Waken is beneficial for keeping things organized, planning tasks, creating personal to-do lists, managing teams, etc. This tool allows you to use a colored label on different cards for facilitating filtering, project grouping, and assigning projects to a particular person.
Steps To Install and Configure Wekan Server on Ubuntu 22.04
To complete this guide, you must log in to your server as a non-root user with sudo privileges. To do this, you can follow our guide on Initial Server Setup with Ubuntu 22.04.
Install Wekan on Ubuntu 22.04
In this guide, we use the snap package management to install Wekan.
First, you need to update your local package index with the following command:
sudo apt update
Then, you need to install snap on your server with the command below:
sudo apt install snapd -y
Now you can use the snap command to install Wekan on your Ubuntu 22.04:
sudo snap install wekan
When your installation is completed you will see:
Output wekan 6.09 from Lauri Ojansivu (xet7) installed
Configure Wekan on Ubuntu 22.04
At this point, you need to configure the root of the web URL for the Wekan server with the following command:
sudo snap set wekan root-url="http://your_server_ip"
Here you need to set a port number on Ubuntu 22.04 to access Wekan server through your browser.
Note: Set a port number to one that isn’t in use. You can use whatever port you want—we use port 3001—but don’t use a common one, like 22, 25, 443, 80, etc.
sudo snap set wekan port='3001'
Now you should restart the MongoDB service on snap with the following command:
sudo systemctl restart snap.wekan.mongodb
Also, you should restart the Wekan server on snap:
sudo systemctl restart snap.wekan.wekan
You can check your Wekan service status with the command below:
sudo ss -tunelp | grep 3001
Output tcp LISTEN 0 511 0.0.0.0:3001 0.0.0.0:* users:(("node",pid=13013,fd=24)) ino:47932 sk:3 cgroup:/system.slice/snap.wekan.wekan.service <->
Next, enable your Wekan service to start on boot on Ubuntu 22.04:
sudo snap enable wekan
Finally, you need to reload the snap:
sudo snap refresh
Access Wekan Web Interface
At this point, you can access your Wekan web interface by typing your server’s IP address in your web browser followed by the port that you have defined before.
You will see the Wekan sign-in screen. If you are logging in for the first time, click on Register.
Here you will see the Create an Account page. Complete the information and click on Register. You may get an error; don’t worry, just ignore it.
At this point, you will see your Wekan dashboard on Ubuntu 22.04.
