K3S

Playbook Path: ansible/playbooks/install_k3s.yml

This playbook provides an easy way to install Browsertrix Cloud on a Linux box (tested on Rocky Linux 9). It automatically sets up Browsertrix with Let's Encrypt certificates.

Requirements

To run this ansible playbook, you need to:

  • Have a server / VPS where Browsertrix will run.
  • Configure a DNS A Record to point at your server's IP address.
  • Make sure SSH is working, with a sudo user: ssh your-user@your-domain
  • Install Ansible on your local machine (the control machine).

  • Clone the repo:

    git clone https://github.com/webrecorder/browsertrix-cloud.git
    cd browsertrix-cloud
    

  • Optional: Create a copy of the [inventory directory] and name it what you like (alternatively edit the sample files in place)

    cp -r ansible/inventory/sample-k3s ansible/inventory/my-deployment
    

  • Look at the configuration options and modify them to match your setup

  • Change the hosts IP address in your just created inventory

  • You may need to make modifications to the playbook itself based on your configuration. The playbook lists sections that can be removed or changed based on whether you'd like to install a multi-node or single-node k3s installation for your Browsertrix Cloud deployment. By default the playbook assumes you'll run in a single-node environment deploying directly to localhost

  • Run the playbook:

    ansible-playbook -i inventory/my-deployment/hosts.ini install_k3s.yml
    

Upgrading

  1. Run git pull

  2. Run the playbook:

    ansible-playbook -i inventory/hosts install_k3s.yml -t helm_upgrade
