Up to here; (

And this doesn't work;

$ openstack user create --domain default --password-prompt glance

The error message is;

"Missing value auth-url required for auth plugin password"





I've just created the environment variables with the following commands;

sudo nano ./admin-openrc


export OS_USER_DOMAIN_NAME=Default
export OS_PROJECT_NAME=admin
export OS_USERNAME=admin
export OS_PASSWORD=password
export OS_AUTH_URL=

Yet when I run the following commands;

. admin-openrc

openstack user create --domain default --password-prompt glance

I then get the following error;

Gateway Timeout (HTTP 504)

Not really sure what I need to do to go about debugging this?

I've just checked a few of the services that are supposed to start on boot, but they aren't all running. Not sure if that is related or not? And when I tried to start some of them, they wouldn't start. I must not have noticed that when I was installing them that they didn't start up after running the commands. Looks like something else I'll need to create a few more questions for to figure out those problems too.

This looks like you have not set the required environment variables.

Thanks. Looking at that guide, it implies that you need to create one of these files for every Project? It was my understanding that projects could be self-serve via Horizon once set up?

Just updated the original question with info about what i've changed and what the problem is.

You solved the original problem.

Gateway Timeout probably means that Apache can't communicate with Glance. Is Glance running at all?

I don't understand this question, but in this case you are not using Horizon but the CLI.
