Installing on Debian Stretch and Buster

  1. Install the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) by running one of the following commands:

    # apt-get install openjdk-7-jre

    or

    # apt-get install openjdk-8-jre
  2. Select the default version of Java by running the following command:

    # update-alternatives --config java
    If Java is not installed or the correct version of Java is not selected, NXLog Manager will refuse to start.
  3. Download the appropriate NXLog Manager installation file from the NXLog website.

  4. Transfer the file to the target server.

  5. Install the downloaded package with the following command:

    # dpkg -i nxlog-manager_X.X.XXX_.deb
  6. If dpkg returned errors about uninstalled dependencies, use apt-get to install them and complete the NXLog Manager installation.

    # apt-get -f install
Make sure that your hostname and DNS settings are setup correctly, to avoid problems with NXLog Manager. Refer to host setup common issues for more information.
