    This HoTo will show you how to install Wendelin inside your own virtual machine.


    • A virtual machine running Debian Buster or Debian Stretch, 64bit
    • 4 GB of RAM
    • At least 20GB of disk space

    Initial setup

    Once you have your virtual machine up and running, run (root permissions are needed):

    root@debian:~# wget http://deploy.nexedi.cn/wendelin-standalone && bash wendelin-standalone

    To check up on the status of your build automatically please run:

    root@debian:~# watch -n 30 erp5-show -s

    This way if something goes wrong you will be notified immediately. The total time for install and setup should be around less than an hour, however it doesn't need any interaction from user.

    When is my Wendelin instance ready?

    You can check if your Wendelin instance is ready using:

    root@debian:~# erp5-show -s

    If your instance is ready the script will printout:

    • Please do get from "erp5-show -s" the IP address of the Wendelin instance then point your browser to it like so https://<some_auto_generated_ip>/erp5 (please note that we intentionally add "erp5" which is Wendelin's root instance url)
    • Please login with username and password already provided by "erp5-show -s" script
