–Install On Ubuntu

You can just copy and paste these commands into a terminal window if this is a new installation of Ubuntu.  This is also a just a suggested installation procedure.  Make any changes you feel would be better.  I recommend following the guide to get things working and then perform any changes after you have confirmed things are working.


  • A DHCP Server
  • Assign your server a static IP
  • Only been test on 64bit Ubuntu 14 and 15


Install Web Application

sudo su
apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys 3FA7E0328081BFF6A14DA29AA6A19B38D3D831EF
echo "deb http://download.mono-project.com/repo/ubuntu xenial main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mono-official.list
apt-get update
apt-get -y install mono-devel libapache2-mod-mono apache2 udpcast liblz4-tool
wget "https://sourceforge.net/projects/clonedeploy/files/CloneDeploy 1.2.0/clonedeploy-1.2.0.tar.gz"
tar xvzf clonedeploy-1.2.0.tar.gz
cd clonedeploy
cp clonedeploy.conf /etc/apache2/sites-available/
cp -r web /var/www/html/clonedeploy
cp -r tftpboot /
ln -s ../../images /tftpboot/proxy/bios/images
ln -s ../../images /tftpboot/proxy/efi32/images
ln -s ../../images /tftpboot/proxy/efi64/images
ln -s ../../kernels /tftpboot/proxy/bios/kernels
ln -s ../../kernels /tftpboot/proxy/efi32/kernels
ln -s ../../kernels /tftpboot/proxy/efi64/kernels
mkdir -p /cd_dp/images
mkdir /cd_dp/resources
mkdir /var/www/.mono
chown -R www-data:www-data /tftpboot /cd_dp /var/www/html/clonedeploy /var/www/.mono
chmod 1777 /tmp
a2ensite clonedeploy
service apache2 restart

Install Database

Create a root database password when prompted

apt-get -y install mysql-server
mysql -u root -p
create database clonedeploy;
mysql -u root -p clonedeploy < cd.sql -v

Open /var/www/html/clonedeploy/web.config with a text editor and change the following values:

xx_marker1_xx to your root database password you created earlier
xx_marker2_xx to some random characters, probably should be a minimum of 8


Install Samba Server

apt-get -y install samba
addgroup cdsharewriters
useradd cd_share_ro
useradd cd_share_rw -G cdsharewriters
adduser www-data cdsharewriters

The following two commands will prompt you to create passwords for the smb share for a read only user and a read write user. Remember these passwords, you will need them again during the Web Interface Initial Setup.

smbpasswd -a cd_share_ro
smbpasswd -a cd_share_rw
echo "[cd_share]
path = /cd_dp
valid users = @cdsharewriters, cd_share_ro
create mask = 02775
directory mask = 02775
guest ok = no
writable = yes
browsable = yes
read list = @cdsharewriters, cd_share_ro
write list = @cdsharewriters
force create mode = 02775
force directory mode = 02775
force group = +cdsharewriters" >> /etc/samba/smb.conf
chown -R www-data:cdsharewriters /cd_dp
chmod -R 2775 /cd_dp
service smbd restart


Install TFTP Server

apt-get -y install tftpd-hpa
echo "TFTP_USERNAME=\"root\"
TFTP_OPTIONS=\"-s\"" > /etc/default/tftpd-hpa
service tftpd-hpa restart
service apache2 restart
