Geoserver install

So that I remember, should I ever need to do this again:

1) download the binary files from the geoserver website – geoserver.org/display/GEOS/Latest You want the ones that are labeled Binary (OS independent)

2) unzip the file (in this case version 2.4, RC1)

unzip geoserver-2.4-RC1-bin.zip

3) change directory into the binary directory of the unzipped file

cd geoserver-2.4-RC1/bin

4) run the startup script

./startup.sh

5) if there is a Java error then chech which version you have installed using

which java

if nothing is installed then use

sudo apt-get-install openjdk-7-jdk

check where it is installed using the ‘which’ command again and then set the JAVA_HOME variable

export JAVA_HOME=/usr

exit the terminal and start a new one. Navigate back to the bin directory of the geoserver extracted file

6) run geoserver

./startup.sh

7) When the command line output halts and you see ‘Started SelectChannelConnection’ then goto a local browser and type

localhost:8080

choose the second option to start the geoserver admin panel and login with the default details user=admin, passwd=geoserver
