i know that in the OSs that you have mentioned i could find any type of suggestion (or tutorial) simply by searching on google. But on my instace on OpenStack there is cirrOS that is rarely used and there is no documentation about it. So, i hope that on this site someone can help me

  • Try to upload an OS (Ubuntu desktop .iso) using Horizon dashboard
  • Now launch the instance with this image and appropriate flavor
  • Now give floating IP to it
  • Get to instance console and make sure you have internet access
  • sudo apt-get install apache2
  • Then use it.

the point is that i should try to install apache on my instances, which have cirrOS, not change the OS.

CirrOS is just a test for Cloud Images. You need to have OS suggested by Antonio.

Hi, welcome to ask.openstack.

You first have to determine which operating system your instance is using (Ubuntu, Centos, any other OS). Then you could google for how to install apache on <os>.

For example, in Ubuntu you have to simply run this command:

sudo apt-get install apache2

Note: maybe it is not the correct place to search for a solution on your problem as this group is mainly focused on Openstack ;)

In my case new instance can only be logged using ssh -i key ubuntu@ip. sudo is not working! after logging into instance.
