Installing Absolute Service using the Installer

Version 1

    Details

    PROBLEM
    This documents how to install LiveTime using the Installer.jar file.

    ENVIRONMENT
    LiveTime

    RESOLUTION
    To install LiveTime using the Installer.jar file, first download and install the 64 bit version of the Java JDK. If using Linux on a terminal/SSH only connection, the Java site can be difficult to download from using a text based browser like Links due to having to accept the license so it might be easier to download the JDK on different machine and then to copy it over to the Linux box after. If copying from a Windows, box a tool like Cygwin can allow a scp transfer from Windows to Linux as one method of transferring it over. Note: To avoid any possible conflicts, if this is to run over standard http/https ports (80/443), no other web server software (eg Apache/IIS) should be running on the machine.
    Next, the installer is run:
    On a Windows box, it is usually possible to just double click the jar file to start it. If not, it can be run by entering the following at a command prompt: java -jar Installer.jar If this doesn't work, first change to the folder (using the cd command) that holds the JDK java.exe file. Typically this would be running something like the following, although the exact location and version number involved may differ: cd "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_04\bin"
    On Linux/Mac, the installer can be run using the same command line syntax as above if called from a GUI (X-Windows/Gnome/KDE/etc) environment. Similarly, it may be necessary to reference the java file in the jdk/bin folder when calling it. If calling from a remote SSH/terminal or non GUI environment, then run the following: java -jar Installer.jar -console (To reference the exact java version, something like /usr/local/jdk/bin/java can be used, although the path may differ depending on where it was installed, or if the location is changed to the folder containing the java installation, use ./java) During the install process, remember the installation location as this will be used again when updating LiveTime. If this needs to run on the standard web port of 80, remember to enter this as the port when prompted. If this is to run over SSL (https), this is configured later.
