# Set FLASK_ENV variable
export FLASK_ENV=development

# Alternatively, use a .env file
echo "FLASK_ENV=development" > .env

# Run application
flask run

Production configuration

Configure and launch web API server

The following lines explain hwo to run pyodhean server with apache. They do not cover creating and using an SSL certificate.

Copy apache2 directory from docs/deployment/etc into /etc.

Create a pyodhean directory to hold the application files.

Create a Pyhton 3 virtual environment in the pyodhean directory:

virtualenv -p /usr/bin/python3 venv-pyodhean

Pull code from pyodhean and pyodhean-server repositories and install them in the virtual environment:

source venv-pyodhean/bin/activate
pip install ./pyodhean
pip install ./pyodhean-server

Copy files from docs/deployment/pyodhean into the pyodhean directory.

Customize them if needed. At least the path to the virtual environment must be specified.

Make sure settings.conf can be read by apache user:

chown root:www-data application/settings.conf
chmod 640 application/settings.conf

The pyodhean directory should look like this::


Note: The pyodhean and pyodhean-server repositories can be stored anywhere. They do not have to be in the pyodhean directory.

Edit /etc/apache2/sites-available/pyodhean.conf.

Reload apache2.

The API should be available as https://domain.tld/api/v0/.

Create directories to store log files:

mkdir /var/log/pyodhean
chmod pyodhean:pyodhean /var/log/pyodhean

Configure and launch solver service

Create pyodhean user:

adduser --system --no-create-home --group pyodhean

Create log directory:

mkdir -m 755 /var/log/pyodhean-celery
chown pyodhean:pyodhean /var/log/pyodhean-celery

Copy systemd directory from docs/deployment/etc into /etc.

Edit pyodhean-celery configuration file to specify the paths.


Start the service and enable it for automatic start on system startup:

systemctrl enable pyodhean-celery
systemctrl start pyodhean-celery

Configure log files rotation

Copy logrotate.d directory from docs/deployment/etc into /etc.

Configure authentication

Create a users DB file the apache user can read:

touch /path/to/project/users.db
chown root:www-data /path/to/project/users.db
chmod 640 /path/to/project/users.db

Add users to the DB file:

source venv-pyodhean/bin/activate
flask add-user /path/to/project/users.db user password

Edit application configuration to enable authorization and pass users BD file:
