I am starting to experiment with the docker image. While I am doing so, I will write step-by-step instructions. I have no previous experience of Docker and little knowledge of Tryton, so I will need help.
The following is a starting point. Would you like me to put this somewhere official?
How to use the Tryton Docker image
First install Docker
- Install Docker - e.g. on Linux with apt
sudo apt install docker.io
Pull the Tryton image
sudo docker pull tryton/tryton
- Do not know why this had to be done as
sudo. Otherwise, I got an error.
Following the brief instructions on
“Start a PostgreSQL instance”
sudo docker run --name tryton-postgres -e POSTGRES_PASSWORD=mysecretpassword -e POSTGRES_DB=tryton -d postgres
- Again, don’t know why I need
“Setup the database”
sudo docker run --link tryton-postgres:postgres -it tryton/tryton trytond-admin -d tryton --all
- The following messages will appear and you should enter the details:
"admin" email for "tryton": firstname.lastname@example.org
- “admin” password for “tryton”: a_strong_password
“Start a Tryton instance”
sudo docker run --name tryton -p 8000:8000 --link tryton postgres:postgres -d tryton/tryton
- Don’t know why I have to
"You can connect to Tryton using
- Use your browser to open
- A dialogue will open, enter:
- User name:
- A password dialogue will appear.
- Enter the admin password you created when setting up the database (above).
- You can logout from the top left icon.
“Start a Tryton cron instance”
This is the dedicate cron part of the server (
sudo docker run --name tryton-cron --link tryton-postgres:postgres -d tryton/tryton trytond-cron -d tryton
- Same question about
There in a note on the Docker page that might be of interest if you know Docker.
" Since the 4.6 series, if COMMAND starts with a
- , it is appended as argument to the default COMMAND. To see all arguments available run:"
$ docker run --rm -ti tryton/tryton --help
Restarting containers after shutdown
On the Linux system I used the docker containers are available to all users who have
You can view all currently installed containers using:
sudo docker container ls --all
sudo docker ps --all
To start Tryton you would need to start the three containers associated with it:
sudo docker start tryton-postgres tryton tryton-cron
The order above is important in the sense that tryton-postgres must be started before the other two (as they need to have it running in order to connect to it).
The above is a start. Could you tell me if the docker image is for experimenting with or can it be used as a basis of a real system?
