Native Open edX platform Ubuntu 16.04 64 bit Installation

This page describes how to install Open edX software on a single Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit server from scratch. This is for releases Ficus through Juniper.

Warning

Installing and running an Open edX instance is not simple.  We strongly recommend that you use a service provider to run the software for you.  They have free trials that make it easy to get started: https://open.edx.org/get-started/

Only proceed with these installation steps if you are comfortable with installing and diagnosing complex Linux systems.

The following server requirements will be fine for supporting hundreds of registered students on a single server.

Note: This will run MySQL, Memcache, Mongo, nginx, and all of the Open edX services (LMS, Studio, Forums, ORA, etc) on a single server. In production configurations we recommend that these services run on different servers and that a load balancer be used for redundancy. Setting up production configurations is beyond the scope of this wiki page.

  • Ubuntu 16.04 amd64 (oraclejdk required). It may seem like other versions of Ubuntu will be fine, but they are not.  Only 16.04 is known to work.
  • Minimum 8GB of memory
  • At least one 2.00GHz CPU or EC2 compute unit
  • Minimum 25GB of free disk, 50GB recommended for production servers

For hosting in Amazon we recommend an t2.large with at least a 50Gb EBS volume, see https://aws.amazon.com/ec2/pricing. Community Ubuntu AMIs have 8GB on the root directory, make sure to expand it before installing.

WARNING:

  • These instructions will potentially destroy the server they are run on, you should only do them on a freshly installed virtual machine. But if you still want to have a try to re-install the Open edX stack on the same server, please see this article for some issues you may face and how to fix them.

  • By default ssh will only allow key based authentication. Please setup key based SSH logins or modify the configuration repo to allow for password based SSH logins before running Ansible.

NOTES:

  • If you are running your services behind a proxy, please see here

Prep the server

Launch your Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit server and log in to it as a user that has full sudo privileges.

Update your Ubuntu package sources:

sudo apt-get update -y sudo apt-get upgrade -y sudo reboot

Installation

You will run a few scripts to accomplish the installation. Please read the contents of the scripts before running this to ensure you are aware of everything they will do: they are quite extensive. The scripts require that the running user can run commands as root via sudo.

  1. Set the OPENEDX_RELEASE variable. You choose the version of software by setting the OPENEDX_RELEASE variable before running the commands. See Open edX Named Releases for the tags you can use.

    export OPENEDX_RELEASE=the-tag/you-want-to-install
  2. Create a config.yml file.  This file specifies the hostname (and port, if needed) of the LMS and Studio.   Create a file in the current directory named , like this: 

    # The host names of LMS and Studio. Don't include the "https://" part: EDXAPP_LMS_BASE: "online.myeducation.org" EDXAPP_CMS_BASE: "studio.online.myeducation.org"

    Your LMS host and Studio host must either be the same hostname (on different ports), or Studio must be a subdomain of the LMS.  If you need a different configuration, you may need to also set EDXAPP_SESSION_COOKIE_DOMAIN.
     
    NOTE: Open edX and edX are registered trademarks.  You may not use "openedx." or "edx." as subdomains when naming your site. For more details, see the edX Trademark Policy.  Here are some examples of unacceptable domain names:

    • DON'T: openedx.yourdomain.org
    • DON'T: edx.yourdomain.org
    • DON'T: openedxyourdomain.org
    • DON'T: yourdomain-edx.com
  3. Bootstrap the Ansible installation: 

    wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/edx/configuration/$OPENEDX_RELEASE/util/install/ansible-bootstrap.sh -O - | sudo -E bash
  4. Randomize passwords.  This step used to be optional, but as of Ironwood, it is required.  If this is to replace an older installation, copy your my-passwords.yml file from that installation.  If this is a new installation: 

    wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/edx/configuration/$OPENEDX_RELEASE/util/install/generate-passwords.sh -O - | bash

    IMPORTANT: Be sure to save the generated my-passwords.yml in a safe place. If you ever need to access your services directly, you'll need these credentials. More details of password generation and other security measures are here: How to Override Default Configuration Passwords and Verify Exposed Services.
     

