Deploy production server on Ubuntu 14.04


  1. Setup deploy user
  2. Install Ruby
  3. Install MySQL
  4. Install Redis
  5. Install RabbitMQ
  6. Install Bitcoind
  7. Install Nginx with Passenger
  8. Install JavaScript Runtime
  9. Install ImageMagick
  10. Configure Peatio

1. Setup deploy user

Create (if it doesn’t exist) deploy user, and assign it to the sudo group:

sudo adduser deploy
sudo usermod -a -G sudo deploy

Re-login as deploy user

2. Install Ruby

Make sure your system is up-to-date.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

Installing rbenv using a Installer

sudo apt-get install git-core curl zlib1g-dev build-essential \
                     libssl-dev libreadline-dev libyaml-dev libsqlite3-dev sqlite3 \
                     libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev \
                     python-software-properties libffi-dev

git clone git:// .rbenv
echo 'export PATH="$HOME/.rbenv/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.bashrc
echo 'eval "$(rbenv init -)"' >> ~/.bashrc
exec $SHELL

git clone git:// ~/.rbenv/plugins/ruby-build
echo 'export PATH="$HOME/.rbenv/plugins/ruby-build/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.bashrc
exec $SHELL

Install Ruby through rbenv:

rbenv install 2.2.1
rbenv global 2.2.1

Install bundler

echo "gem: --no-ri --no-rdoc" > ~/.gemrc
gem install bundler
rbenv rehash

3. Install MySQL

sudo apt-get install mysql-server  mysql-client  libmysqlclient-dev

4. Install Redis

Be sure to install the latest stable Redis, as the package in the distro may be a bit old:

sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:rwky/redis
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install redis-server

5. Install RabbitMQ

Please follow instructions here:

curl | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-add-repository 'deb testing main'
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install rabbitmq-server

sudo rabbitmq-plugins enable rabbitmq_management
sudo service rabbitmq-server restart
wget http://localhost:15672/cli/rabbitmqadmin
chmod +x rabbitmqadmin
sudo mv rabbitmqadmin /usr/local/sbin

6. Install Bitcoind

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install bitcoind


mkdir -p ~/.bitcoin
touch ~/.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf
vim ~/.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf

Insert the following lines into the bitcoin.conf, and replce with your username and password.


# If run on the test network instead of the real bitcoin network

# You must set rpcuser and rpcpassword to secure the JSON-RPC api
# Please make rpcpassword to something secure, `5gKAgrJv8CQr2CGUhjVbBFLSj29HnE6YGXvfykHJzS3k` for example.
# Listen for JSON-RPC connections on <port> (default: 8332 or testnet: 18332)

# Notify when receiving coins
walletnotify=/usr/local/sbin/rabbitmqadmin publish routing_key=peatio.deposit.coin payload='{"txid":"%s", "channel_key":"satoshi"}'

Start bitcoin


7. Installing Nginx & Passenger

Install Phusion’s PGP key to verify packages

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys 561F9B9CAC40B2F7

Add HTTPS support to APT

sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https ca-certificates

Add the passenger repository. Note that this only works for Ubuntu 14.04. For other versions of Ubuntu, you have to add the appropriate repository according to Section 2.3.1 of this link.

sudo add-apt-repository 'deb trusty main'
sudo apt-get update

Install nginx and passenger

sudo apt-get install nginx-extras passenger

Next, we need to update the Nginx configuration to point Passenger to the version of Ruby that we’re using. You’ll want to open up /etc/nginx/nginx.conf in your favorite editor,

sudo vim /etc/nginx/nginx.conf

find the following lines, and uncomment them:

passenger_root /usr/lib/ruby/vendor_ruby/phusion_passenger/locations.ini;
passenger_ruby /usr/bin/ruby;

update the second line to read:

passenger_ruby /home/deploy/.rbenv/shims/ruby;

8. Install JavaScript Runtime

A JavaScript Runtime is needed for Asset Pipeline to work. Any runtime will do but Node.js is recommended.

curl -sL | sudo bash -
sudo apt-get install nodejs

9. Install ImageMagick

sudo apt-get -y install imagemagick gsfonts

10. Setup production environment variable

echo "export RAILS_ENV=production" >> ~/.bashrc
source ~/.bashrc
Clone the Source
mkdir -p ~/peatio
git clone git:// ~/peatio/current
cd peatio/current

# Install dependency gems
bundle install --without development test --path vendor/bundle
Configure Peatio

Prepare configure files


Setup Pusher

  • Peatio depends on Pusher. A development key/secret pair for development/test is provided in config/application.yml(uncomment to use). PLEASE USE IT IN DEVELOPMENT/TEST ENVIRONMENT ONLY!

More details to visit pusher official website

# uncomment Pusher related settings
vim config/application.yml

Setup bitcoind rpc endpoint

# replace username:password and port with the one you set in
# username and password should only contain letters and numbers, do not use email as username
# bitcoin.conf in previous step
vim config/currencies.yml

Config database settings

vim config/database.yml

# Initialize the database and load the seed data
bundle exec rake db:setup

Precompile assets

bundle exec rake assets:precompile

Run Daemons

# start all daemons
bundle exec rake daemons:start

# or start daemon one by one
bundle exec rake daemon:matching:start

# Daemon trade_executor can be run concurrently, e.g. below
# line will start four trade executors, each with its own logfile.
# Default to 1.
TRADE_EXECUTOR=4 rake daemon:trade_executor:start

# You can do the same when you start all daemons:
TRADE_EXECUTOR=4 rake daemons:start

When daemons don’t work, check log/#{daemon name}.rb.output or log/peatio:amqp:#{daemon name}.output for more information (suffix is ‘.output’, not ‘.log’).

SSL Certificate setting

For security reason, you must setup SSL Certificate for production environment, if your SSL Certificated is been configured, please change the following line at config/environments/production.rb

config.force_ssl = true


sudo rm /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/default
sudo ln -s /home/deploy/peatio/current/config/nginx.conf /etc/nginx/conf.d/peatio.conf
sudo service nginx restart

Liability Proof

# Add this rake task to your crontab so it runs regularly
RAILS_ENV=production rake solvency:liability_proof
