What I needed to get a MineMeld Installation to run on a fresh Ubuntu-Server-14-04 (26.10.2018)
Installation of "software-properties-common" was needed to actually be able to add a repository using "add-apt-repository"
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
Then follow the guide: https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/t5/MineMeld-Articles/Manually-install-MineMeld-on-Ubuntu-Server-14-04/ta-p/98454 MineMeld did not start properly (minemeld-engine and minemeld-web FAILED) So apparently PIP needs to be patched (https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/t5/MineMeld-Discussions/New-minemeld-deploy-unable-to-login-to-GUI/td-p/211171 )
sudo service minemeld stop
sudo -H -u minemeld /opt/minemeld/engine/current/bin/pip install pip==9.0.3
sudo service minemeld start
Now your MineMeld Service should start, you can check that using the statment in the document above:
sudo -u minemeld /opt/minemeld/engine/current/bin/supervisorctl -c /opt/minemeld/local/supervisor/config/supervisord.conf status
Probably you want a proper certificate for your MineMeld Installation (if you have a DNS Name associated with your IP you can easily use LetsEncrypt for that https://certbot.eff.org/lets-encrypt/ubuntutrusty-nginx ) Since 8.0 apparently it is not possible to import a self signed certificate (Device>Certificate Management> Certificates) to use in a Certificate Profile - so the default Cert of MM will not work.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:certbot/certbot
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python-certbot-nginx
sudo certbot --nginx
You may need to adjust your nginx confiugration in /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/minemeld-web to replace the ssl specific configuration for minemeld with the newly generated Certificates by Certbot In my case i had to delete/comment the original lines for ssl_protocols, ssl_prefer_server_ciphers, ssl_cyphers since otherwise nginx will fail to start. Finally (optional) you can Enable authentication for all output nodes https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/t5/MineMeld-Discussions/Minemeld-Feed-Password-OR-api-security/td-p/131716
sudo -u minemeld sh -c 'echo "FEEDS_AUTH_ENABLED: True" > /opt/minemeld/local/config/api/30-feeds-auth.yml'
