Running multiple Open edX platforms on a single server

With Tutor, it is easy to run multiple Open edX instances on a single server. To do so, the following configuration parameters must be different for all platforms:

  • TUTOR_ROOT: so that configuration, environment and data are not mixed up between platforms.

  • LOCAL_PROJECT_NAME: the various docker-compose projects cannot share the same name.

  • NGINX_HTTP_PORT: ports cannot be shared by two different containers.

  • LMS_HOST, CMS_HOST: the different platforms must be accessible from different domain (or subdomain) names.

In addition, a web proxy must be setup on the host, as described in the corresponding tutorial.
