Install the Operating system
Nodeum supports the following distributions:
- CentOS 7.4 and higher
- RHEL 7.4 and higher
If your Operating System version is below than 7.4, you first need to upgrade. The reason is that the right Ansible version can not be deployed.
- Root privileges are required (using sudo).
- SELinux is disabled (managed at deployment).
- The system must be up to date.
If you are running CentOS or RHEL, keep your system up-to-date as follows:
# RHEL or CentOS
Nodeum will define one user which needs ID : 1000. This ID is created automaticly when the package is deployed.
If users already use these ID, you have to change their id :
- The firewall is disabled (this is managed at deployment).
- The installation will be done by Ansible (this is managed at deployment).
❗ Error during a local installation
If you install Nodeum in local Mode, you might be faced to this type of Ansible error :
You need to restart the linux system to take into account a change and relaunch the Ansible.
* Conflicts between Percona and Mysql :
yum remove Percona-Server-shared-56
And then restart the Ansible.
Restart the server VM or Physical.
Nodeum is now ready to use, you can access it through your browser at this url : http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/ or via your favorite DNS name.
Run this check script on the server to validate that all processes and up and running.

💡Set/Export: http_proxy With Special Characters In Password
If the proxy server password has special characters such as !,@, you need to to use unicode characters in hexadecimal.
You need to convert the special characters in hexadecimals. In this example @ becomes %40, : becomes %3A, and so on. (You can use for example: https://www.online-toolz.com/tools/text-hex-convertor.php)
In our case, the password: F@o:o!B#ar$ is replaced by F%40o%3Ao%21B%23ar%24
Thus the export http_proxy looks like this:
