Using the Command Line Installer

The command-line wizard is equivalent to the graphical one but it runs on the command line and does not require support for a graphical interface.

The steps are the same as in the graphical installer. For example:

  • There are two installation modes:

    1. “express” (also known as “Default installation”): this is the recommended option for most users. You can select the modules you want to install and they will be installed with their default configuration values.

    2. “custom” : recommended for advanced users. You will be able to set the values of several configuration parameters such as the ports where the Denodo Platform servers will listen for incoming connections.

  • Select which modules you want to install.

To start the command-line installer do the following:

  1. Decompress the Denodo Platform installer. The section Download the Installer explains which one you should download.

  2. Execute the following:

    1. If on Windows, open a command line as an administrator and execute this:

      cd denodo-install-6.0
      installer_cli.bat install
    2. If on Linux:

      unset DISPLAY
      cd denodo-install-6.0
      chmod +x
      ./ install

      The command UNSET DISPLAY removes the DISPLAY variable from the environment. This is necessary because the command-line installer will not start if the variable DISPLAY is set and the host does not have graphical support.

  3. Follow the steps. The meaning of each parameter is explained in the section that describes how to use the graphical installer (section Using the Graphical Installation Wizard)

    There are options where at the end you will see something like “(default: 9097)”. This means that if you press Enter, that will be the selected value.


    When installing on Windows, we strongly recommend to install the Denodo Platform on the root of the drive (e.g. “C:DenodoDenodo Platform”) and not in “C:\Program files” nor “C:\Program files (x86)”.

    As the Denodo Platform writes data in the directory where is installed, installing outside “Program Files” avoids issues caused by the protections of the Windows User Account Control (UAC).
