In this guide we'll run you through installing qTest Parameters 1.1 on a separated CentOS/ Ubuntu machine using Docker.
If you want to deploy qTest Parameters on the same machine with qTest Manager, check out the section "Install qTest Manager and its additional applications" in another article.
Before you begin
Before you install qTest Parameters 1.1, make sure following things are done:
Install qTest Parameters 1.1
1. Download docker-deloyment-4.0 package
2. Extract the package and access the docker-deployment-4.0 directory
$ tar -zxf docker-deployment-4.0.tar.gz
$ cd /docker-deployment-4.0
3. Configure before deploying
Access to the directory where you've extracted the docker-deployment-4.0, and run the ./configure command to deploy the package.
The command has to include URL & port of qTest Parameters
3.1 Configure to deploy HTTP
$ ./configure --parameters-url "http://<IP of current machine>:<parameters port>" --parameters-http "<parameters port>"
3.2 Configure to deploy HTTPS
$ ./configure --ssl-key "<SSL Key>" --ssl-cert "<SSL Cert>" --ssl-ca "<SSL Ca>" --parameters-url "https://<IP of current machine>:<parameters https port>" --parameters-https "<parameters https port>"
4. Start the deployment process
The script will download the application images to the Docker. It may take couple of hours depending on your network connection.
Once the installation is complete, access to qTest Manager via your browser and setup for qTest Parameters.

Access your Administration page
Under System Configuration page, scroll to Parameters section and enter Parameters URL. Test Connection and save the configuration.
Scroll to section MISCELLANEOUS and enter qTest URL into the field qTest server's Domain.
