Also you can configure Packeton server to run behind a NGINX reverse proxy. For example to enable ssl.

server {
    listen *:443 ssl http2;

    server_name pkg.okvpn.org;

    ssl_certificate /etc/letsencrypt/live/pkg.okvpn.org/fullchain.pem;
    ssl_certificate_key /etc/letsencrypt/live/pkg.okvpn.org/privkey.pem;

    if ($host = pkg.okvpn.org) {
        return 301 https://$host$request_uri;
    } # managed by Certbot

    listen 80;
    return 301 https://$host$request_uri;
    server_name pkg.okvpn.org;



  • MySQL or PostgresSQL for the main data store.
  • Redis for some functionality (favorites, download statistics, worker queue).
  • git/svn/hg depending on which repositories you want to support.
  • Supervisor to run a background job worker
  1. Clone the repository
  2. Copy and edit app/config/parameters.yml and change the relevant values for your setup.
  3. Install dependencies: composer install
  4. Run bin/console doctrine:schema:create to setup the DB
  5. Run bin/console assets:install web to deploy the assets on the web dir.
  6. Run bin/console cache:warmup --env=prod and app/console cache:warmup --env=prod to warmup cache
  7. Create admin user via console.
php bin/console fos:user:create
# Add admin role
php bin/console fos:user:promote <username> ROLE_ADMIN
# Add maintainer role
php bin/console fos:user:promote <username> ROLE_MAINTAINER
  1. Enable cron tabs and background jobs. Enable crontab crontab -e -u www-data
* * * * * /var/www/packagist/bin/console --env=prod okvpn:cron >> /dev/null

Setup Supervisor to run worker.

sudo apt -y --no-install-recommends install supervisor

Create a new supervisor configuration.

sudo vim /etc/supervisor/conf.d/packagist.conf

Add the following lines to the file.

environment =
command=/var/www/packagist/bin/console packagist:run-workers --env=prod --no-debug
  1. IMPORTANT Make sure that web-server, cron and supervisor run under the same user, that should have an ssh key that gives it read (clone) access to your git/svn/hg repositories. If you run application under www-data you can add your ssh keys to /var/www/.ssh/

You should now be able to access the site, create a user, etc.

  1. Make a VirtualHost with DocumentRoot pointing to web/

Ssh key access and composer oauth token.

Packagist uses the Composer global config and global ssh-key to get read access to your repositories, so the supervisor worker packagist:run-workers and web-server must run under the user, that have ssh key or composer config that gives it read (clone) access to your git/svn/hg repositories. For example, if your application runs under www-data and have home directory /var/www, directory structure must be like this.

    └── /var/www/
        ├── .ssh/ # ssh keys directory
        │   ├── config
        │   ├── id_rsa # main ssh key
        │   ├── private_key_2 # additional ssh key
        │   └── private_key_3
        └── .composer/ # composer home
            ├── auth.json
            └── config.json

Example ssh config for multiple SSH Keys for different github account/repos, see here for details

# .ssh/config - example

Host github-oroinc
	HostName github.com
	User git
	IdentityFile /var/www/.ssh/private_key_2
	IdentitiesOnly yes

Host github-org2
	HostName github.com
	User git
	IdentityFile /var/www/.ssh/private_key_3
	IdentitiesOnly yes

You can add GitHub/GitLab access token to auth.json, see here

    "github-oauth": {
        "github.com": "xxxxxxxxxxxxx"

Don't use GitHub Api.

By default composer will use GitHub API to get metadata for your GitHub repository, you can add use-github-api to composer config.json to always use ssh key and clone the repository as it would with any other git repository, see here

Update Webhooks

You can use GitLab, GitHub, and Bitbucket project post-receive hook to keep your packages up to date every time you push code.

Bitbucket Webhooks

To enable the Bitbucket web hook, go to your BitBucket repository, open the settings and select "Webhooks" in the menu. Add a new hook. Y ou have to enter the Packagist endpoint, containing both your username and API token. Enter https://<app>/api/bitbucket?token=user:token as URL. Save your changes and you're done.

