Getting started: Starting Linkurious

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.

Windows systems

To start Linkurious Enterprise, run the start.bat script in the linkurious-windows directory.

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

The firewall of Windows might ask you to authorize connections to Linkurious Enterprise. If so, click on Authorize access.

Content of the linkurious-windows directory:

Linkurious Enterprise starting up on Windows:

Mac OS X systems

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

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

Docker Linux

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:2.10.7

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:2.10.7

Kubernetes

Please read the previous section on starting a Linkurious Enterprise instance using docker, and the section on fault tolerance.

A simple way to test out Linkurious Enterprise using kubernetes is to create a simple deployement, using only one replica, and allocate a PersistentVolume for both of the volumes (lke-data, lke-elasticsearch) described above.

In production however you would want to follow the fault tolerance guide and use a StatefulSet, with a main/failover strategy, and the appropriate strategy configured for your load-balancer or ingress.
