SOLVED Install own app failed with No CloudronManifest.json found

  • Staff

    We haven't really tested it on windows yet. I will do so in the next couple of days, to see if we need some special fixes there.

  • I install ZorinOS on HyperV and try it there

  • Hey,
    I did everything differently than I had planned 😊

    I have installed my first app on my instance, but i can't connect to mariadb-server.
    Yes my plan was to install a standalone mariadb-server to use it as cloud database without any connection to the internal database.

    Now I would like to test my server and I can't connect. The server runs good, the special credentials that I have created dynamically while installation works, but when I try to connect from my Client Valentina Studio on Zorin OS to the server nothing happens.

    What I'm doing wrong?

    Can anybody help me? All knowledge I have acquired autodidactically

    Thanks and have a nice evening.

    @roru2k20 To use cloudrons built-in mysql server (MariaDB is mysql!) you need to add the mysql addon to the manifest. Then you will get auto-generated credentials via environment variables.

    Screenshot of how the manifest would look with it:

    Please note the syntax - it's a JSON file and will need to be formatted properly!

  • @murgero many thanks but my plan is not to connect to the internal server. My plan is only to create a standalone server.

    Now I have installed successfully, but I can't connect to them.

    When I test the container with a portscanner only 80, 443, 22 and 222 are open. My plan is 6033.


    Is this a good plan?

    When all is fine next step is to combine with phpMyAdmin in one installation.

  • Now I have change all Ports to 6033 and I can't connect to the MariaDB-Server

    Here you can see my netstat -tulpen export

    But further my portscanner said no open Port 6033.

    What I'm doing wrong???

    In your case you have to specify the ports in the CloudronManifest. See for that

    Generally, what is your reason to require a standalone mysql server as an app on your Cloudron?

  • I would like to test if I can create an App for Cloudron.

    But may be as App for centralized database server for development. It is only an idea from me.

    When it successfull done I would like to test more, may be more complicated app.

  • Oh my godness...I'm so blind

    In Germany we often say: We can't see the forest for the trees. 😉

    It works great!! It was misconfiguration of my client. My client Valentina Studio thought the connection was a MSSQL-Server and not a MariaDB/MySQL. After I recreate my connection it works with the right port and use my special credentials.

    Thanks a lot for your help
