AWS OpsWorks, Meteor, Docker Deployment


#42

Ahh looks like the cordova repository itself is having problems…hopefully that gets fixed soon.

Otherwise now I’ve finally got opsworks up and running, however my android app is not pulling in the latest site (its using a cache one). Do I need to add http://meteor.local to my mobile.settings as one of the urls to allow access?


#43

So, I got this up and going and I thought all was well. However, I’ve had some reports of some people getting 503’s. I used a wildcard in my VIRTUAL_HOST env var *.mydomain.com. WGET seems to confirm something’s amiss:

wget mydomain.com
--2015-04-15 22:31:27--  http://mydomain.com/
Resolving mydomain.com (mydomain.com)... 52.8.x.y
Connecting to mydomain.com (mydomain.com)|52.8.x.y|:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 503 Service Temporarily Unavailable
2015-04-15 22:31:27 ERROR 503: Service Temporarily Unavailable.

Can anyone explain why this might be happening?

Also, I’d like to redir all www. requests to just mydomain.com. I assume I’d need to fork the nginx-proxy repo and make changes there? Or can I just inject the redir in the chef recipes?

TIA for any tips/advice!


#44

anyone getting this problem while pushing to docker hub?


#45

@skwasha It looks like you are not using any SSL certificate. Which repo are you using your chef recipes from? Also, if you want to redirect www requests, you can create a custom template from nginx-proxy that will have a 301 redirect in it.

@arjunrajjain not sure, but it looks like it’s an issue with Dockerhub itself?


#46

The SSL certs are there and named mydomain.com.crt and key as stated in the docs… It redirects to SSL version of the site properly. I’m using your recipes.

I ended up changing the VIRTUAL_HOST entry to specify mydomain.com,www.mydomain.com and now it seems to be working. Not sure what was wrong when I had the wildcard in the VIRTUAL_HOST.


#47

Anyone having problems with Cordova? For some reason my app is not refreshing when I deploy new applications, its using a cached version when I first deployed the app to the app store.


#48

are you referring to the docker image? I was just gonna ask about that myself… Deploys seemed to be using an older image. I had to retag the latest and change the Env Vars to use the new tag to force a deploy of a newer image. This only seems to have cropped up in the last day or so. Was working fine previously.

#49

@jkatzen having some issues starting a new server in on of my Docker stacks. I am trying to start the second instance in the stack and seems like it can’t find a file related to the Papertrail setup. Any ideas, let me know, please?

Here’s an excerpt from the logs:

#50

@jkatzen I did remove the space out of my layer name and it seems to have run now. I am not 100% sure this was the issue as I did have those transient issues in the past.


#53

the deploys themself are working fine…but what is loaded on Cordova is not (its using the cached version of as when the app was updated on the appstore) -


#54

@jkatzen back on this old topic re: " deploy a new instance that is not hooked up to your DNS" - does this need to be a separate app with a separate “cluster” configuration?

ie if I deploy “app1” to the instance, it’ll get added to the “app1” cluster, right? Not sure if any issues with this? Or should I have an “app2” that I deploy with a separate Cluster db and then once that’s up and running swap it?

Alternatively, I could have 2 stacks for app1 & 2 respectively.

So I think 3 options:

  1. deploy to new instance with same app/cluster config - then swap Elastic IP to point to new instance
  2. deploy to new instance with different app/cluster config - then swap Elastic IP to point to new instance
  3. deploy to separate stack with different app/cluster config - then swap Elastic IP to point to new instance

Any recommendations?


#55

You want to deploy a new instance to the same app - you don’t have to do anything special as long as the cluster configuration is setup properly.


#56

@jkatzen thanks. I am still getting random issues, so perhaps my setup is messed up.

UPDATE to the info below:
I think I know what happened and it had to do with swapping the IPs.
eg Server 1 - IP-addr-A (AWS dyamic address)
swap Server 2 to IP-addr-B (Elastic IP)

Somehere in the nginx settings it’s still referring to IP-addr-A which now no longer exists as it was originall a dynamic AWS IP.

Could that be possible?

------------orginal below ---------

Folk are experience sporadic “disconnection” and I see the following in the logs:

May 06 09:49:03 Buzzy-Docker-buzzy1 nginx-proxy:  nginx.1    | 2015/05/05 23:49:03 [error] 26#0: *5152 upstream prematurely closed connection while reading response header from upstream, client: <someones IP>, server: *.buzzy.buzz, request: "GET /_timesync HTTP/1.1", upstream: "http://<and internal amazon IP egg 172.something>/_timesync", host: "buzzy.buzz", referrer: "https://buzzy.buzz/l" 

I don’t have a server with the internal ip of <and internal amazon IP egg 172.something> and I don’t see it listed in my cluster database.

The weird things is, I don’t think I have changed any of my app settings when I deploy. So not sure why it’s not working?

I am not sure if this is related, but sometimes in my deploy logs I see the following:

#58

Hey adam - sorry I’ve been less responsive lately; been lurking a bit less. In any case - I think your instinct is probably right. To amend it, what you could probably do is run the chef recipe that will re-launch your nginx server on the instance after you swap the IP’s.


#59

@jkatzen thanks. Yep, yet to try that out as I am now using the failover approach. I may switch back to that depending on how long that recipe takes to run.


#60

@jkatzen @arunoda how goes? Hoping for some quick help please - where is the bundle installed in the docker container pls?

I need to set the BUNDLE_PATH for this package I am using. Their hint is it would be something like ‘/var/www/app/bundle’

Please see their ‘tldr;’ section for more info, if needed


#61

If you’re using the new meteord image to build yours, then I think it’s in the /built_app directory.

Here’s the script that bundles the meteor application:

Thanks @jkatzen much appreciated

Update: I rolled back to cluster 1.6.4 and this error goes away. - I have logged here https://github.com/meteorhacks/cluster/issues/67

Hi, Anyone having any recent issues with this… not sure of meteord changed again, I don’t think I have changed anything and I am now getting the following issues:
