    How To Deploy Software on a Webrunner

    This document will show how to deploy a software release on a SlapOS Webrunner. The process can be used for any software available on the SlapOS repository. Note, that the Webrunner is behaves like a SlapProxy (see SlapOS architecture) in that it contains a "mini SlapOS Master" that can provide a single software. Instantiating a Webrunner thus means, creating a smaller encapsulated system for then deploying another software inside. This is a useful approach for developing or hosting simple software releases.

    Build Status

    Webrunner Interface - Deployment Status

    Once saved the deployment of the software will begin. Deployment can take anywhere from a few minutes (simple software, already compiled) to several hours. The log panel will inform of any errors or warnings encountered during deployment.

    Build Finished

    Webrunner Interface - Deployment Finished

    The top indicator Building State will show the result of (re-)building the software release. If it fails, errors are likley in software.cfg. The bottom indicator shows the Running State which indicates whether an instance could successfully be deployed from the software release. Errors in this part are likley to be found in instance.cfg.in.

    Once both indicators switch to green, the software is deployed and ready to use.

    Inspect Services

    Webrunner Interface - Inspect Services

    Click on Services in the subheader to open the list of running services. The services defined in the software.cfg file should be running.

    Inspect Connection Parameters

    Webrunner Interface - Inspect Connection Parameters

    The connection parameters tab displays the parameters defined in the software.cfg.
