Debian / Ubuntu
To get started installing Morpheus on Ubuntu (14.04 or 16.04) a few prepratory items should be addressed first.
First make sure the apt repository is up to date by running
sudo apt-get update. It might also be advisable to verify that the assigned hostname of the machine is self resolvable.
nslookup hostname) some installation commands will be unable to verify service health during installation and fail.
Next simply download the relevant
.deb package for installation. Morpheus release packages can be acquired from the downloads section in the Morpheus Hub. Please note the download section will only appear in the hub if you have an approved Morpheus license. To request a license, visit https://morpheushub.com
TIP: Use the
wgetcommand to directly download the package to your appliance server. i.e.
Next we must install the package onto the machine and configure the morpheus services:
sudo dpkg -i morpheus-appliance_x.x.x-1.amd64.deb sudo morpheus-ctl reconfigure
Once the installation is complete the web interface will automatically start up. By default it will be resolvable at
https://your_machine_name and in many cases this may not be resolvable from your browser. The url can be changed by editing
/etc/morpheus/morpheus.rb and changing the value of
appliance_url. After this has been changed simply run:
sudo morpheus-ctl stop morpheus-ui
sudo morpheus-ctl reconfigure
sudo morpheus-ctl start morpheus-ui
NOTE: The morpheus-ui can take 2-3 minutes to startup before it becomes available
There are additional post install settings that can be viewed in the Advanced Configuration section.
Once the browser is pointed to the appliance a first time setup wizard will be presented. Please follow the on screen instructions by creating the master account. From there you will be presented with the license settings page where a license can be applied for use (if a license is required you may request one or purchase one by contacting your sales representative).
More details on setting up infrastructure can be found in the Infrastructure section.
TIP: If any issues occur it may be prudent to check the morpheus log for details at
