hi, good morning to everyone,
I am new at linux and I am building a network
I want to put the wildfire on a server linux (ubuntu), but I dont know how I can download the program, can some one help me plese,
I read some of the documentation but I couldnt (http://www.jivesoftware.org/builds/wildfire/docs/latest/documentation/install-gu ide.html)
thanks for your help
see you soon
you can use wget to download the rpm bundle.
rpm -Uvh --test “the name of the rpm”
if this gives no errors, run the same command again without the --test
you will find the bundle installed under /opt/ in directory wildfire
so wget http://www.jivesoftware.org/downloadServlet?filename=wildfire/wildfire_3_1_1.rpm
if you don’‘t like rpm or don’'t have root access you may use the tar.gz version as described in http://wiki.jivesoftware.org/display/WILDFIRE/LinuxInstallationGuide
thanks for the information, but i try with both and I couldnt, I am using the ubuntu server (is only teh console), when i start the wildfire it appears a error that java can not start, I have installed, but I cant.
is there a nother way to do it?
does wildfire works on console?
see you soon
thanks but the comand is not valind on my server, i think ubuntu dosent use rpm.
is there a nother wasy?
ubuntu doesnt use rpm… it uses the apt-get. if you would need to download something from wildfire and need root permission to download and install on Ubuntu server an example command would be:
sudo wget http://packagedownloadlocation - to download the package
sudo apt-get install package - this would install your new package as the root user.
Also on a Ubuntu machine you can change the root password and logout and then login as root user. This keeps you from having to type the sudo everytime you want to execute something with root user permissions.
type this command:
and tell us what it says
Yes, Wildfire “works on console”. It doesnt need GUI that is.
On my debian system, once I made sure I had java working, i did this to install wildfire in my home directory:
morocco:~$ mkdir wildfire_base
morocco:~$ cd wildfire_base
morocco:~$ wget -O wildfire_3.1.1.tar.gz http://www.jivesoftware.org//downloadServlet?filename=wildfire/wildfire_3_1_1.ta r.gz
morocco:~$ tar xfz wildfire_3.1.1.tar.gz
morocco:~$ cd wildfire
morocco:~$ nano conf/wildfire.xml
see http://www.jivesoftware.org/builds/wildfire/docs/latest/documentation/install-gu ide.html for details on what needs done from here…
morocco:~$ ~/wildfire_base/wildfire/bin/wildfire start
