We raise our Speedtest node

  • Tutorial
If you need to measure the speed of the connection to the Internet, then most likely you will open speedtest.net. Speedtest allows you to create your own measurement nodes that other users will be able to use, for example, it will be very important for Internet providers (the main Speedtest server will be placed after the device, which cuts speed to subscribers).

Under the cut a detailed installation manual.

The system requirements that developers offer ^

Speedtest supports many operating systems:

  • Windows Server (2008, or 2012 with IIS 6, 7, 7.5, or 8)
  • Linux (2.6.18 kernel or newer)
  • Mac OS X (built on 10.8, previous versions may be but not fully supported)
  • FreeBSD (kernel 7.3 or newer)

I used Ubuntu 18.04.

So let's go in order. First of all, you need to download the application for HTTP Legacy Fallback and the main server for Speedtest to work.

A web server is required for HTTP Legacy Fallback to work, I used apache + php. The content of http_legacy_fallback.zip is unpacked in / var / www / html .

From my OoklaServer.tgz archive, in my case, the OoklaServer-linux64 directory was needed . We unpack it in a place where you have third-party programs, for example, / opt / speedtest .

Next you need to start OoklaServer and make it start at system startup.
Check that it worked. It is necessary to open http: // <your ip> in your browser: 8080

If everything is fine, then the following message will appear:

Now let's check the HTTP Legacy Fallback. Open http: // <your ip> /speedtest/upload.php

There should be something like this. size=500

After that, the node must be registered with Speedtest. To do this, you need to register at https://account.ookla.com/ and go to the “Speedtest Servers” section. After that, you can click “Add Server”, a window with a questionnaire will open: You

must fill in the questionnaire and wait until the server appears in the general list.

About a day from the subscribers of our network, he already began to be automatically selected at the entrance to speedtest.net.

I will be glad to answer your questions in the comments.
