To prepare for installation, follow these steps:
Note: In some cases, you may have modified aspen.custom.properties in your old installation of s-Server. You will need to move this file from the old installation directory to the new installation directory before you uninstall the old version. Some users may have also modified bin/defineAspenRuntime.sh and need to move this file as well.
|2.||Identify the directories where s-Server will be installed. By default, if you are installing as sudo (see below) s-Server installs into the /opt/ directory. Most users can accept the default options. See the topic Appendix: SQLstream s-Server Installation Directories in this guide for more detail.|
Installing as Sudo/Root vs. Installing as a Regular User
For most production environments, you will want to install s-Server as sudo, as doing so lets you run s-Server run as a service called s-serverd. With this option, the system logs will also be written under /var/log.
In some cases, you might wish to install as a regular user, particularly if
|•||You are a developer, and you know that only you are going to use the server. Usually, you would do so as a trial. In this case, you would install s-Server in your own user directory and have access to all the files yourself.|
|•||You need to install multiple servers on the same computer and you want to manage them under separate users. (This is not a common use case, and it would be best to consult SQLstream technical support if you are doing so.)|
