Package installation

After downloading the software to your computer, follow these instructions (replacing 1.x.x with the actual version number) to install it.

RPM packages

On Fedora, CentOS, and RedHat use DNF to install the package with this command:

[user@host tmp]# sudo dnf install /tmp/rwserve-1.x.x-1.noarch.rpm    

DEB packages

On Ubuntu and Debian use APT to install the package with this command:

[user@host tmp]# sudo apt install /tmp/rwserve_1.x.x-1_all.deb    

TAR packages

On other operating systems, unzip the tarball into a temporary directory, create a new system user, set permissions, and copy the extracted contents to their correct destinations. Run these commands as superuser. Follow the instructions in file permissions to issue the correct chown and chmod commands.

[user@host tmp]# mkdir /tmp/rws-unpacked    
[user@host tmp]# tar -xzf /tmp/rwserve_1.x.x-1.tar.gz -C /tmp/rws-unpacked

[user@host tmp]# useradd --system rwserve
[user@host tmp]# chown -R rwserve:rwserve /tmp/rws-unpacked
[user@host tmp]# chown root:root /tmp/rws-unpacked/usr/lib/systemd/system/rwserve.service
[user@host tmp]# find /tmp/rws-unpacked -type d -exec chmod 0750 {} \;
[user@host tmp]# find /tmp/rws-unpacked -type f -exec chmod 0640 {} \;

[user@host tmp]# cp -p /tmp/rws-unpacked/etc/rwserve/rwserve.conf /etc/rwserve/rwserve.conf
[user@host tmp]# cp -p /tmp/rws-unpacked/usr/lib/systemd/system/rwserve.service /usr/lib/systemd/system/rwserve.service
[user@host tmp]# cp -rp /tmp/rws-unpacked/usr/lib/node_modules/. /usr/lib/node_modules
[user@host tmp]# cp -rp /tmp/rws-unpacked/srv/rwserve/. /srv/rwserve

Post installation

Follow the important post-installation steps outlined in the RWSERVE Post-installation note.


You must activate the software after installing it. When you are ready to do this, have your customer number (looks like CN-xxx-yyyyy) and access key (looks like AK-xxx-yyyyy) available.

The server section must contain a registration section with two entries: customer-number and access-key.

server {
registration {
customer-number CN-xxx-yyyyy
access-key AK-xxx-yyyyy

Refer to the RWSERVE Registration documentation for an example showing how to do this.
