Users can install Shipa on any existing Kubernetes cluster (version 1.10.x and newer), and Shipa leverages Helm charts for the install.
Below are the steps required to have Shipa installed in your existing Kubernetes cluster:
1. Create a namespace where the Shipa services should be installed
NAMESPACE=shipa-system kubectl create namespace $NAMESPACE
2. Create the values.override.yaml with the Admin user and password that will be used for Shipa
Shipa requires you to use a minimum password length of 7 or more characters.
cat > values.override.yaml << EOF auth: adminUser: admin-email-here adminPassword: admin-password-here EOF
3. Add Shipa helm repo
helm repo add shipa-charts https://shipa-charts.storage.googleapis.com
4. Install Shipa
helm install shipa shipa-charts/shipa -n $NAMESPACE --timeout=1000s -f values.override.yaml
Static vs Dynamic IPs
By default, during the install, Shipa uses dynamic public IP set by the cloud provider. If preferred, static IP can be used instead by applying the optional parameter below when using Helm install:
The output of the install should look like the following:
NAME: shipa LAST DEPLOYED: <Deployment Date> NAMESPACE: shipa-system STATUS: deployed REVISION: 1
After running the Helm install command, the install process will take several minutes, depending on the Cluster Node configuration.
During this process, containers will be created and restarted until all Shipa related services are running successfully.
When you see the Shipa Dashboard service running, which should be called dashboard-web-1-x, the install is complete.
helm uninstall shipa uninstalls shipa except it leaves out MongoDB persistence volume claim so users can take a backup of the previous installation.
If you are creating a new installation on the same cluster and namespace used by the previous shipa installation, please delete persistence volume claims leftover by previously uninstalled shipa instance.
