Configure the Open edX domain name

The edX server domain name is the default IP address or domain name assigned when the edX server is launched. In order to configure a different domain name, follow the steps below:

  • Log in to the server console.

  • Change the server domain using the bnconfig configuration tool:

    NOTE: Remember to replace the NEW_SERVER_DOMAIN placeholder in the example below with the new server domain name.

      $ sudo /opt/bitnami/apps/edx/bnconfig --machine_hostname NEW_SERVER_DOMAIN
  • Rename or remove bnconfig configuration tool so that it does not change again at boot time:

      $ sudo mv /opt/bitnami/apps/edx/bnconfig /opt/bitnami/apps/edx/bnconfig.disabled
