Launch the Management server

The Lightrun Management server works best in a container environment.


The Management server defaults to port 8080 and requires HTTPS so the URL should look like this:


If port 8080 is already in use, change the port number from the docker-compose file. Be sure to change the port number if you changed the configuration from your docker-compose file. SSL certificates can be applied to domains only. Therefore, the page loads with an HTTPS warning for on-premises installations.

Run the Management server on any host using docker-compose or any other container orchestration tool such as Kubernetes, Docker Swarm or Rancher etc. Copy the two yml files provided to you from Lightrun into an empty directory and execute them as follows:

cd {docker-compose-directory}
docker-compose up -d
