Linux installers are provided as the "advanced" server installer only. The Linux installer is tuned for each distribution:
- Ubuntu version 16,17 ,
- Debian version 8, 9 .
- CentOS, RedHat, Oracle 7 or Amazon 2.
The Linux installer requires internet access to install R and download certain libraries for Python and R. These may be avoided in using a local repo.
The advanced installer offers multi-server configurations and custom database repository options.
- Download the bits from Pyramid's customer portal.
- Launch the installer with administrative rights ("sudo") on the a host machine (virtual or physical). See details here.
- Choose a directory location for the product installation after accepting the EULA (approx 2.5Gb for the entire installation)
- Choose a data directory location. (An SSD is highly recommended.)
- Select to install the entire product on a single machine or to choose different components to install (click here for multi-server deployments).
- Choose where to deploy the database repository (either PostgreSQL, Oracle or MS SQL Server).
- Select whether to just use the internal web server engine or to use a 3rd party web server like Microsoft IIS.
- Click Next to launch the installation
- At the last stage you are prompted to provide a username and password for the first user.
- If a multi-server setup is chosen, the user will only be prompted to provide the first-user credentials when the system recognizes that the minimum requisite servers have been installed on the network. This is the Web Server, Run Time Engine and Router.
- After some basic system initializations, the installation is completed.
- Go to http://myserver:8181 on a browser and login with the credentials set in #6.
