Our preferred way to install the Tigase server is using GUI 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 this is not always possible to use the GUI 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.
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.
