Installing a new version of the Management Server

Once all system requirements are in place, you are ready to install the Management Server. The installer prompts you to input data, and shows progress during the installation process.

The Foglight installer offers two installation options:

Standard — This option accepts all of the installer defaults, and installs an embedded PostgreSQL® database only. To use this option, follow the instructions in Installing the Management Server - Standard Install option.
Custom — This option allows you to modify the installer defaults, and to choose an external database type. To use this option, follow the instructions in Installing the Management Server - Custom Install option.

The Foglight installation process consists of the same basic steps for all platforms. For specific platform customizations, see Installed directories.

For more details, see these topics:
