Step by step guide

To start off, prepare the installation directory of dbWatch.

Execute the following commands:

  • Create a new directory for dbWatch: sudo mkdir –p /usr/local/dbWatch
    Then input the root or super user password.
  • Change the owner of the directory to the user dbWatch: sudo chown dbwatch.dbwatch /usr/local/dbWatch
  • Change the access mode of the directory by executing: sudo chmod 750 /usr/local/dbWatch
  • Download the installer file by running the command(the file will be saved on your current path): wget —no-check-certificate
  • Grant permission to execute the installer by running: sudo chmod +x
  • Run the installation file by typing: sudo ./
  • A window will appear, specify your preferred destination directory for dbWatch.
  • In this window you can choose to upgrade to an existing dbWatch installation. Right now, we’re doing a fresh install so let’s continue by clicking next.
  • We will install a new dbWatch server and use the default port.
  • Input your preferred password for the default admin user.
  • If you proceed without entering the license key dbWatch will allow you to monitor a maximum of 3 database instance.
    But if you enter the test license key, which was sent by dbWatch to your email, you will be allowed to use the application to monitor a maximum of 25 database instances for 30 days.
  • Accept the agreement
  • Everything’s set we can now install dbWatch on our machine.
  • And now we’ve completed installing dbWatch in Linux. Let’s start the dbWatch monitor.

  • We have successfully configured and started dbWatch in Ubuntu.
