Adventures in installing and testing Fossology on Ubuntu 18.04.3, based on (and cloning from):

Log in as default fossy/fossy.

Quick start

Possibly unnecessary steps identified:

$ sudo utils/fo-installdeps
$ [sudo apt install lsb-release]

Don't need to install composer, it's already in /usr/local/bin/composer.

$ sudo make install
$ sudo /usr/local/lib/fossology/fo-postinstall

This apparently “tests” the install, but I'm not sure what it represents:

$ sudo /usr/local/etc/fossology/mods-enabled/scheduler/agent/fo_scheduler -t

And start:

$ sudo /etc/init.d/fossology start

and browse to http://localhost/repo.


Or just:

$ docker run -p 8089:80 fossology/fossology

and browse to http://localhost:8089/repo
