Setting Up a Web Server

To host an internal repository, you must install or use an existing Web server on an internal host that is reachable by the Cloudera Manager host, and then download the repository files to the Web server host.

The examples on this page use Apache HTTP Server as the Web server. If you already have a Web server in your organization, you can skip to Downloading and Publishing the Parcel Repository.
  1. Install Apache HTTP Server:
    RHEL / CentOS
    sudo yum install httpd
    sudo apt-get install httpd
  2. Edit the Apache HTTP Server configuration file (/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf by default) to add or edit the following line in the <IfModule mime_module> section:
        AddType application/x-gzip .gz .tgz .parcel

    If the <IfModule mime_module> section does not exist, you can add it in its entirety as follows:

    <IfModule mime_module>
        # TypesConfig points to the file containing the list of mappings from
        # filename extension to MIME-type.
        TypesConfig /etc/mime.types
        # AddType allows you to add to or override the MIME configuration
        # file specified in TypesConfig for specific file types.
        #AddType application/x-gzip .tgz
        # AddEncoding allows you to have certain browsers uncompress
        # information on the fly. Note: Not all browsers support this.
        #AddEncoding x-compress .Z
        #AddEncoding x-gzip .gz .tgz
        # If the AddEncoding directives above are commented-out, then you
        # probably should define those extensions to indicate media types:
        AddType application/x-compress .Z
        AddType application/x-gzip .gz .tgz .parcel
        # AddHandler allows you to map certain file extensions to "handlers":
        # actions unrelated to filetype. These can be either built into the server
        # or added with the Action directive (see below)
        # To use CGI scripts outside of ScriptAliased directories:
        # (You will also need to add "ExecCGI" to the "Options" directive.)
        #AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
        # For type maps (negotiated resources):
        #AddHandler type-map var
        # Filters allow you to process content before it is sent to the client.
        # To parse .shtml files for server-side includes (SSI):
        # (You will also need to add "Includes" to the "Options" directive.)
        AddType text/html .shtml
        AddOutputFilter INCLUDES .shtml
  3. Start Apache HTTP Server:
    RHEL 7
    sudo systemctl start httpd
    Ubuntu 18
    sudo systemctl start apache2
