Run ASP.NET Core on OpenShift
Today I’ll show you how to Run ASP.NET Core on OpenShift.
First be aware of the following prerequisites:
- You’ll need a working Docker installation. If you are using Windows 10 you can get Docker for Windows here.
- Be sure to Disable TLS for 127.0.0.1:2375 for your Docker installation
- Be sure to set 172.30.0.0/16 as an Insecure Registry in your Docker installation
- Be sure to set 172.30.1.1:5000 as a Registry Mirror in your Docker installation
- You’ll need download the oc Client Tools
Note: If you want to learn about OpenShift and what can you do with it, I recommend the free book: Openshift for Developers.
Now let’s start:
1. Create a folder for your new project
Open a command promt an run:
2. Create the project
cd aspnet.on.openshift dotnet new web
No you have a working Hello World application.
3. Publish your application
Restore the nuget packages and publish your application with the following commands:
dotnet restore dotnet publish -c release
4. Create a Dockerfile
Create a Dockerfile (be aware of the capital D) with the following contents:
FROM microsoft/dotnet # Set ASPNETCORE_URLS ENV ASPNETCORE_URLS=https://*:8080 # Switch to root for changing dir ownership/permissions USER 0 # Copy the binaries COPY /bin/release/netcoreapp1.1/publish app # Change to app directory WORKDIR app # In order to drop the root user, we have to make some directories world # writable as OpenShift default security model is to run the container under # random UID. RUN chown -R 1001:0 /app && chmod -R og+rwx /app # Expose port 8080 for the application. EXPOSE 8080 # Run container by default as user with id 1001 (default) USER 1001 # Start the application using dotnet!!! ENTRYPOINT dotnet aspnet.on.openshift.dll
5. Create you OpenShift Cluster
Run the following command:
oc cluster up --host-data-dir=/mydata --version=v1.5.1
You should have a working cluster. To get the url of your cluster run:
Browse to your cluster (i.e https://10.0.75.2:8443) and login with username: developer and password developer
6. Create an app in OpenShift
Run the following command:
oc new-app . --name=aspnetoc
7. Build your OpenShift image
Run the following command
oc start-build aspnetoc --from-dir=.
8. Create a route so you can access the application
Run the following commands
oc create route edge --service=aspnetoc oc get route aspnetoc
Copy the host/port output of the previous command (i.e. aspnetoc-myproject.10.0.75.2.nip.io)
9. Check the status and browse to you application
Check the status with the following command
When your pod has been deployed browse to your application using the host you copied in step 8 (i.e. https://aspnetoc-myproject.10.0.75.2.nip.io).
Enjoy! you just deployed your ASP.NET Core application to OpenShift.
