It is a bit difficult to install a shiny server on a Linux server, since there are so many options and it is quite a bit of work.
But it is also possible to install it using the command line, and this article explains how.
We will show you how to install ShinyServer on Ubuntu, Fedora, and CentOS.
In the following article, we will install ShinyClient from scratch using the Ubuntu installer.
ShinyClient is a lightweight and flexible application that lets you connect to a Shiny server using a Shiny application.
We won’t be using it to connect to ShinyServer directly.
We’ll be using ShinyClient as a wrapper around ShinyServer, which means we won’t need to install any packages or install any software.
ShinyServer will start on startup to make the connection.
Let’s install ShinyServers package We’ll start by installing ShinyServer package.
The ShinyServer installer is available for download from the Ubuntu Software Center.
For now, we’ll just need to run the installer.
Install the package Now that ShinyServer is installed, we can install the package.
We can do this by typing: sudo apt-get install shinyserver You will be prompted to select which version of ShinyServer you would like to install.
Click Install Now that the package has been installed, you should see ShinySer, ShinyClient, and ShinyServer listed in the list of installed packages.
You should see the ShinyServer install message in the terminal window.
We now have ShinyServer installed on the server.
You can now use ShinyServer to connect from a client machine, or from the console on a server.
For example, if you wanted to access the server using ShinyServer from the terminal on a client, you can do: echo “Connecting to server…”
> ~/.local/share/shinyclient/server/server.sh ShinyServer now has a client on the client machine.
You are connected to ShinyClient now.
You now have access to a number of options.
Here’s a quick overview of all the options: Server IP address (192.168.1.1) Client IP address Username (username) Password (password) Username/Password combination (username/password) Port number (port) User name and password (user) User ID (userid) Port password (password password) HTTP port (443) HTTP/2 port (6379) TCP port (9333) HTTP proxy port (22) SSL port (1133) SSL certificate (certificate) You can find more information about ShinySer by typing https://shiny.shinyproject.com/server-setup/.
You can also check the ShinySer installation instructions by typing about:install.
The server is now connected.
Let us connect again Now that we have ShinySer installed on our server, let us connect to it again.
In Terminal, type: ssh -L localhost:3000 localhost If you see the command prompt window, you will be redirected to the ShinyClient installation prompt.
To connect again, type ssh -T localhost -A localhost The server should now be available.
If you have not yet set up a ShinyClient application, you’ll need to do so.
To do so, first create a new ShinyClient app.
Type: sudo mkdir -p /home/you/app/app1/app2/app3/app4/app5/app6 sudo cp ~/shiny/app /home /you/apps/app Now we have a ShinyApp application.
Type sudo nano ~/shinky/app/.config/appConfig.shsh ShinyApp will be the first app to be created.
Type the following: # Application configuration # # This is the application’s configuration file.
# # You can edit it, but not use it.
We don’t want to use it now.
# Please create an empty file, and then replace the contents with this # # … # # Here is a sample config file: # # Name: ShinyClient # # Type: Application # # Version: 1.0.0 # # Created: Wed Sep 26 00:03:51 2018 # # # User: [email protected] # # Application User # # Username: example.com Username # # Password: examplepassword # # Connection Timeout: 60 # # Enable SSL: True # # Set SSL Certificate: True SSL Certificate # # SSL Certificate Version: v1.0 Type: AppConfig.SHinyClient_Config This config file will be used to configure the application, and you should create it using your existing configuration.
We need to specify a username and password for the user that is used to connect.
The password should be a secure password.
You must set the Connection Timeouts for the connections that are used by the app.
The Connection Time out must be at least 60 seconds.
The port number must be either 443 or 9333.
We set this to 9333 because this is the default port for
