This section describes how ApacheDS can be installed and started at different platforms.
We provide native installers for several platforms:
You can download them from here.
An option for people familiar with tools like Subversion and Maven is to built the server from the sources on their own. This is described here.
Installing can be easily done using the Windows installer. Its interface and functionality is similar to other wizard based installers.
To install the ApacheDS as Windows service you need Administrator privileges.
The server can be started and stopped with the Service Configuration Manager (Programs -> apacheds -> Service Settings). You must be admin to do this.
The Service Configuration Manager also allows the configuration of several windows service settings such as:
For details look at the next page 1.4. Basic configuration tasks
If you want to install ApacheDS as daemon in /etc/init.d, you need root privileges.
// Get the apacheds Linux binary, and copy it where you want the server be installed. chmod u+x apacheds-1.5.4-i386.bin ./apacheds-1.5.4-i386.bin
You will get a list of proposed installation directories that you can change. Remember that you must be root to be able to install the server correctly.
After installing the application there is one step left to start the server:
[root]# /etc/init.d/apacheds start
[user]# /usr/local/apacheds-1.0.0/bin/server.init start
Stopping the server works equivalent
[root]# /etc/init.d/apacheds stop
[user]# /usr/local/apacheds-1.0.0/bin/server.init stop
