Getting started

On systems with docker and docker-compose installed, the process should be as simple as:

docker-compose build
docker-compose up

If you use podman and podman-compose instead, the process for constructing a rootless container is nearly identical:

podman-compose build
podman-compose up

Once the application has started, navigate to http://localhost:8080 and login with / philomena123


If you are running Docker on Windows and the application crashes immediately upon startup, please ensure that autocrlf is set to false in your Git config, and then re-clone the repository. Additionally, it is recommended that you allocate at least 4GB of RAM to your Docker VM.

If you run into an Elasticsearch bootstrap error, you may need to increase your max_map_count on the host as follows:

sudo sysctl -w vm.max_map_count=262144

If you have SELinux enforcing (Fedora, Arch, others; manifests as a Could not find a Mix.Project error), you should run the following in the application directory on the host before proceeding:

chcon -Rt svirt_sandbox_file_t .

This allows Docker or Podman to bind mount the application directory into the containers.

If you are using a platform which uses cgroups v2 by default (Fedora 31+), use podman and podman-compose.


You need a key installed on the server you target, and the git remote installed in your ssh configuration.

git remote add production philomena@<serverip>:philomena/

The general syntax is:

git push production master

And if everything goes wrong:

git reset HEAD^ --hard
git push -f production master

(to be repeated until it works again)
