Running Open edX

Installed OPENedX on Ubuntu 20.04 by following these instructions.

The last message after installation is “Installation finished at 2021-01-05 17:09:44”.

How to check if the installation was successful?

Hey @pradeepkumarjha
Did you set EDXAPP_LMS_BASE as described in the second step of installation?
if you did, you can try this:


otherwise, use your host IP address instead.

also, you can run this command to check the status of every service:

/edx/bin/supervisorctl status

I set up EDXAPP_LMS_BASE to '“” in config.yml file. Do I got to replace ‘’ with my own domain name? I do not have a host IP yet.

Also, I do not see any /edx in my root folder. What to do?

It’s totally impossible. at the first steps of installation, the /edx directory is being created automatically. It may have happened because the installation was not finished properly. have you ever set up an Open edX instance normally on Ubuntu 16.04?
I think your problem is related to the note at the top of the document. check it again:

For Juniper and earlier, see Native Open edX platform Ubuntu 16.04 64 bit Installation.

This page is a work in progress.

As it’s been mentioned there, The document is in a Work-In-Progress state and not ready to use. Besides, if you want to use your instance you must have a host and an IP address. if you’re looking for a trial, it’s recommended to use Bitnami or the Devstack versions.

Installed Ubuntu 16.04. Followed these instructions. All went smooth till step number 5.

Now, when I execute

/edx/bin/supervisorctl status

terminal says

[sudo] password for edxapp:

What password is this?

That command must be run as a sudoer user, not edxapp user.
