Asseter On-Prem Installation guide

Digital assets management system powered by AI

System requirements

  • Linux Ubuntu 18.04 or newer
  • 8 cores CPU
  • 16 GB RAM
  • 16 GB SSD to install and init Asseter
  • Free space according to the size of your expected assets
  • Internet connection and allowed access to asseter.ai and it's subdomains
  • Root permissions
Your assets media content can be stored directly on the host machine or you can mount an external volume. This will be described below.

Before we start

Let's say we have a satisfying all requirements host machine running on IP address 10.1.4.1.
First of all we need to decide where our media content will be stored and where PostgreSQL database will be running.
If all Asseter services should run and media content should be stored on 10.1.4.1host machine, you can proceed to installation right now.
If you need your media content to be stored on external volume, please proceed to [Storing media content on external volume instructions] before installing Asseter
If you need PostgreSQL to be run on external machine, please proceed to Running PostgreSQL on another machine instructions before installing Asseter

Storing media content on an external volume

To do so, you need to mount your external volume to /mnt/asseter_media-content folder on host machine before you install the Asseter:
sudo nano /etc/fstab
Add your volume like this:
//10.1.4.2/my_media_content_folder_path /mnt/asseter_media-content cifs user,uid=1000,rw,suid,username=mysmbusername,password=mysmbpassword,domain=mydomain.local
Then press CTRL+x, y, Enter to save the changes and close the file.
Reboot your machine:
sudo reboot
Install Asseter as described here

Running PostgreSQL on another machine

To do so we need to configure PostgreSQL server. Let's say it is running on host 10.1.4.3
ssh 10.1.4.3
sudo apt update
sudo apt install curl gpg gnupg2 software-properties-common apt-transport-https lsb-release ca-certificates
curl -fsSL https://www.postgresql.org/media/keys/ACCC4CF8.asc|sudo gpg --dearmor -o /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/postgresql.gpg
echo "deb http://apt.postgresql.org/pub/repos/apt/ `lsb_release -cs`-pgdg main" |sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pgdg.list
sudo apt update
sudo apt install postgresql-13 postgresql-client-13
sudo su - postgres
psql -c "create user assetusr with password 'MySecretAsseterPassword';"
psql -c "ALTER USER assetusr WITH SUPERUSER;"
psql -c "ALTER USER assetusr CREATEDB LOGIN;"
psql -c "GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON ALL TABLES IN SCHEMA public TO assetusr;"
psql -c "GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON ALL SEQUENCES IN SCHEMA public TO assetusr;"
sudo su
nano /etc/postgresql/13/main/pg_hba.conf
Add these lines:
local all assetusr md5
host all assetusr 10.1.4.1/32 md5
And save the file with CTRL+x, y, Enter
sudo su
sudo nano /etc/postgresql/13/main/postgresql.conf
Change listen_addresses variable value to this:
listen_addresses='*'
And save the file with ctrl+x, y, enter
sudo service postgresql restart
psql -U assetusr -d postgres -c "create database asset_lib_db;"
psql -c "GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON DATABASE asset_lib_db to assetusr;"
wget -O db.dump https://fs.asseter.ai/releases/latest/db.dump
psql -U assetusr -v ON_ERROR_STOP=1 asset_lib_db < db.dump
Install Asseter as described here
