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 JAR file 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.

Note

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

Get the Binary Package

Have a look at our download area. Always pick the latest version of the package available. For manual installation either zip or tar.gz file is available. Pick one of files with filename looking like: tigase-server-x.y.z-bv.tar.gz or tigase-server-x.y.z-bv.zip where 'x', 'y', 'z' and 'v' are version numbers and they change from a release to release.

Alternatively, you may use wget

wget http://build.tigase.org/nightlies/dists/latest/tigase-server-dist-max.tar.gz

Unpack the Package

Unpack the file using command for the tar.gz file:

 $ tar -xzvf tigase-server-x.y.z-bv.tar.gz

or for the zip file:

 $ unzip tigase-server-x.y.z-bv.zip

A new directory will be created: tigase-server-x.y.z-bv/.

Sometimes after unpacking package on unix system startup script doesn’t have execution permissions. To fix the problem you have to run following command:

 $ chmod u+x ./scripts/tigase.sh

Prepare Configuration

If you look inside the new directory, it should like this output:

 $ ls -l
total 88

At the moment the most important is the etc/ directory with these files:

Configure tigase.conf

Tigase.conf is a file that contains general program operating parameters, and java settings for Tigase to run. For now, the only setting we need to set is the JAVA_HOME directory.

JAVA_HOME="${JDKPath}"

Replace ${JDKPath} with a path to Java JDK installation on your system.

Configure config.tdsl

You need also to edit the config.tdsl file. It contains initial parameters normally set by the configuration program. As this is a manual installation, you will have to edit this document yourself. It contains already a few lines:

'config-type' = 'setup'

http () {
    setup () {
        'admin-user' = 'admin'
        'admin-password' = 'tigase'
    }
}

You will need to set a few things in order to get Tigase up and running.

Step 1: Change config-type

Refer to config-type property description for details, but for most operations, change setup to default.

Step 2: Set virtual hosts

Without a virtual host, your XMPP server has no domain with which to operate. To set a virtual host use the following configuration:

'virtual-hosts' = [ 'hostname' ]

You have to replace hostname with a domain name used for your XMPP installation. Let’s say this is jabber.your-great.net. Your setting should look like this:

`'virtual-hosts' = [ 'jabber.your-great.net' ]`

There are many other settings that can be configured visit this section for details.

Step 3: Set Administrators

At least one administrator is required, and once the database is setup will have the default password of tigase. Be sure to change this once you have finished setting up your server. To add admins, use the following line in the config.tdsl file:

`admins = [ 'admin@jabber.your-great.net', 'user2jabber.your-great.net' ]`
Step 4: Set databases

You will also need to configure connection to the database. First you have to decide what database you want to use: Derby, MySQL, PostgreSQL, MSSQL, or MondoDB. Each database will have slightly different configurations. If we are using derby, in a directory called tigasedb, your configuration would look like this:

dataSource () {
    default () {
        uri = 'jdbc:derby:tigasedb;create=true'
    }
}

Consult dataSource property for more configuration info.

This is enough basic configuration to have your Tigase server installation running.

Install Database

Creating the database is the next step. Previously, we had scripts to handle this process, but we now have the advantage of functions in the tigase.sh script that can be used. Setting up the database can now be done using a single command.

./scripts/tigase.sh install-schema etc/tigase.conf -T derby -D tigasedb -H localhost -U tigase_user -P tigase_pass -R root -A rootpass -J admin@jabber.your-great.net -N pass

This command will install tigase using a Derby database on one named tigasedb hosted on localhost. The username and password editing the database is tigase_pass and root. Note that -J explicitly adds the administrator, this is highly recommended with the -N passing the password. You may customize this command as needed, refer to the install-schema section of the documentation for more information.

On a windows system, you need to call the program directly:

C:\tigase>java -cp "jars/*" tigase.db.util.SchemaManager "install-schema" -T derby -D tigasedb -H localhost -U tigase_user -P tigase_pass -R root -A rootpass -J admin@jabber.your-great.net -N pass

If this successfully passes, you should see some information printed out

Note at the end, the script will output a recommended example file. You may use this in conjunction with your written config file, but some settings may not be set using this configuration. Again, it is only an EXAMPLE.

Start the Server

You can start the server using the tigase file found in the scripts sub-directory of Tigase server base directory. There, select the type of linux you have, debian, gentoo, mendriva or redhat. In the root server directory type the following command:

./scripts/{OS}/init.d/tigase start etc/tigase.conf

Where {OS} is your *nix operating system.

and you should get the output like this:

Starting Tigase:
nohup: redirecting stderr to stdout
Tigase running pid=18103

Check if it is Working

The server is started already but how do you know if it is really working and there were no problems. Have a look in the logs/ directory. There should be a few files in there:

 $ ls -l logs/
total 40K
-rw-r--r-- 1 20K 2009-02-03 21:48 tigase-console.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 16K 2009-02-03 21:48 tigase.log.0
-rw-r--r-- 1   0 2009-02-03 21:48 tigase.log.0.lck
-rw-r--r-- 1   6 2009-02-03 21:48 tigase.pid

The first 2 files are the most interesting for us: tigase-console.log and tigase.log.0. The first one contains very limited information and only the most important entries. Have a look inside and check if there are any WARNING or SEVERE entries. If not everything should be fine.

Now you can connect with an XMPP client of your choice with the administrator account you setup earlier.
