Linux Installs

Linux installers are provided as the "advanced" server installer only. The Linux installer is tuned for each distribution:

  • Ubuntu version 18, 20
  • Debian version 11
  • CentOS version 7, 8
  • RedHat version 7, 8
  • Oracle version 7
  • Amazon version 2
  • For Windows installations, click here.
  • For unattended command line installation, click here.
  • For System Requirements, click here.

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.

Server Installation

The advanced installer offers multi-server configurations and custom database repository options.

  1. Download the bits from Pyramid's customer portal.
  2. Launch the installer with administrative rights ("sudo") on the a host machine (virtual or physical). See details here.
  3. Choose a directory location for the product installation after accepting the EULA (approx 2.5Gb for the entire installation)
  4. Choose a data directory location. (An SSD is highly recommended.)
  5. Select to install the entire product on a single machine or to choose different components to install (click here for multi-server deployments).
  6. Choose where to deploy the database repository (either PostgreSQL, Oracle or MS SQL Server).
  7. Select whether to just use the internal web server engine or to use a 3rd party web server like Microsoft IIS.
  8. Click Next to launch the installation
  9. At the last stage you are prompted to provide a username and password for the first user.
    1. 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.
  10. After some basic system initializations, the installation is completed.
  11. Go to http://myserver:8181 on a browser and login with the credentials set in #6.
