Installing a server on Linux via Docker container

Running the ELMA RPA server on Linux requires:

  • operating system: 64-bit Linux family OS;
  • additional software: 19.03.1;
  • processor: 2 cores, 3 GHz and higher (Intel Xeon is recommended);
  • RAM: 4 Gb;
  • hard disk: at least 10 Gb of free space on a system disk.

The installation process consists of several steps.

Step 1. Copy the archive elma_rpa_server_v1.0.9_linux_amd64_docker.tar to the folder containing the ELMA RPA server (the server root folder).

Step 2. Unpack the folder using the following command:

tar -xvf elma_rpa_server_v1.0.9_linux_amd64_docker.tar

184

Step 3. Go to the rpa_server_docker folder.

185

Step 4. Run the bash-script load_docker_imgs using the following command:

 ./load_docker_imgs

Port change

After you installed the Orchestrator you need to check its correct operation.

You can only work with the Orchestrator using the supported web-browsers Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. In the browser address bar enter the server address or name and a port for connection: http://<server_address>:<port>. The default port is 48080.

You can change the port if it is occupied by another application.

To do this, perform the following actions (illustrated on Linux):

1.        Edit the rpa_server_docker/docker-compose.yml file.

  1. Edit the rpa_server_docker/dockerfile/envoy-compose/envoy.yaml file.
