This article outlines the installation and upgrade process and provides links to detailed installation instructions for each of the three types of EASA installer.
Before you launch the installer please read the Pre-installation issues below to identify potential system conflicts.
The EASA Help Pages provide detailed instructions on installing and testing the EASA Server and also provide solutions to many common problems. However, if further assistance is needed, especially when migrating to a newer version of EASA, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
If another web server such as Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) is already installed and listening on port 80, the EASA Server will install itself on a different port displayed during installation, usually port 8080. If no other application is running on port 80 ( IIS, Apache, often Skype, etc…) the EASA Server will install itself on HTTP port 80.
Tomcat™ (6.x or 8.x) is third party software that is required and installed as part of the EASA Server.
On computers running Windows the EASA Server is installed and configured automatically by default to run as a 'service'.
The EASA installer for Linux computers does not include a Java Runtime Environment (jre) as it did with past versions. A jre version 1.7 or later must be installed on the computer beforehand if EASA is to work properly.
Linux distributions such as Ubuntu Server should have all of the packages required to run the EASA installer and to run the EASA Server. One exception to this is C Shell (csh), which may not be included in the distribution by default but is required for correct operation of Compute Servers.
