Open edX Step-By-Step Production Installation Guide
This is a step-by-step fully automated script to stand up a single-server full-stack production-ready instance of Open edX release Ginkgo.1 running on an Amazon Web Services (AWS) EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud -- aka virtual server) R3.Large instance (aka 2-cpu server with 16gb RAM and configurable hard drive space). The script installs the following Open edX modules:
- Learning Management System (LMS)
- Course Management System (CMS)
- Insights Analytics module and api
- Certification Module (To generate digital course completion certificates)
- Course Discovery (To provide a comprehensive course search engine capability to learners)
- Ecommerce Server (for paid courses)
- Discussion Forum
- XQueue and RabbitMQ (to enable asynchronous multi-tasking such as automatic computer source code graders)
The Open edX platform leverages a plethora of technologies, and this tends to be a formidable stumbling block for all of us, initially at least. For what it's worth, I know a lot about a few of Open edX's technologies, and almost nothing about everything else. Unlike the official documentation, this page attempts to assume as little as possible. Hopefully it helps. Good luck!
