Running the Server

Part of the installation process is selection of Tigase base directory. This is where you can find all important server files. Installer will create some configurable shortcuts in the Start Menu. You can navigate to the menu and use it to start the server. To run the server manually:

  • On a Linux system you may start the server using the file found in the scripts sub-directory of Tigase server base directory. In the root server directory type the following command:

    ./scripts/ start etc/tigase.conf
  • Of course if you have a custom config file then change last command appropriately.
  • On a Windows platform you can use a bat file to run the server. There is a run.bat file in the Tigase root directory. Just double click it in Explorer or run it from command line to start the server. A window with server log output will pop-up.
