Before You Start

Before installing the dbWatch Control Center, note that the installer requires root privileges. For simplicity, this documentation demonstrates steps executed as the root user. You may use ‘sudo’ as an alternative.

This guide is for Ubuntu Server 20.04.5 LTS with a minimal setup, including an OpenSSH server. OpenSSH is optional unless remote access is required.

Adding Apt Repositories

Two trusted repositories must be added:

  1. dbWatch Release Repository: Provides the latest dbWatch Control Center.
  2. Bellsoft Repository: Hosts the required Java version.

Adding the Bellsoft Repository

Bellsoft’s installation guide is available here. For quick setup, execute the following commands:

wget -q -O - | sudo apt-key add -
echo "deb [arch=amd64] stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/bellsoft.list

Adding the dbWatch Release Repository

Execute these commands to add the dbWatch repository:

wget -q -O - | sudo apt-key add -
echo "deb [arch=amd64] stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/dbwatch.list

Installing the Software

Update packages and install the dbWatch Control Center:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install dbwatch-controlcenter

Starting the Service

Start the dbWatch Control Center service with:

sudo service dbwatch-controlcenter start

After installation, proceed to Initial Domain Setup.
