Prerequisites for FOSSA On-Prem

This doc only applies for FOSSA on-prem users! Ignore if you use

  • Linux Box with:
    • Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    • Static IP address (accessible to users in your organization)
    • > 16 GB RAM
    • > 80 GB HDD
    • Docker 1.3+ (config'd to use devicemapper over AUFS), Bash 3.2+, curl & tar
    • Port 80 (or whatever configured) exposed in firewall
  • SMTP server

Prepare the following:

  • External IP (accessible to your users) of the box running FOSSA
  • SMTP server host/port
  • Connection details for additional integrations (see guides for GitHub, Bitbucket, JIRA and more...)

Optional prep

For evaluation purposes, FOSSA will ship with a built-in database. However if you wish to scale your usage, you will need to prepare an external database that matches the following requirements:

  • Postgres 9.3+ on a machine with >16 GB RAM, >30 GB HDD
  • Postgres host, port, username & password
  • Configured with the FOSSA postgres extensions specified in the "manual" step of the installation guide
  • Database in Postgres named "fossa", accessible to the user

Make sure all of these endpoints are accessible from the machine running FOSSA.

Once ready, contact support to schedule an installation or ssh into your Ubuntu machine and proceed to install FOSSA.
