This guide was written for Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS.  You can expect some differences for other versions.


  • A DHCP Server
  • Assign your server a static IP

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 1.3.0/clonedeploy-1.3.0.tar.gz"
tar xvzf clonedeploy-1.3.0.tar.gz
cd clonedeploy
cp clonedeploy.conf /etc/apache2/sites-available/
mkdir /var/www/html/clonedeploy
cp -r frontend /var/www/html/clonedeploy
cp -r api /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

Change cduser and mypass to something else.

apt-get -y install mysql-server

Create a root database password when prompted

mysql -u root -p
create database clonedeploy;
CREATE USER 'cduser'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'mypass';
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON clonedeploy.* TO 'cduser'@'localhost';
mysql -u root -p clonedeploy < cd.sql -v

If an error comes up about line 1929 it can be ignored.
Open /var/www/html/clonedeploy/api/Web.config with a text editor and change the following values:

xx_marker1_xx to your cduser database password you created earlier
On that same line change Uid=root to Uid=cduser
xx_marker2_xx to some random characters(a-z and numeric only), 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
