Linux systems

To start Linkurious Enterprise, run the start.sh script in the linkurious-linux directory.

Alternatively, run the menu.sh script and click Start Linkurious.

By default, Linkurious Enterprise server will listen for connection on port 3000. However, some firewalls block network traffic ports other than 80 (HTTP). See the Web server configuration documentation to learn how to make Linkurious Enterprise listen on port 80.

Alternatively, run the menu.bat script and click Start Linkurious.

Docker Linux

  1. Port configuration

The Linkurious Enterprise docker image exposes the ports 3000 and 3443 for http and https connections respectively. These ports should we mapped on the host machine to allow user connections.

Please visit the docker documentation to learn how publish the ports of a container.

  1. Volume configuration

Even if not strictly necessary, the best practice is to define external named volumes to store application data outside the container.

The Linkurious Enterprise docker image doesn't declare any volume, however below folders should be maintained when upgrading Linkurious Enterprise and therefore should be mapped to external volumes:

  • The first folder located at /data stores Linkurious Enterprise configuration, logs and application data.
  • The second folder located at /elasticsearch stores the Embedded ElasticSearch data.

Please visit the docker documentation to learn how the configure volumes.

Here is an example to create named volumes (an arbitrary name can be chosen):

docker volume create lke-data
docker volume create lke-elasticsearch

To start a Linkurious Enterprise docker image, please use the docker run command. Here is an example:

 docker run -d --rm \
     -p 3000:3000 \
     --mount type=volume,src=lke-data,dst=/data \
     --mount type=volume,src=lke-elasticsearch,dst=/elasticsearch \
     linkurious:2.8.5

If you choose to mount a host machine folder as a volume please make sure that the user within the container has read and write access to the volume folders. You can do that by adding a --user option to the docker run command. Please read the docker documentation to learn more.

Here is an example:

 docker run -d --rm \
     -p 3000:3000 \
     --mount type=bind,src=/path/to/my/data/folder,dst=/data \
     --mount type=bind,src=/path/to/my/elasticsearch/folder,dst=/elasticsearch \
     --user linkurious:1000 \
     linkurious:2.8.5
