Full Description

EasyCKAN v2.6 Beta.1

Easiest way to install the CKAN platform.

Compatible with all Linux x64 distros.

What Is Included In Easy CKAN?

1. Requirements

Your server / virtual machine must meet the following requirements:

  • Linux x64 kernel version 3.10 or higher
  • 2.00 GB of RAM
  • 6.00 GB of available disk space
  • Nothing running over ports: 80, 5000

It is generally better to have a completely clean install of Ubuntu to work from, it's not required.

2. How To Install

Run the following commands on your server / virtual machine:

# Not avaliable yet...
# Check dev mode below...

3. Easy CKAN Command Line

The Easy CKAN command line is the best way to interact with your CKAN installation.

3.1. Start Server - Development Mode

To run the server in a development enviroment, run:

# Development enviroment
sudo easyckan dev # Avaliable over port 5000

3.2. Deploy - Production Mode

Once you have finished development and are ready to push your changes into a production environment, run:

# Production enviroment
sudo easyckan deploy # Avaliable over port 80

3.3. Create admin user

Replace "my_username" with the username you want.

easyckan exec paster sysadmin add my_username --config=/etc/ckan/default/development.ini

3.4. Enter on VirtualEnv

If you want to run custom commands and use bash on CKAN VirtualEnv.

easyckan exec

3.5. Enter on PostgreSQL CLI

Enter on psql.

easyckan exec psql -h ckan-postgres -Upostgres

4. Questions? Support?

If you have any question or need support, talk with me at at channel #easyckan.

If you have any questions, either raise an issue here on GitHub or send me an email:

Where are my files?

All files are located on default content. Check CKAN documentation for more information:

/etc/easyckan   # EasyCKAN files
/etc/ckan/      # CKAN settings files
/usr/lib/ckan/  # Main CKAN files and plugins/extensions
/var/lib/ckan/  # CKAN upload files


I want to add some additional improvements:

  • Feature: Uninstaller
  • Feature: Interface plugin installations
  • Improvement: Better bash interface

  • For Ubuntu/Debian: sudo apt-get install -y curl
