System Requirements

The application is written in Python on top of the excellent Django web framework and depends on the latest stable versions of the following components for operation:


Install and start PostgreSQL, nginx, memcached, rabbitMQ (only necessary if you want to use automated rules). Then install the necessary Python packages:

$ pip install -U -r requirements.pip

Then clone the code:

$ git clone my_servo_folder
$ cd my_servo_folder
$ pip install -U -r requirements.pip

Next, run the installation script:

$ ./

For testing, you can run Servo without any extra setup:

$ cd my_servo_folder
$ python ./ runserver

If you want to run rules, set ENABLE_RULES = True and start the worker task:

$ celery -A servo worker -B -l info -s /tmp/celerybeat-schedule

Then fire up your browser and got to http://localhost:8000/

You can also download a preconfigured VMWare image here. Please read the included README files for instructions.

$ ./ backupdb


$ ./ selfupdate

After which you should restart your Servo instance. The method depends on how it's deployed.
