Just in case you don’t have time to do a full test, but still want to give this a spin, you can try out using out docker image instead :slight_smile:

all is required is docker and docker-compose to get started:

setting up docker / docker-compose

sudo groupadd docker
sudo yum install docker docker-compose
sudo usermod -aG docker $USER
newgrp docker
sudo service docker start

then, on some directory download:
https://raw.githubusercontent.com/theforeman/foreman/1.23-stable/docker-compose.yml

edit the file, and change:

diff --git a/docker-compose.yml b/docker-compose.yml
index cfca7a3b0..467acb736 100644
--- a/docker-compose.yml
+++ b/docker-compose.yml

     command: bundle exec bin/rails server -b 0.0.0.0

This will download the latest 1.23 stable version, if you want to be more explicit, you can download the RC1 tag directly(use 1.23.0-RC1), for all available tags, you can visit https://quay.io/repository/foreman/foreman?tab=tags.

then start the environment

docker-compose pull
docker-compose run app bundle exec rake db:create db:migrate
docker-compose run app bundle exec rake db:seed permissions:reset password=changeme
docker-compose up

Happy testing…
