Manual Installation

For various flavors of UNIX installations, Fiorano provides the .tar file which can be directly extracted to any location using GNU tar tools.
Select your installation directory, say /usr/home and place the .tar or .tar.gz file
On UNIX, extract them using the command:

The extracted files are created at the following location:

This location relates to $FIORANO_HOME

After extraction, the user is required to modify the environment variables as per instructions in script. This script is available in the installation directory. "" script file uses the system property $JAVA_HOME if it is already set.


This installer does not include bundled JRE. Fiorano recommends installing jre1.7.0_60 on the system before installing Fiorano Server and tools. However, including the complete JDK 7 is beneficial in employing a few debugging tools on FioranoMQ Server.
