Manual Installation in Console Mode

Our preferred way to install the Tigase server is using Web installer and configuration program which comes with one of the binary packages. Please pick up the latest version of the distribution archive in our download section.

In many cases however it is not always possible to use the web installer. In many cases you have just an ssh access or even a direct access in console mode only. We are going to provide a text-only installer in one of the next releases but for the time being you can use our binary packages to install the server manually. Please continue reading to learn how to install and setup the server in a few easy steps…​

If you have an old version of the Tigase server running and working and you intend to upgrade it please always backup the old version first.


Please note that these instructions are for *nix operating systems, and some modifications may be required for other Operating Systems!
