Unable to initiate kobotoolbox in an EC2 instance


I am trying to install the kobotoolbox in a fresh EC2 instance of AWS. I follow the below steps:

  1. apt-get update
  2. apt-get upgrade
  3. install docker as described here
  4. install docker-composer as described here
  5. git clone https://github.com/kobotoolbox/kobo-install.git
  6. sudo python3 run.py

The service never is initiated (attached screenshot) and in the log file I see the below error:

ERROR: .FileNotFoundError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ‘./docker-compose.frontend.yml’

Any idea what is this error related with?


Here’s my experience installing kobo-docker on a fresh Linode instance with 2 GB RAM. It’s not EC2, but the steps should be largely the same. At the time that you tried your install, kobo-docker may have assumed it was behind a load balancer or reverse proxy. It now supports running without one, and it can also generate SSL certificates with Let’s Encrypt automatically.
