Landscape server from scratch
Setting up an ubuntu landscape on Ubuntu 16.04 from a fresh install
I am starting this with a brand new VPS.
First I run this:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:landscape/17.03
sudo apt update
sudo apt install landscape-server-quickstart
To add the PPA, update my sources and then install the landscape server
At this point the server should be running, but for me it wasn’t.
Running dpkg-reconfigure showed the error was missing SSL certs, so I did the following to setup certbot.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:certbot/certbot
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python-certbot-apache
I then ran the following to start setting up SSL certificates.
certbot --apache certonly
To let landscape see the new certificates I ran the following commands
ln -s /etc/letsencrypt/live/*/fullchain.pem /etc/ssl/certs/landscape_server.pem
ln -s /etc/letsencrypt/live/*/privkey.pem /etc/ssl/private/landscape_server.key
I then re-ran dpkg-reconfigure to try setup again
I could then navigate to my server address, and use it to setup my landscape server.
However none of my servers appeared to be able to ping, so I had to disable the default apache site
service apache2 reload
There are a few things that need to be setup after the system is running
Running the following commands sets up a firewall and only allows SSH, HTTP and HTTPS through
apt-get install ufw
ufw allow ssh
ufw allow http
ufw allow https
To make certs auto renew add this to your cron jobs using
0 0 * * * certbot renew
