Using Conda with Anaconda Server¶
You will need to configure Conda to install packages from your Anaconda Server installation.
Set your channel alias on conda:
If you are using SSL:
# Replace <DOMAIN> with your domain. conda config --set channel_alias https://<DOMAIN>/api/repo
If you are not using SSL:
# Replace <DOMAIN> with your domain. conda config --set channel_alias http://<DOMAIN>/api/repo
And configure your default channels to include the channel where Anaconda Distribution packages have been mirrored:
# Replace <DEFAULT_CHANNEL> with the channel where Anaconda Distribution packages have been mirrored. conda config --prepend default_channels <DEFAULT_CHANNEL>
You can run the above command multiple times to configure several default channels.
Alternatively, you can edit your
.condarc file manually:
You will need to configure your conda configuration file,
.condarc, to point to your instance of Anaconda Server and
set up the channel(s) you want to pull packages from. This enables Conda to install packages from your instance of
Anaconda Server rather than pulling from repo.anaconda.com.
The location of your
.condarc file depends on which operating system you use. Consult the
to determine the correct path.
.condarcfile with a text editor
channel_alias: https://<HOST_NAME>.<COMPANY>.com/api/repo default_channels: - <DEFAULT_CHANNEL>
Save the file.
Install packages from Anaconda Server (public channels):
conda install [-c <CHANNEL_NAME>] <PACKAGE_NAME>
-c <CHANNEL_NAME> flag allows you to install packages from channels on Anaconda Server that have been
created by users or administrators.
If you do not specify the
-c flag, packages will be taken from the channels in the
Prior to installing packages from a private or authenticated channel, you first need to log in using the Anaconda Server CLI, not from the browser.
More information on conda commands can be found in the conda documentation.
