ILLA home page

You must have Docker before using the ILLA CLI to deploy a self-hosted installation. When you use ILLA CLI, you should add current user to docker group or use in root.

Downloading ILLA CLI

If you have Rust installed, you can easily build+install the latest ILLA CLI release with cargo:

> cargo install illa

The cargo tool will complete downloading the ILLA CLI with its source dependencies, build and install it into the cargo bin path so that we can run it. Once installed, you can run the ILLA CLI with the illa command.

Alternatively, you can just download the ILLA CLI for your operating system here:

If you do download from the above links, the steps are slightly different compared to downloading the ILLA CLI from cargo. After downloading the CLI, you will have to make it executable. Let’s take the illa-linux for example:

## download illa cli binary file
> wget

## unpack the file
> tar -zxvf illa-x86_64-linux.tar.gz

> cd illa-x86_64-linux

> chmod +x illa

## run the illa cli
> ./illa

Checking the prerequisites of self-hosted installation

These ports 5432, 9999 and 8000 should remain for the ILLA Builder

The following command will check the prerequisites of self-hosted installation on your operating system:

> illa doctor

Deploying ILLA Builder

Once the ILLA CLI has been installed, you can run a self-hosted or cloud installation.


> illa deploy --self --port=10000

You can simply deploy a self-hosted ILA Builder by running the following command:

# the port which ILLA Builder can be accessed on can be changed
# the <MOUNT_PATH> is the custom mount path of ILLA Builder, the default value is a path under the user home directory if not filled
> illa deploy --self --port=10000 --mount=<MOUNT_PATH>

Now, you can access the ILLA Builder: http://localhost:10000

Updating ILLA Builder

To update the ILLA Builder with the latest docker images, use the following command:

> illa update --self

Other operations

# list the ILLA Builder
> illa list --self

# stop the ILLA Builder
> illa stop --self

# remove the ILLA Builder
> illa remove --self

# forced removal of the running ILLA Builder and persistent data
> sudo illa remove --force --self --data

# restart the ILLA Builder
> illa restart --self

# help information
> illa help
