This page provides instructions for troubleshooting issues that may occur with your Anaconda Enterprise 4 Repository installation.
Cannot connect to the server on port x#
This could be because you are behind a firewall. Check if your IPTables rules are blocking your ports:
iptables -L -n
If a rule blocks a port you want to use, then you must allow the port:
sudo iptables -t nat -F sudo iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -m tcp --dport <PORT> -j ACCEPT sudo service iptables save sudo service iptables restart
Error: “No environment named ‘search’ exists in…” on Windows#
If Anaconda Client is not yet installed and you try to search for
a package on Anaconda.org using the
anaconda command, you may
receive the following error message:
C:\Users\USERNAME>anaconda search -t conda PACKAGE No environment named "search" exists in C:\anaconda\envs
This error occurs because the Windows version of Anaconda
anaconda.bat file that is used for setting
environment paths and switching environments. If Client is not
installed, this batch file is called instead. Once you install
Client, the Anaconda
search command will work:
conda install anaconda-client anaconda search -t conda PACKAGE
Anaconda upload fails while behind a reverse proxy#
When configuring Client to connect to a Repository behind a
reverse proxy, the
anaconda upload command may appear to try
connecting to the internal hostname rather than the external
This can be corrected in the settings of the reverse proxy, such as NGINX or Apache.
In NGINX, add the setting
proxy_set_header Host $host; to
access the internal host with the external hostname.
In Apache, turn on the option
Other reverse proxies each have their own settings to handle hostnames correctly.
EXAMPLE: Some other reverse proxies use a settings syntax such as
Start Repository application as a foreground process#
Repository should normally be started as a daemon. For troubleshooting, it can instead be started as a foreground process on a specified port:
anaconda-server --port 8080
Stop the application with Control-C.