GitLab Service

To enable the GitLab service integration, go to your GitLab repository, open the Settings > Integrations page from the menu. Search for Packagist in the list of Project Services. Check the "Active" box, enter your packeton.org username and API token. Save your changes and you're done.

GitLab Group Hooks

Group webhooks will apply to all projects in a group and allow to sync all projects. To enable the Group GitLab webhook you must have the paid plan. Go to your GitLab Group > Settings > Webhooks. Enter https://<app>/api/update-package?token=user:token as URL.

GitHub Webhooks

To enable the GitHub webhook go to your GitHub repository. Click the "Settings" button, click "Webhooks". Add a new hook. Enter https://<app>/api/github?token=user:token as URL.

Manual hook setup

If you do not use Bitbucket or GitHub there is a generic endpoint you can call manually from a git post-receive hook or similar. You have to do a POST request to https://pkg.okvpn.org/api/update-package?token=user:api_token with a request body looking like this:

  "repository": {

Also you can overwrite regex that was used to parse the repository url, see ApiController

  "repository": {
  "packeton": {
    "regex": "{^(?:ssh://git@|https?://|git://|git@)?(?P<host>[a-z0-9.-]+)(?::[0-9]+/|[:/])(scm/)?(?P<path>[\\w.-]+(?:/[\\w.-]+?)+)(?:\\.git|/)?$}i"

You can do this using curl for example:

curl -XPOST -H 'content-type:application/json' 'https://pkg.okvpn.org/api/update-package?token=user:api_token' -d' {"repository":{"url":"PACKAGIST_PACKAGE_URL"}}'

Instead of using repo url you can use directly composer package name. You have to do a POST request with a request body.

  "composer": {
    "package_name": "okvpn/test"
  "composer": {
    "package_name": ["okvpn/test", "okvpn/pack2"]

Custom webhook format transformer

You can create a proxy middleware to transform JSON payload to the applicable inner format. In first you need create a new Rest Endpoint to accept external request.

Go to Settings > Webhooks and click Add webhook. Fill the form:

  • url - https://<app>/api/update-package?token=user:token
  • More options > Name restriction - #your-unique-name# (must be a valid regex)
  • Trigger > By HTTP requests to https://APP_URL/api/webhook-invoke/{name} - select checkbox
  • Payload - Write a script using twig expression to transform external request to POST request from previous example.

For example, if the input request has a format, the twig payload may look like this:

      "links": {
          "clone": [
              {"href": "https://github.com/vtsykun/packeton.git"}
{% set repository = request.repository.links.clone[0].href %}
{% if repository is null %}
    {{ interrupt('Request does not contains repository link') }}
{% endif %}

{% set response = {
    'repository': {'url': repository },
    'packeton': {'regex': '{^(?:ssh://git@|https?://|git://|git@)?(?P<host>[a-z0-9.-]+)(?::[0-9]+/|[:/])(scm/)?(?P<path>[\\w.-]+(?:/[\\w.-]+?)+)(?:\\.git|/)?$}i'} 
} %}

{{ response|json_encode }}

See twig expression syntax for details.

Click the "Save button"

Now if you call the url https://APP_URL/api/webhook-invoke/your-unique-name?token=<user>:<token> request will be forward to https://APP_URL/api/update-package?token=user:token with converted POST payload according to your rules.

Usage and Authentication

By default admin user have access to all repositories and able to submit packages, create users, view statistics. The customer users can only see related packages and own profile with instruction how to use api token.

To authenticate composer access to repository needs add credentials globally into auth.json, for example:

composer config --global --auth http-basic.pkg.okvpn.org <user> <token>

API Token you can found in your Profile.

Configure this private repository in your composer.json.

  "repositories": [{
      "type": "composer",
      "url": "https://packeton.company.com"
  "require": {
    "company/name1": "1.0.*",

Create admin and maintainer users.

Only admin and maintainer user can submit a new package. Only admin user can create the new customer users. You can create an user and then promote to admin or maintainer via console using fos user bundle commands.

php bin/console fos:user:create
php bin/console fos:user:promote <username> ROLE_ADMIN
