Setup: Installation

Linux Installation

AWS EC2 Process

If you need help creating and connecting to an AWS EC2 instance from Windows using Putty, view this documentation: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/putty.html

Automated Setup

This installer works with the following distributions:

  • Ubuntu 20.04 or 22.04 **Recommended
  • CentOS 8
  • RedHat 8
  • Amazon Linux AMI 2

Note: The automated installer should cover the vast majority of setups, but each server is different and may require commands specific to your IT infrastructure.

After running the command above:

  1. SSH into your web server, ensure you're using a user that has full sudo access, and run the command below:

     curl -s -o curator.sh https://api.curator.interworks.com/scripts/linux_install.sh && chmod +x ./curator.sh && ./curator.sh
  2. Locate your license key (sent from InterWorks) as well as /var/www/curator_info.txt to retrieve user credentials.

  3. Open http://curatorexample.com/install.php in a browser - replacing curatorexample.com with your site's URL. If you're on the server you installed, you may also use localhost. Keep in mind this may be an IP address or computer name until your IT team sets up DNS.

  4. Follow the steps to finalize your installation using the license key and credentials from step #1.

  5. Login to the backend of Curator using the credentials from step #1 and start your configuration! The backend can be accessed from http://curatorexample.com/backend.

Custom Setup

The install script can take optional parameters to set specific values at launch. This can be helpful in distributed setups, or scripted installations. bash curl -o curator.sh https://api.curator.interworks.com/scripts/linux_install.sh chmod +x ./curator.sh ./curator.sh -f -h [put_your_database_host_here] -u [username for db here] -p [password_for_db_here] -P [database_port_here] -d [database_name_here] -l [license_key_here] -s [persistent_storage_location_here] -v [curator_version_here]

The install script's flags are as follows:

- -f Full Installation, this flag is required in most custom setups to avoid the in-browser installer.
- -h The database hostname (*This is needed if using an external database host.*)
- -u The database username  (*Default: tableau_portal*)
- -p The database password (*This is needed if using an external database, or if you would like to specify a
specific password when creating the local database. By default, the installer will automatically generate a secure password.*)
- -P The database port (*This is needed if using an abnormal port for an external database. The default port is 3306.*)
- -d The database name (*Default: tableau_portal*)
- -l The License Key for your Curator installation. When performing a full installation, this is required.
- -s Location of a persistent storage location (*If installing a distributed system, or on a Docker container, a
persistent filesystem may be needed to share uploaded files across instances.*)
- -v Specify the version of Curator to be installed (Defaults to latest version if not included. Versions older than
**2021.08.04-05** can't be installed.)

Advanced Setup

The automated installations install and configure LAMP environment and dependencies using standard Linux repositories. In rare situations, a more manual installation may be required. If this is the case, consult our technicians for guidance.
