WebStack (AMP) in OpenSolaris JeOS Prototype

Filed under: cloud, jeos, opensolaris, virtualbox, Virtualization — natiku @ 6:19 am

OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS Prototype is PURE CLI enviroment, so its small true command line only enviroment, as such is ideal install BASE for web services like is WebStack AMP = Apache MySQL PHP

In this example I will use a WebStack AMP repository in OpenSolaris repository and optional WebStack repository.

General Information – JeOS Prototype OpenSolaris project

Download OpenSolaris 200906 JeOS Prototype VM for one 10+ most popular Virtualization Formats:

Part 1: Check JeOS readiness as user root

1. Switch to root

pfexec su - root

2a. Check, if PKG will clean download cache on SUCCESS

root@osol-jeos:~# pkg property flush-content-cache-on-success
PROPERTY                       VALUE
flush-content-cache-on-success True

2b. Check, then we increase PKG download patience for slowest networks

root@osol-jeos:~# set | grep PKG

2c. Check, then we use right main repository for

root@osol-jeos:~# pkg publisher
PUBLISHER                             TYPE     STATUS   URI          (preferred)  origin   online
contrib                               origin   online

2d. Check, then we can access these repositories

root@osol-jeos:~# pkg refresh --full

2e. Check, download speed of whole repository catalog

root@osol-jeos:~# curl >/dev/null
% Total    % Received % Xferd  Average Speed   Time    Time     Time  Current
Dload  Upload   Total   Spent    Left  Speed
100 1333k  100 1333k    0     0  93491      0  0:00:14  0:00:14 --:--:--  126k

2f. Check, if we have enought memory and activated swap (I recommend if possible to have VM with 768MB-1GB RAM configured)

root@osol-jeos:~# top | grep Memory
Memory: 1024M phys mem, 1025M free mem, 512M total swap, 512M free swap

Part2: Install WebStack AMP on OpenSolaris JeOS Prototype

I will install amp cluster with PHPMyAdmin and optionally we can install over a webstack-ui cluster

root@osol-jeos:~# pkg install -nv amp | tee /tmp/eval.log
Before evaluation:
