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:
- dbWatch Release Repository: Provides the latest dbWatch Control Center.
- 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 - https://download.bell-sw.com/pki/GPG-KEY-bellsoft | sudo apt-key add - echo "deb [arch=amd64] http://apt.bell-sw.com/ 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 - https://download.dbwatch.com/release/archive.key | sudo apt-key add - echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://download.dbwatch.com/release/ 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.
