Jupyter Notebooks have become the defacto standard for data scientists to show case their research and machine learning algorithms and work for presentation and sharing with others. Here we can see how to make Jupyter Notebooks to be accessed over internet from our server.
As usual start with updating ubuntu repositories and upgrade to latest
sudo apt update sudo apt -y upgrade
If you have not installed python already, you install it now. Otherwise skip this part.
sudo apt-get install python3.6 sudo apt install -y python3-pip
Also install the necessary development tools
sudo apt install build-essential libssl-dev libffi-dev python3-dev
Create a virtual configuration in apache2 as below
ServerName jupyter.yourdomain.com ProxyPreserveHost On ProxyRequests off ProxyPass /api/kernels/ ws://localhost:8888/api/kernels/ ProxyPassReverse /api/kernels/ http://localhost:8888/api/kernels/ ProxyPass / http://localhost:8888/ ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8888/
In addition to enable apache reverse proxy, you also need to enable wstunnel
sudo a2enmod proxy sudo a2enmod proxy_http sudo a2enmod proxy_wstunnel sudo systemctl restart apache2
Now that you have restarted apache2, you can start jupyter to run in the background using screen
apt-get install screen screen -A -m -d -S jup jupyter notebook --allow-root --no-browser --NotebookApp.allow_remote_access=True
The switch --NotebookApp.allow_remote_access=True is important to allow the access of notebooks over internet. This will avoid errors such as this" Blocking request with non-local 'Host' jupyter.yourdomain.com. If the notebook should be accessible at that name, set NotebookApp.allow_remote_access to disable the check.
Also if you are not familiar with screen, you should probably google around to check how to use it. Some common commands are:
#to list all the screens screen -ls #to view the screen interface screen -r #to come out and detach from screen view ctrl + A and then D
