How can I install a bamboo server on an ubuntu virtual private server?

I have ab Ubuntu 14.04 virtual private sever with digital ocean.

I have attempted to follow along the installation instructions for installing a bamboo server on Linux (see https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BAMBOO/Installing+Bamboo+on+Linux ), until I am told to run the setup wizard.

To manage my Ubuntu VPS, I use SSH terminal, and I don't have a graphical user interface.

How do I proceed to configure and install the bamboo server without using the setup wizard?

Hello Daniel,

Thank you for your question.

You will be required to work with iptables in order to make your Bamboo accessible outside your VPS and do the installation from a box with graphical user interface. The same will be required if you want to create projects, plans, application links, linked repositories, ....

You can check which ports are listed on your iptables as per following:

sudo iptables -L

You should be able to find the following listed, since you are SSH your VPS, port 22 should be opened unless you have changed its default port to something else.

iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 22 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 80 -j ACCEPT

After that, you have to add Bamboo's Connector port which can be found under "<bamboo-install>/conf/server.xml". By default, Bamboo works on port 8085

sudo iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport 8085 -j ACCEPT

Now, you should be able to hit Bamboo from your web browser under http://<ip-to-vps>:8085/<context-path>

Kind regards,