  5. Install the Open edX software.  This can take some time, perhaps an hour. (Note: for Ginkgo and earlier, this file was called sandbox.sh): 

    wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/edx/configuration/$OPENEDX_RELEASE/util/install/native.sh -O - | bash
  6. You will need to finish configuring your server, for example to set the LMS_ROOT_URL setting, before everything will work properly.

Bad Suggestions (Arbitrary Upgrades)

Some Open edX components are outdated. If you see a message suggesting that you update something manually, don't do it -- something is probably relying on the outdated software remaining at that older version. Specifically:

  • Ubuntu may alert you that a newer version of Ubuntu available when you SSH in to your server, and may suggest that you run  to upgrade to that newer version. Don't do it.
  • Pip may alert you that there is a newer version of pip available, and may suggest that you run  to install it. Don't do it.

If you arbitrarily upgrade parts of Open edX software, things will break. Instead, you should submit a pull request to change the line in the Open edX project where that specific version of the software is defined. All pull requests need to be reviewed before they can be merged, and part of the review process will consist of testing the full platform with the updated software, identifying any breakages, and fixing them as part of the pull request.

3. Installing and Starting the Open edX Platform

3.3. Devstack¶

Devstack is a deployment of the Open edX platform within a set of Docker containers designed for local development. Running the Open edX platform locally allows you to discover and fix system configuration issues early in development.

Devstack simplifies certain production settings to make development more convenient. For example, nginx and gunicorn are disabled in Devstack; Devstack uses Django’s instead.

You can install the Open edX developer stack (just known as Devstack) or the Open edX analytics developer stack (Analytics Devstack or just Analyticstack).

3.3.1. Devstack Installation¶

To run either Devstack or Analytics Devstack, see the devstack repository.

You can run Devstack or Analytics Devstack on Linux or macOS. See the Docker downloads page for information about the operating systems and architectures on which you can run Docker. Devstack using Docker for Windows has not been tested and it is not supported. For more information about Docker, see the Docker documentation.

3.3.2. Analytics Devstack¶

Some users might want to develop Analytics features on their instance of the Open edX platform. Because of the large number of dependencies needed to develop extensions to Analytics, edX has created a modified version of Devstack that provides the services and tools needed to modify the Open edX Analytics Pipeline.

For information on running Analytics Stack, see the Getting Started on Analytics document in the devstack repository.

Insights and the Analytics Data API are currently not included in Analytics Devstack.

3.1. Open edX Platform Installation Options¶


This section describes Open edX installation options and the components that each option includes. More details about the various options are at the Open edX Installation Options page on the edX wiki.

There are a three virtual machine options, which install the Open edX software in a virtual Ubuntu machine. If you prefer, you can install into an Ubuntu machine of your own using the Native installation.

3.1.1. Open edX Platform Virtual Machines¶

You can install the Open edX developer stack (devstack), the Open edX full stack (fullstack), or the Open edX analytics developer stack (analytics devstack).

  • Devstack is a Vagrant virtual machine instance designed for local development. For more information, see Open edX Devstack.
  • Fullstack is a Vagrant virtual machine instance designed for installing all Open edX services on a single server in a production-like configuration. For more information, see Open edX Fullstack.
  • Analytics devstack is a modified version of the devstack virtual machine that allows you to run Open edX Analytics. For more information, see Open edX Analytics Devstack.

3.1.1.1. Open edX Devstack¶

Devstack is a Vagrant instance designed for local development. Devstack has the same system requirements as Fullstack. This allows you to discover and fix system configuration issues early in development.

Devstack simplifies certain production settings to make development more convenient. For example, nginx and gunicorn are disabled in devstack; devstack uses Django’s runserver instead.

For information about devstack and other installation and configuration options from edX and the Open edX community, see the Open edX Installation Options page on the edX wiki.

Note

Because of the large number of dependencies needed to develop extensions to Open edX Insights, a separate development environment is available to support Analytics development. For more information, see Installing and Starting Analytics Devstack.

For more information about Vagrant, see the Vagrant documentation.

3.1.1.2. Open edX Fullstack¶

Fullstack is a Vagrant instance designed for installing all Open edX services on a single server in a production-like configuration. Fullstack is a pre-packaged Native installation running in a Vagrant virtual machine.

