How is Reporter 9.1.x installed on Linux?
With Reporter 22.214.171.124, the installation is manual. It is installed by doing a gunzip of the Reporter 8 install. For Reporter 9.1, the installation is now a RPM package that installs Reporter 9 into the standard Linux directories. Additionally, the RPM install now comes with its own start and stop script that installs into the init.d folder structures.
Note: To run any RPM on a LINUX server, you need to have root access.
To install Reporter into the default directories, execute the following command:
rpm -Uhv Reporter_9*.rpm
This will result in it being installed to /opt/bc/reporter
To install Reporter into a custom directory, execute the following command:
rpm -Uhv --prefix=<custom-directory> Reporter_9*.rpm
NOTE unless you are a Linux expert, we don't recommend you install to a non-standard folder.
NOTE: To facilitate non-root users operational access to reporter, have the installation folder created prior to running the RPM install. When the installation directory already exists, the rpm install produces the entire Reporter directory structure using the user (and group) ownership of the install directory.
Installing using the Gzip file:
You should now see a 'isready.txt' file appear, and the prompt that instructs you to startup reporter.
NOTE Using the gunzip method means we will NOT install any startup scripts for you in the /etc/init.d folder.
NOTE: Upgrades are handled the same away as the above, by unzipping the file in the folder you origonaly installed reporter to, however there is not need to re-run the do-startup script.
Change to the working directory to the Reporter installation directory and run the startup script by executing the following command:
To start and stop Reporter , if you used the RPM to install
To procure a status of Reporter, if you used the RPM to install.
