Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any important configuration changes I should make?

If you wish to access your new CKAN instance using a domain name and not the IP address of your instance then there is a key configuration change you will need to make.

Once you have decided on a domain or sub-domain to use and have added a DNS record to point that name to the IP of your instance, follow these steps:

  1. Login to the CKAN instance via SSH.
  2. Open /etc/ckan/default/production.ini in a text editor
  3. Look for the ckan.site_url variable
  4. Update the URL by removing the IP address and replacing it with the domain you want to us.
  5. Save the file
  6. Restart Apache (service httpd restart)
