you are running a local development setup.

* The common and convenient way for adding HTTPS is by using Nginx as a reverse proxy. You can look at example Nginx configuration in `installation/pleroma.nginx`. If you need TLS/SSL certificates for HTTPS, you can look get some for free with letsencrypt: https://letsencrypt.org/

The simplest way to obtain and install a certificate is to use [Certbot.](https://certbot.eff.org) Depending on your specific setup, certbot may be able to get a certificate and configure your web server automatically.
