Installing the Database Server Daemon on GNU/Linux

Once you have created a database file structure, you must also enable the database server daemon to allow Harmony to connect to the database. This daemon runs through the user usabatch, so this user must be created prior to installing the daemon.

The Harmony installer for GNU/Linux always installs daemon scripts on your machine, but does not enable them by default. Hence, there are two approaches to installing the database server daemon:

  • By enabling the daemon that was already installed with Harmony using the chkconfig command.
  • By running the Harmony installation script with the -d parameter. This will also create a database file structure on your machine if none is present.

This daemon runs through the user usabatch, so this user must be created prior to installing the daemon.

NOTE: The following steps indicate how to make the database server daemon launch on boot, via the user usabatch. If you prefer, you can make the database server launch on log-in as the logged-in user. For more information, see Running the Database Server on Log-In on GNU/Linux.
