Superdesk install script
  • I don't know if there's any need or use but I did modify the current script for a fresh install on Ubuntu 19.10. It's still imperfect and needs some testing. Currently set to install off the master branch with publisher and analytics (unless I totally missed something). Currently no simple setup for domain name and mail settings.

    I have my script and an email address at bmg.dirigo.us

    Feedback is welcome of course.

  • Do you think it could work on 18.04 or 20.04 - both of which are LTS versions of Ubuntu? I would recommend using an LTS distribution version of Ubuntu as you don't have to upgrade to in-between versions.


  • I am trying to install on 20.04 and I use the command in the install article and it has an issue with the ppa not have an appropriate release file. Any ideas or do I need to download and install that way?
  • I am currently working on an updated version as this does not currently work on 20.04. As far as I know it does work on 18.04. I have also run into a couple issues that seem a bit odd.

    The current plan is to touch this one up for one shot install on 18.04 and finish the 20.04 script.

    Until I finish the edit you will need to install that way. The only reason it hasn't been completed yet is I was pulled away for a bit. I will be working on it later today and my hope is it will not take long. Stay tuned.

  • I just published what I have for install scripts on my site. You can visit http://bmg.dirigo.us or run them directly:

    curl -s http://bmg.dirigo.us/install | sudo bash

    or for Ubuntu 20.04:

    curl -s http://bmg.dirigo.us/install20 | sudo bash

  • I will test your installation process, Bryan. I'll get back to you with my findings.

    If I were you I would create install scripts for:
    18.04 (LTS)
    20.04 (LTS)

    I wouldn't bother with non-lts versions as it would mean upgrading when you get to those seasonal upgrades.
