Installing WebCC on GNU/Linux

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 WebCC server daemon:

  • By enabling the daemon that was already installed with Harmony using the chkconfig command.
  • By running the Harmony installation script with the -w parameter.

The installation of a WebCC server also requires copying a script from the Harmony installation package. The installer does this automatically when it is launched with the -w parameter. If you choose to enable the WebCC daemon manually, you will also have to copy this script manually.

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 WebCC 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 macOS.
