4. Start Services¶
By default the Apache HTTP Server is disabled. In this section we will enable the Apache service. Please see section Add LDAP Support for a more advanced and recommended authentication method after this.
Start the Apache HTTP Server:
- CentOS/RHEL 7
sudo systemctl start httpd24-httpd sudo systemctl enable httpd24-httpd
- CentOS/RHEL 8
sudo systemctl start httpd sudo systemctl enable httpd
If you access the OnDemand server that you just started, you will be presented with a username/password dialog box. The default user must exist on the system before login is possible.
(Optional) Start the Dex server
If using the default OnDemand authentication mechanism, you must start the
- CentOS/RHEL 7 & 8
sudo systemctl start ondemand-dex sudo systemctl enable ondemand-dex
(Optional) Configure default user
If you wish to use the default
oodyou must create that user on the OnDemand system.
Using the default
ooduser is not recommended for production and is intended only for evaluation and testing of OnDemand. The recommended approach is to configure LDAP, see Add LDAP Support, or some othe authentication mechanism in Apache such as OIDC or Shibboleth.
sudo groupadd ood sudo useradd -d /home/ood -g ood -k /etc/skel -m ood
Browse to your OnDemand server and login the username
ood@localhostand the password
password. If everything worked you should be presented with the OnDemand Dashboard App.