For information about fullstack and other installation and configuration options from edX and the Open edX community, see the Open edX Installation Options page on the edX wiki.

For more information about Vagrant, see the Vagrant documentation.

3.1.1.3. Open edX Analytics Devstack¶

Some users might want to develop Analytics features on their instance of the Open edX platform. Because of the large number of dependencies needed to develop extensions to Analytics, edX has created a separate developer stack, known as analytics devstack. We strongly recommend that you install the analytics devstack instead of adding Analytics extensions to an instance of devstack.

Analytics devstack is a modified version of the Open edX developer stack. This development environment provides all of the services and tools needed to modify the Open edX Analytics Pipeline, Data API, and Insights projects.

3.1.3. Software Components¶

All installations include the following Open edX components:

How to install Open edx on Ubuntu 20.04

Introduction

Open edX is an open-source platform you can use to create and host online courses. It was originally developed in 2012 by scientists at MIT and Harvard University and has since been adopted by organizations of all shapes and sizes to power a wide range of online learning use cases.
Open edX is the world's leading online learning platform. Google, Microsoft LaaS are just some of its users who use it to train employees and onboard new customers.
It has also been adopted by Harvard, MIT, Arizona State University among others for both interactive content delivery as well as progress tracking capabilities in large courses with multiple participants at once through an open-source system that can be downloaded easily free of cost from their website.
You can find some of the real-world examples here:

One of the most prominent features of the Open edX learning platform is self-paced training, which allows students to learn at their own pace. Other features include online discussion groups, wiki-based collaborative learning, learning assessments as a student progresses through a course, right-to-left language support, learner analytics, cohort-specific content.
As you complete this article, your production-ready Open edX platform is installed on a Ubuntu 20.4 server that can serve thousands of students and host multiple courses with ease.

Versions

Since 2012 Open edX team released 12 versions of this learning management system. Each new release contains several new features for learners, course teams, and developers. You can view full release notes for each version on the Open edX website.

This article describes the steps needed to install Lilac on Ubuntu 20.04.

Prerequisites

An understanding of the following items is required for this installation option:

  • Basic terminal usage
  • The basics of how Python web applications are built, installed, and deployed.
  • How to manage a Linux system, including supervisor.
  • The basics of configuration management and automation using Ansible.

Server Requirements

A single server can support hundreds of registered students if the following requirements are met.

Ubuntu 20.04 server

You need a Ubuntu 20.04 amd64 server(oraclejdk required). This server should be accessible over SSH and have a public IP address associated with it for hosting your Open edX instance publicly available on the internet.

Minimum 8GB of memory

To run Open edX successfully, you need a minimum of 8GB of memory. Please ensure that your server has more memory than that. For better performance, you can utilize a larger compute instance size depending on the amount of memory you need to serve students.

At least one 2.00GHz CPU and 50GB of Disk Space

If you want to have a few courses and video materials, it's suggested that you have more than 50GB of disk space.

You should have installed in your server.

If wget is not installed already, run
An understanding of the following items is required for this installation option:

HTTP firewall ports

After creating your Ubuntu server, Open the following HTTP ports used by Open edx

1. Prep the server

Launch your server and log in to it via SSH as a user that has full sudo privileges. Update your Ubuntu package sources:

2. Bootstrap the Ansible installation

3. Prep the Ansible Configuration

Create a directy for where all the ansible configurations goes, download the configuration variables there, and generate strong passwords for different services like different MySQL users and MongoDB.

Be sure to save the generated passwords in a safe place

4. Download the Theme

Create a directory for theming assets and download Lilac theme there.

This theme is responsive and made with one of the best frontend technologies, TailwindCSS.

5. Install Open edX

These instructions will potentially destroy the server they are run on, you should only do them on a freshly installed virtual machine

This can take some time, perhaps an hour.

Important

  • Ubuntu may alert you that a newer version of Ubuntu is available when you SSH into your server and may suggest that you run to upgrade to that newer version. Don’t do it.
  • Pip may alert you that there is a newer version of pip available and may suggest that you run to install it. ** Don’t do it**.

