Pour les instructions en Français : https://gofast-docs.readthedocs.io/fr/latest/docs-gofast-technical/gofast-community-install.html
If you have problems, you can ask some help on our Community forums: https://community.ceo-vision.com
After installation, don’t forget to check if updates are available in the menu (your environment must have internet access) or directly
Instructions (for AWS)¶
Instantiate GoFAST then go to the Configuration section
Don’t forget to choose
default “Security Group” to allow 22 (ssh) and 443 (https) inbound trafic
Instructions (from image)¶
–Step 1: Download the image https://www.ceo-vision.com/en/content/gofast-community-ged-plateforme-collaborative-opensource (.ova, …)
–Step 2: Start the instance on your hypervisor (VMWare, …)
GoFAST is an “Enterprise Grade” platform and needs a server (mini 2vcpu,4GB RAM,SSD if possible). The use of a Desktop PC with VirtualBox is not recommanded and it is possible to get timeouts at the first access and at the end of the configuration. A simple page refresh should solve this.
–Step 3: Login in the VM and launch
netui to configure the network (fix IP address, gateway, …)
To login in console mode to the VM :
login : root
password : @C0mmunity! (with a 0 not O)
The keyboard is at the beginning in FR mode (French) which can pose problem when you enter the password with a QWERTY keyboard.
root password will be changed by the one setup during the configuration process (see below)
–Step 4: Enter
https://your_ip_address and configure the platform.
To access the platform via an FQDN, please configure your DNS or
After going to the IP address, a configuration page is displayed, containing 4 steps:
–La configuration du nouveau nom de domaine
-Configuration of SSL certificate
-Configuration of SMTP server
-The configuration of plateform administrator account
Once those 4 steps completed, a page is displayed with a summary. If everything is correct, confirm the configuration.
Step 1 : Domain Name Configuration¶
On this screen you will describe every part of the FQDN of GoFAST, ex.
- New Sub-Domain : This is the subdomain of the GoFAST, ex.
- New Domain : This is usualy the domain of your organisation ex.
- New extension : This is the TLD, the last part of the url ex.
Step 2 : SSL Certificate Configuration¶
At this step you will have 2 configuraiton possibilities, use your own certificates (recommended) or create self-signed ones.
- The first option (recommended) is to upload your own SSL certificates :
- the public key of your certificate
- the private key
- For the second option you must provide :
- State or Province
- Organization unit
- Web site name
- E-mail address
Step 3 : SMTP Server configuration¶
This third step will help you to configure the SMTP server used by GoFAST to send emails. The required fields are :
- SMTP Server :
- Username :
- Password :
- Security : None (without security), TLS (….), SSL (….)
- SMTP Port :
- Recipient address :
Step 4 : Creation of administrator user¶
This step will define the ‘administrator’ account who will have access to several additional configurations once the GoFAST instance is started. You must choose the login, password and email address of this administrative account.
It is not possible to choose ‘admin’ which is a reserved account
Step 5 : Configuration confirmation¶
Please review carefully all fields and validate.
After clicking on “Finish Configuration” you will not be able to come back to the previous steps, please check every fields before submitting
Several technical operations will occur as well as several services restart, this can take more or less time depending of the server capacities
If you generated a self-signed SSL certificate, you will need to open another page with the same IP address to add the exception to the browser again. After adding this exception, immediately close this new page and return to your GoFAST loading page.
Let’s start !¶
You must create several users and collaboratives spaces (and sub-spaces).
The spaces can be of different types, “Organization” (business units, …), “Groups” (projects, …), “Extranet” (partners, customers, …). See the online documentation here : https://gofast-docs.readthedocs.io/en/latest/docs-gofast-users/doc-gofast-guide-utilisateurs.html#gerer-un-espace-collaboratif-groupe
In the sub-spaces created, add members that must access the content of this space. Add more sub-spaces if needed.
Add content using drag&drop into the “GoFAST File Browser” (file browser)
You are now ready to start !
