iDashboards can be installed on any Operating System that supports a Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) Web Application server. Because Linux does support application servers such as Apache Tomcat, iDashboards can be installed on a Linux or Unix-like Operating System.
There are numerous methods of installing applications on Linux, and exact steps may differ based on your type of Linux server. The attached documents will detail the steps to install iDashboards on a Red Hat based platform (CentOS) or Debian based platform (Ubuntu). Remember that these documents are only a guide; you or your server administrator may have other preferred methods of installing applications. A more generalized installation guide can be found in the iDashboards Administrator’s Manual under Chapter 3.4 “Manual Installation”.
