Self-managed Server Debian Installation

This guide is intended for IT professional responsible for installing the ActivityInfo Self-managed Server in an on-premise server running Debian or Ubuntu Linux.

Introduction

The ActivityInfo Self-managed Server for Debian Linux is distributed as a single Debian Archive (.deb) containing an embedded application, webserver, database, and everything else required to run ActivityInfo.

Getting started

Download and install the latest version of ActivityInfo Debian Archive, or run the following shell commands:

wget https://www.activityinfo.org/support/downloads/self-managed/activityinfo_4_0_15.deb
sudo dpkg -i activityinfo_4_0_15.deb

The package will install the ActivityInfo Self-managed server to /opt/activityinfo and configure and start a service called activityinfo.

The service will listen on port 80 for HTTP, and 443 for HTTPS once an SSL certificate is configured. You may need to configure your firewall to allow inbound connections on these ports.

Additional configuration

Next, follow the instructions in the Configuration guide to configure Email delivery, an SSL certificate, and Single Sign-On.