6. Important Open edX Platform Folders

application software files for all Open edx modules

all Ansible playbooks. You’ll learn a lot about how Ansible works simply by learning more about its folder structure

location to store server-vars.yml (further described in downstream repos)

“home” folder for all pip, ansible, and bash admin utilities

configuration files for all edx modules

all data (app, logs, etcetera)

7. Add Superuser

After the installation is successful you need a superuser to be able to access the Django admin portal. To add superuser to your instance, SSH to the server and run the following command

The prompt asks for a username, an email, and a password. After the user creation is complete visit http://public\_ip\_of\_your\_server/admin and login with the username (not the email) and password you picked previously.

This user has full access to your platform, Make sure you save your username and password in a secure place.

8. Enable SSL certificate

Installing an SSL certificate on your OpenX server is the best way to ensure security for both yourself and your students. The installation process only takes a few minutes.

It's highly recommended to install an SSL certification as soon as possible to keep users safe from any potential cyber-attacks.

Create DNS records

Open edx runs on Nginx, a fast, bare-bones webserver alternative to Apache, and like Apache, Nginx can host multiple virtual web servers on the same Ubuntu server instance. Each Open edX instance has at least 3 URLs. One for LMS, one for Studio, and One for Preview. Create A record in your DNS for each URL pointing to your server's public IP address. For example

Open edX and edX are registered trademarks. You may not use “openedx.” or “edx.” as subdomains when naming your site. Here are some examples of unacceptable domain names:

  • DON’T : openedx.yourdomain.org
  • DON’T : edx.yourdomain.org
  • DON’T : openedxyourdomain.org
  • DON’T : yourdomain-edx.com

Change and

lms.yml

open file with your favorite editor. Change following variables to domain names you just assigned to your instance

studio.yml

open file with your favorite editor. Change following variables to domain names you just assigned to your instance

Change Nginx files

LMS and Preview

open file with our favorite editor and add the following after section

It should look like following

Studio

open file with our favorite editor and add the following after section

It should look like following

Install Certbot

The published installation procedure on the official Certbot site changed in late 2020. The good news is that the new installation procedure is very simple to follow assuming that you are running Ubuntu 20.04 LTS or later:

When the prompt asks you for the Domain names, Make sure it covers LMS, Studio, and Preview addresses. Also, Choose Redirect to redirect all HTTP connections to HTTPS

Now you need to restart Nginx

To verify that your configuration edits are correct you should check the server status after restarting:

Test Your Platform

If everything works then your Open edX LMS and CMS should automatically redirect to https.

Setup A Cron Job To Auto-Renew Your Certificate(s)

The Certbot packages on your system come with a cron job that will renew your certificates automatically before they expire. Since Let’s Encrypt certificates expire after only 90 days, it’s highly advisable to take advantage of this feature. You can test automatic renewal for your certificates by running this command:

If that appears to be working correctly, you can arrange for automatic renewal by adding a cron job that runs the following command regularly:

Create a new cron job and add renew command there.

and next add following the content of the opened file

9. Troubleshooting Guide

Restarting the platform

When your Open edX installation is misbehaving and you’re unsure of your next step, You begin with a reboot. It can’t hurt, and occasionally you’re pleasantly surprised to find your instance in good health immediately afterward. The commands are as follows:

Django configuration

If you’re not a Python Django developer and you haven’t previously supported a Django app then you’d have no reason to be aware that Django apps have their back end that’s somewhat similar to the WordPress admin console. From your web browser, open your LMS, login, and then navigate to .
It's suggested that you spend some time getting acquainted with the parameters that are available to modify in the console.

Creating courses

In this article, we don't go over the details of how to create a course in your Open edX instance.
However, if you want to get started right away and skip all these complicated steps just head straight on over to your CMS URL, The studio URL you set in step 8. Once there log in with any user who has staff access such as the one created for yourself during Step 7. After logging into Studio successfully it's time to start creating courses.

Conclusion

Open edX is a good alternative for businesses since it allows you to implement customizations, manage and update training courses. Open edX will enable organizations to deploy their learning platform and develop high-quality content for their learners by providing a strong LMS and Open edX Studio.

It is important to keep in mind that Open edX can be a complex system. However, following the right instructions and best practices will allow you to experience one of the most scalable LMSs available today.
