Start with downloading Phoenix with sources from github:

$ git clone
$ cd pyramid-phoenix

Create the conda environment and activate it:

$ conda env create -f environment.yml
$ conda activate pyramid-phoenix

Edit the configuration custom.cfg (see custom.cfg.example). For example change the admin password:

$ vim custom.cfg
# phoenix admin password
phoenix-password = qwerty

When you’re finished, run make install to install Phoenix into the conda environment. The installation is using buildout:

$ (pyramid-phoenix) make install

By default phoenix will be installed into the folder ~/birdhouse.

After successful installation you need to start the services:

$ (pyramid-phoenix) make start    # starts supervisor services
$ (pyramid-phoenix) make status   # shows status of supervisor services

Phoenix web application is available on http://localhost:8081.

Check the log file for errors:

$ tail -f  ~/birdhouse/var/log/supervisor/phoenix.log
$ tail -f  ~/birdhouse/var/log/supervisor/celery.log
