Supported Linux Distributions

  1. Debian based: Debian 6 or newer and Ubuntu 12.04 or newer
  2. RPM based: CentOS 6 or newer, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 or newer, Oracle Linux 6 or newer, Fedora 16 or newer

Choosing  the right package

 

First step when installing is to choose the right package from http://www.pulseway.com/downloads. You should consider your Linux distribution (debian or rpm based) and if you have a 32 or 64 bit machine.

To determine the latest use the Linux command: 

uname -m

If the result of this command is something like i386,i586 or i686 then it's a 32bit machine if it's x86_64 then it's a 64bit machine.

 

Installing

Now , that you have downloaded the right install package you have to use one of 2 commands depending on the Linux distribution:

dpkg -i <package name>.deb

or

rpm -ihv <package name>.rpm

If all went well now you should have Pulseway installed on the machine. You should configuring the machine by creating a /etc/pulseway/config.xml file  using the sample located at /etc/pulseway/config.xml.sample

 

Example

We will provide two examples , first will be a Debian 6 32 bit machine and the second a Fedora 17 64 bit machine
