3. Generate Apache ConfigΒΆ

  1. Clone and check out the latest tag of ood-portal-generator:

    cd ~/ood/src
    scl enable git19 -- git clone https://github.com/OSC/ood-portal-generator.git
    cd ood-portal-generator/
    scl enable git19 -- git checkout v0.4.0
  2. ood-portal-generator is a script that takes a config.yml (or uses defaults if not provided) and renders an Apache config from a template. Generate a default one now:

    scl enable rh-ruby22 -- rake
    # => mkdir -p build
    # => rendering templates/ood-portal.conf.erb => build/ood-portal.conf
  3. Copy this to the default installation location:

    sudo scl enable rh-ruby22 -- rake install
    # => cp build/ood-portal.conf /opt/rh/httpd24/root/etc/httpd/conf.d/ood-portal.conf
  4. For now, lets use basic auth with an .htpasswd file until we get the installation complete. Then we will add another authentication mechanism. Start by generating an .htpasswd file with a user that exists on your system (the password need not be the same as their current system password):

    sudo scl enable httpd24 -- htpasswd -c /opt/rh/httpd24/root/etc/httpd/.htpasswd \${SUDO_USER}
    #=> New password:
    #=> Re-type new password:
    #=> Adding password for user ${SUDO_USER}


    Replace ${SUDO_USER} above with a user name that exists on the system if you want to test with another user other than current user.


The Apache config references the location of mod_ood_proxy, nginx_stage, and ood_auth_map. Be sure to update these locations if you change the PREFIX for any installation of the corresponding package in the config.yml prior to generating the Apache config.
