    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] [1651669194] Sameroom: [Unknown] yes , can you try migration now

    <<< Still not working

    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] Do i need a special version of mysql
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] gerald@hris:/var/www/html/platform$ mysql --version
    mysql Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.7.37, for Linux (x86_64) using EditLine wrapper
    [Unknown] I see. I will tell you when I discover anything
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] Good morning
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] Is there anyone who can help
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] Should i start the installation all over again ?
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] Please assist

    [Unknown] it’s such a weird thing that we have not seen before Gerald … let’s see if we can find a work around for you .

    What would you like to do with platform? Would you like to develop it or just to run it?

    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] For now i will like to run it
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] and develop other features on it
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] in 2015 i started working on it in Ghana but that was on version 2
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] I need to see the new features on version 3 or 4 and probably test it in our upcoming election
    [David Losada, Ushahidi] I see. An alternative way to get the software running , is to use Docker as a container platform. Is that something you may be familiar with?
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] yes i am familiar with docker
    [David Losada, Ushahidi] mm great!
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] Do you have the installation steps for docker containers
    [David Losada, Ushahidi] the quickest way to get the latest stable version running is to get this repo : https://github.com/ushahidi/platform-release/
    [David Losada, Ushahidi] and run “docker-compose up”
    [David Losada, Ushahidi] this is not the latest code, but it gives you both the API and the frontend up in one go
    [David Losada, Ushahidi] (you were only working with the API so far)
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] my previous installation will not after this
    [David Losada, Ushahidi] there are some more instructions and details in the repository of that repo
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] OK
    [David Losada, Ushahidi] *the readme of that repo :)
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] Sameroom Can i change the port from 80 to 8000
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] the migration had completed on the docker installatioon
    [29:1ywoz-V4I1IKiPouk7sZ0jJKRM6e_DnFvXZLWTnnr4AM] the migration had completed on the docker installation
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] but when i type localhost:8000 it is showing blank page
    [29:1ywoz-V4I1IKiPouk7sZ0jJKRM6e_DnFvXZLWTnnr4AM] but when i type http://localhost:8000 it is showing blank page
    [David Losada, Ushahidi] Gerald, how did you change it to port 8000 ? Probably you found the “ports” section in the docker-compose file. It should look something like : “8000:80" . Then you would need to docker-compose stop your containers and start them again
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] because port 80 is already in use
    [David Losada, Ushahidi] yea, so you would change the first number in the port specification only . The second “80” shouldn’t change as that is on the container side.
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] Succeed in deploying it
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] thanks Sameroom
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] the mobile app failed and i don’t know where to find the .json file to edit it

    [David Losada, Ushahidi] Gerald, did you see this mention here? https://github.com/ushahidi/platform-release/#connecting-the-mobile-app. You would set the SITE_URL variable in your docker-compose.yml file , there is a commented out snippet for it.

    Note that this will not work with localhost, because that URL will be used by the mobile app in your phone to connect. It needs to be a proper address in your local network or the internet.

    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] OK
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] One more thing boss, with the Docker installation everything has the default installation and for me that is a security risk
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] Production deployment is not working which should have allow me to do what i wanted
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] Is it possible to alter the settings in docker-compose.yml and get the system to what you want
    [Gerald Emmanuel Thomas] if, yes how can i add a domain name to the apache file

    Hello. I want to know that are you accepting proposals for technical writers anymore or have you found one??
    I got to know about GSoD very late and I came across your organization I am looking forward to applying for the role. Any luck???? Or am I too late already?
    [Unknown] Hi there IMPranshu! I am happy to hear you are interested about GSoD. Unfortunately we have closed the applications for this year. I wish you good luck and hope you find another organisation to apply to.
