Run Virola-server in Docker Container on Alma Linux and Rocky Linux
We tested this instruction on freshly installed Alma Linux 8, 9 and Rocky Linux 8, 9
Install updates (recommended)
sudo dnf -y update sudo reboot
Install Docker Engine on Alma (or Rocky) Linux
sudo dnf install -y yum-utils sudo yum-config-manager --add-repo https://download.docker.com/linux/centos/docker-ce.repo sudo dnf -y install docker-ce docker-ce-cli containerd.io docker-compose-plugin sudo systemctl enable --now docker
Download the Virola Server Docker Image
sudo yum -y install wget wget https://virola.io/downloads/126.96.36.19981311/virola-server-docker-188.8.131.5281311.tar.gz
Load the Docker Image into Container
docker load < virola-server-docker-184.108.40.20633015.tar.gz
Run Virola server in Docker
docker run -it --rm -p 8888:7777/tcp -p 8888:7777/udp -v $HOME/virola-storage:/virola providesupport/virola-server:latestWhere:
8888— the port you want to listen on from the outside and to which the virola client will connect. Can be any valid port number (from 1 to 65535), but must be the same for both TCP and UDP protocols;
7777— is the port inside the Docker container, which must be 7777 and cannot be changed.
Note: On first launch, the server will create an admin user with the admin password and administrator rights. Please change the default admin password as soon as possible to a more secure one.
You can change user password from the Virola client. You can also change
password of an existing user using the
command line argument of the Virola server.
We strongly recommend to encrypt Linux machine on which Virola server is running. The best way is to encrypt it during Linux installation but it is also possible to encrypt the existing Linux instance. We've prepared a detailed instruction about disc encryption in Linux environment for you.
