Installing on Unix Manually
In some rare cases, Logi JReport Server may fail to install on Unix directly. In this case, follow the steps below to install it manually:
- Install Logi JReport Server on Windows following the steps in Installing on Windows, but don't start it.
- Prepare a directory on Unix where you will copy the installation, for example
- Modify javahome and reporthome in the following files in
<install_root>\binto the Unix directories where the Java JDK is located and the directory you are going to copy the release to, using absolute path. Be sure to modify them carefully. Any mistake will cause problems starting Logi JReport.
- Modify javahome in the file env.sh in
<install_root>\derby\binto the Unix directory where the Java JDK is located, using absolute path.
- Delete the file server.properties from
<install_root>\binif it exists and remember to reset the required configuration settings on the Logi JReport Administration page after launching Logi JReport Server on Unix. The server.properties file is created if you use the custom format to install.
- Make a zip or jar archive of the above folders, and then copy it to your Unix system (use binary format if using FTP).
- Extract the folder in the destination directory in accordance with the path defined in the property files.
- Use the
dos2unixcommand to convert all the .sh files under
<install_root>/binto the format that can be recognized by Unix. You can execute the command like this:
$ dos2unix *.sh
- Use the
chmodcommand to set the converted files under
<install_root>/binto have read, write and execute permission. You can execute the command like this:
$ chmod 777 *.sh
- Start a shell (Console) and login as root or become the root user by running the
sucommand. Make JRServer.sh executable and then start Logi JReport Server by running
