Installing Foglight

The Foglight installer allows you either to install a new instance of the Foglight Management Server or to upgrade an existing installation of a Foglight Management Server. This guide provides the procedures for a new installation of the Management Server. For upgrade procedures, see the Upgrade Guide.

Preparing to install

The requirements for installing Foglight are:

An administrator password for Foglight. The user name foglight and the default password for this account can initially be used to log in to the browser interface and to use command-line interface options with root privileges. It is recommended that you change the default password for this account.
The IATEMPDIR environment variable is set to a location with sufficient space for installer self-extraction to meet the requirements described in the document available at: https://flexeracommunity.force.com/customer/articles/en_US/INFO/Q000054

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.

Installing the Management Server - Standard Install option

Start the installation process by initiating the executable included on the Foglight install media. Each installation screen includes a Previous button, allowing you to go back and adjust the information you have specified.
