Installing PRIZM Core on Linux

Step 1

Now, we install prizm-dist and jre. The Prizm core is written in Java, so we need jre under Linux:

  1. Download jre ( Linux x64 Compressed Archive - jre-8u281-linux-x64.tar.gz)

  2. Extract a prizm-dist-1.10.4.6-linux.tgz:

    • Change to the directory «home»: cd /home/

    • Move the .tar.gz archive binary to the current directory.

    • Unpack the tarball: tar zxvf prizm-dist-1.10.4.6-linux.tgz

    • Delete prizm-dist-1.10.4.6-linux.tgz

  3. Extract a jre in prizm-dist folder:

    • Move jre tar.gz to /home/prizm-dist/

    • Let's now extract the zip file into that folder:

tar zxvf jre-8u281-linux-x64.tar.gz

Delete jre-8u202-linux-x64.tar.gz

Result:

/home/
|— prizm-dist/
| |— conf/
| |— jre/
| | |— [jre files]
| |— prizm_db/
| |— html/
| |— logs/
| |— run.sh
| |— run_test.sh
| |— prizmEngine.jar

Step 2

Yep!), we installed prizm-dist and jre. And so, the following step we will adjust prizm.default.properties:

  1. We open conf/prizm.default.properties

  2. Move to line 61 (myAddress=) and insert your address.

  3. Move to line 250 (prizm.adminPassword) and insert your password.

  4. Save prizm.default.properties

Step 3

Testing and running prizmEngine:

  1. Run the run-test.sh and see if there are any errors?

  2. I hope that number of errors is 0 and we move to next step.

  3. Open the browser and input: ip:9976

Where ip: IP = prizm.myAddress. if you see index.html file and stable connection then all is well.

  1. Kill java process:

    • First command: ps -A | grep java

    • Output of this command will give the list of java processes running on your system. Note down Process ID (PID) prizmEngine.jar.

    • Second command: kill -9 PID

    • Wait 3 minutes while databases prizmEngine are closed.

    • Start run.sh and be connected to the ip:9976

    • Done!
