  • SSH keys were added for access to the server

  • Created a Sudo user on server: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-create-a-sudo-user-on-ubuntu-quickstart

  • Added ssh keys to babble user

  • Installation as babble user:

    cd ~
    wget https://bootstrap.pypa.io/get-pip.py
    sudo python3 get-pip.py
    sudo apt-get install nginx
    sudo apt-get install build-essential python3-dev
    sudo pip3 install virtualenv
    
    sudo apt-get install postgresql postgresql-contrib
    sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://apt.postgresql.org/pub/repos/apt xenial-pgdg main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list'
    wget --quiet -O - http://apt.postgresql.org/pub/repos/apt/ACCC4CF8.asc | sudo apt-key add -
    sudo apt-get update
    
    sudo apt-get install postgresql-9.5-postgis-2.3 postgresql-9.5-postgis-scripts postgis postgresql-9.5-pgrouting
    sudo -u postgres createuser --superuser $USER; sudo -u postgres createdb $USER
    
    # sudo -u postgres
    # psql
    # \c babble
    # CREATE EXTENSION postgis;
    # \q
    # exit
    
    git clone https://github.com/anandpdoshi/strange-encounters.git
    cd strange-encounters
    virtualenv --python=python3 venv
    source venv/bin/activate
    pip install -r requirements.txt
    
    sudo mkdir -p /var/log/uwsgi
    sudo chown -R babble:babble /var/log/uwsgi
    
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:certbot/certbot
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install python-certbot-nginx
    
    cd ~/strange-encounters
    source venv/bin/activate
    python server/main.py initdb
    
  • This didn't work — uWSGI setup based on: http://flask.pocoo.org/docs/0.12/deploying/uwsgi/

screen -S babble
cd ~/strange-encounters
source venv/bin/activate
uwsgi -s /tmp/babble.sock --manage-script-name --chdir server --mount /=main.py --callable app --processes 4 --threads 2 --http :8000 --chmod-socket=666
  • Used flask app.run
screen -S babble
cd ~/strange-encounters
source venv/bin/activate
python server/main.py run
