Installing on Linux

Lee Painter


This article walks you through the installation of a JADAPTIVE Server product on your chosen platform. Installers are available for Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux. If you have not already downloaded, you should do so now by visiting the server product page on the JADAPTIVE website.

Installing the Linux Packages

Linux packages are available for Debian (DEB) and Redhat (RPM). These should be compatible with any distribution that supports the packaging format.

Install OS Package

You are now ready to install the product using the OS-specific package.

Debian 10

sudo dpkg -i <product>-linux-<version>.deb

CentOS 8

sudo rpm -i <product>-linux-<version>.rpm

Starting/Stopping the Service

The server will start automatically when you install the package. The HTTP server starts on port 8443.

To start the service:

sudo systemctl start <product>

To stop the service:

sudo systemctl stop <product>

To restart the service

sudo systemctl restart <product>

When the server first starts up it will generate a self-signed certificate for this purpose. To install your own certificate you should consult the Installing an SSL Certificate article.

Next Steps

Now you have installed the server, you can proceed to the setup wizard section of the installation. Here you will run through a wizard on the products web server to configure it further. Open up your browser and enter the URL of your server, https://<server> and you should receive further prompts to complete the final elements of the server's configuration.
