This section lists our recommended hardware and software requirements to install and run the ARDC RDA Registry Software:
- OS: Linux - RHEL/CentOS 6 or 6.5
- A minimum of 60GB disk space. (Large databases with hundreds of thousands of entries can require up to 120GB+)
- At minimum of 4GB of memory.
- Xeon(R) CPU E5-2670 @ 2.6GHz processor (or similar)
Setting up a server environment for the RDA Registry Software running on CentOS 6.5.
The server will require seboolean httpd_can_network_connect to be turn on, so we should make sure that this configuration is in place with
getsebool -a | grep httpd_can_network_connect
Make sure httpd_can_network_connect is turn on with
setsebool httpd_can_network_connect true
It is advisable to turn selinux into permissive state, and not turn off completely for security reasons.
