Mount the Space Storage Volume¶
The toplevel directory
/spacedata contains the mount points for all space
volumes. By default, the mount point
vol01 has already been created by the
td-hostserver RPM package. Note that it must be owned by the user that the
Apache HTTP Server runs under (usually
You need to create a dedicated file system that provides the requirements outlined in chapter Storage Requirements.
Mount the file system and create the respective mount entry in
to enable automatic mounting of the file system at bootup. Please consult your
Operating System documentation for details on how to perform this step.
The space volume’s file system must be mounted to
/spacedata, to make it possible to mount additional volumes
/spacedata directory, if required.
Installing SSL certificates¶
The default Apache HTTP Server installation ships with self-signed SSL
certificates for testing purposes. We strongly recommend to purchase and
install proper SSL certificates and keys and to adjust the configuration in
/etc/httpd/conf.d/ssl.conf accordingly before moving the server into
The exact installation process depends on how you obtain or create the SSL key and certificate, please refer to the respective installation instructions provided by your certificate issuer.
Starting the Host Server Instance¶
After all configuration steps have been performed, we can start the TeamDrive Services to conclude the initial installation/configuration.
To activate the
td-hostserver background task you have to
start the service using the provided init script.
The configuration file
/etc/td-hosting.conf defines how this process is
run. You usually don’t have to modify these settings.
To start the
td-hostserver program, use the
service command as user
[root@hostserver ~]# service td-hostserver start Starting TeamDrive Hosting Services: [ OK ]
status option to the
service command to verify that the
service has started:
[root@hostserver ~]# service td-hostserver status yvvad (pid 2506) is running...
td-hostserver does not start (process
yvvad is not running), check
the log file
/var/log/td-hostserver.log for errors. See chapter
Troubleshooting for details.
Starting the Apache HTTP Server¶
Now the Apache HTTP Server can be started, which provides the TeamDrive Host
Server functionality (via
mod_pspace) as well as access to the TeamDrive
Hosting Service Administration Console and API (via
You can start the service manually using the following command:
[root@hostserver ~]# service httpd start
At this point, the Host Server’s web server is answering incoming requests from any web client that can connect to its address. For security purposes, you should not make it accessible from the public Internet until you have concluded the initial configuration, e.g. by blocking external accesses using a firewall.
Check the log file
for startup messages and possible errors:
[notice] mod_yvva 1.2.0 (May 5 2015 11:06:52) loaded [notice] Logging (=error) to: /var/log/mod_yvva.log [notice] Apache/2.2.15 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.15 OpenSSL/1.0.1e-fips configured -- resuming normal operations [notice] mod_pspace 1.6.17 Loaded; Build May 6 2015 12:42:39; Crash-Reporting-Disabled
Please consult chapter Troubleshooting if there is an error when starting the service.
You may observe Admin API Errors like the following one:
Admin API, Error loading parameters: Host Server setup has not been completed
These errors can be ignored at this stage. They are caused by the fact that the Host Server has not been configured and registered with a Registration Server yet. This step will be described in the following chapter.
