Activities Plus Install FAQ¶
If you are following the HCL install documentation, these notes need to be applied during the relevant sections. We recommend using our install documentation instead.
There are also some more notes and insights from one of our partners which is a great read.
Installing Activities Plus services¶
- Please see our documentation and the latest chart
Configuring IBM HTTP Server as reverse proxy¶
If you do not have them enabled, you will need to enable the following modules by uncommenting them (remove the '#'):
LoadModule proxy_module modules/mod_proxy.so LoadModule proxy_connect_module modules/mod_proxy_connect.so LoadModule proxy_ftp_module modules/mod_proxy_ftp.so LoadModule proxy_http_module modules/mod_proxy_http.so LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so
If you have not specified earlier (such as during other component-pack app installs), please set
ProxyPreserveHost Onbefore the Huddo Boards section in the VirtualHost
Updating the Activities Plus configuration file¶
- Please use this boards-cp.yaml NOT the one supplied with the component pack.
Migrating Activities data¶
The helm upgrade command needs to be run from the directory containing boards-cp.yaml and the correct command is:
helm upgrade kudos-boards-cp-activity-migration path_to_helm_charts/kudos-boards-cp-activity-migration-1.0.0-20191120-214007.tgz -i -f ./boards-cp.yaml --namespace connections --recreate-pods
helm upgrade kudos-boards-cp-activity-migration /root/microservices_connections/hybridcloud/helmbuilds/kudos-boards-cp-activity-migration-1.0.0-20191120-214007.tgz -i -f ./boards-cp.yaml --namespace connections --recreate-pods
Duplicate name MONGO_HOST¶
When (re)deploying the Boards CP Chart you may see this warning:
W0612 09:17:16.153629 21276 warnings.go:70] spec.template.spec.containers.env.name: duplicate name "MONGO_HOST"
This is an expected behaviour. Connections 8 added a new hostname for Mongo v5. Our v1.1.0 helm chart uses this in addition to the old hostname to maintain backwards compatibility. This warning can be safely ignored.
