OpenStack Essex Installation Walkthrough from Scratch (Part3)

OpenStack Essex Installation Walkthrough from Scratch (Part3)

Dashboard Installation

/*Install packages
$apt-get install libapache2-mod-wsgi openstack-dashboard

/*Restart Apache
$restart apache
$service apache2 restart

/*Connect to the Dashboard web page.
http://localhost or http://x.x.x.x

So easy a caveman (me) can do it. Not really it is a pain to get it working smoothly but mainly for me was lack of good directions and learning the pieces and parts to something a vast as this project.

For troubleshooting refer to the troubleshooting this post.

      Hi Barabra,
      Take a look that all of your processes are running. i.e. ‘ps -ea | grep nova’ and ‘nova-manager service list’.
      A great resource for you would be the OpenStack irc channel. There are folks there that know it inside and out.
