We are working on a documentation on running and maintaining DMX on a server. Check out if your questions are answered by it. If not, please let us know what you miss in there so that we can improve it. Thank you!
- The DMX settings file is not located in
- Starting the dmx.service (DMX - The Context Machine) on my FreedomBox, logs are saying:
** No config.properties found. (from bin/felix.jar)
** org.eclipse.jetty.ssl.password : org.eclipse.jetty.ssl.keypassword : [ERROR] Failed to start Connector: SslSelectChannelConnector@0.0.0.0:8443 (the concect keypassword is not explained in the docs)
** java.io.FileNotFoundException: /var/lib/dmx/.keystore (No such file or directory)
@jpn and I will meet on Tuesday to get DMX intalled on FreedomBox but docs should explain the keytool, keystore and keypassword concepts.
Furthermore, after the installation of The DMX Debian Package, I can’t find a “Systemd unit file”: there is no
/etc/systemd/system/dmx.service. The link to
/lib/systemd/system/dmx.service is missing.
HI @RalfBarkow, thanks for reporting the issues. The Admin Documentation is still incomplete. Apart from the section about the Debian package, the whole rest is written for a DMX that you run from an unzipped download file (e.g. path to settings file). I’ll need a few days to check on the items you mentioned. Stay tuned…
Thanks @silke and no problem. If it’s all right with you, I’ll keep a record of my findings here. I could also make/suggest changes in the dmx-documentation repository directly, and send you pull requests (PR).
@jpn and @RalfBarkow have tried to get DMX to run on FreedomBox. All applications currently on FreedomBox run on a path, not subdomain. The configuration you referenced seems to assume that DMX is running on a subdomain or is the only application on the system. Support for subdomains in FreedomBox is expected to be added by mid-2020.
To run DMX on a FreedomBox, you first need an /etc/apache2/conf-available, see the results of our previous attempts here: dmx-freedombox.conf. Juergen wanted to see if he could make it work with a path and to try putting any rewrite rules under /dmx/.
Maybe with your help, Silke?
For the FreedomBox configuration, this would mean to open the corresponding ports (configure port forwarding and firewalld).
See Issue dmx.host.url ignoring url? for actual status:
At the moment DMX can’t be run in a directory (e.g.
/dmx), only in
