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.

You will need to install a compatible Java runtime before installing the package. The minimum Java version supported is Java 8, but we recommend Java 11 as this generally provides better performance.

1. Install Java

To install OpenJDK 11 JRE:

On Debian 10

sudo apt install openjdk-11-jre

On CentOS 8

sudo yum install java-11-openjdk

2. 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

3. Starting/Stopping the Service

The server will start automatically when you install the package. The HTTP server starts on port 8443 and the SSH server on port 2222. 

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

You have installed the server. Connect your browser to the webserver which should be running on port 443 and follow the setups to complete the installation.
