- Getting Started with Jelastic Cloud
Some Jelastic containers do not have root access by default. It is possible to enable this access to a container of your choice by installing an add-on
Authorising root access to a Jelastic container
- Log in to your Jelastic Cloud's dashboard
- Click on the Importbutton on the top menu bar
- Go to the JPStab
- Copy the following code and paste it into the JPStab
name: Root Access
short: Enable a full root access to your container
text: The Root Access add-on reconfigures the container to provide you with a full root access. Be aware that such connection is extremely powerful and, if used inappropriately, may lead to your container / application failure. **Proceed at your own risk and only in case you know exactly what to do.
- sed -i -e 's/.*NOPASSWD.*//g' /etc/sudoers.d/sudo
- 'USER=$(grep -i ''x:''$(cat /etc/passwd | grep jelastic:x | cut -d'':'' -f 3) /etc/passwd | grep -v jelastic:x | cut -d: -f1)'
- 'touch /etc/sudoers.d/sudo'
- 'echo "$USER ALL=NOPASSWD: ALL" >> /etc/sudoers.d/sudo'
- 'echo "jelastic ALL=NOPASSWD: ALL" >>/etc/sudoers.d/sudo'
The Root Access add-on was successfully installed. Access your container over SSH and run the **sudo su** command. *Note:*
Jelastic is not liable for any actions performed or damage caused via root to your container / application.
- Click on the Import button
- Choose the environment and node for which root access is necessary
- Click on the Install button
To execute root commands, log in to your application via SSH and launch the sudo su command
Jelastic offers an add-on that allows you to install packages that require sudo permissions without the need for root access: https://github.com/jelastic-jps/packages-installer
