Getting started with OpsCaptain


#1

Hello,
Have a few Getting started questions:

– Does OpsCaptain require a blank server and everything is installed afresh?
– If it doesn’t require a blank server, what happens to the existing sites running on the server? I have two websites running - one in python and another in Go.
– Do I need to install docker on my development computer so it can work with OpsCaptain?

thanks,

– Does OpsCaptain require a blank server and everything is installed afresh?
Yes, or at least a server which still has port 80, 443 and port range 2363:2800 still open. Also OpsCaptain will attempt installing Docker on your server and will remove any previously installed versions.

– If it doesn’t require a blank server, what happens to the existing sites running on the server? I have two websites running - one in python and another in Go.
Most likely the required ports are already taken, this setup wouldn’t work with OpsCaptain. You can however migrate the existing apps to OpsCaptain.

– Do I need to install docker on my development computer so it can work with OpsCaptain?
No, you maintain your current workflow in development for the most part.
