Revision history [back]

If you just want to try out Swift the easiest way possible, I recommend using Packstack. Tempauth doesn't have much documentation and it's not likely to change. Another good way to get started with Swift is to follow the SAIO installation for development.

To install Swift on a single machine using Packstack:

$ yum install openstack-packstack
$ packstack --gen-answer-file=swift.ans
$ vi swift.ans

Change the answers to 'n' for everything except Swift, Keystone, MySQL (used for Keystone) and the clients.

$ packstack --answer-file=swift.ans
$ source keystone_admin
$ swift list
