Debian / Ubuntu
SADE is provided as Debian package for Debian based Linux distributions like Ubuntu.
Installation from command line
Latest snapshot development packages can be downloaded from https://ci.de.dariah.eu/packages/pool/snapshots/s/sade/
After downloading the latest Debian package, install it from command line
sudo dpkg -i sade_*.deb
while selecting the appropriate version and date of the package. After the package's installation, eXist-db fires up and is available at http://localhost:8080/.
Installation with Debian's Software Center
Another option to install SADE is using Debian's Software Center. First, download a SADE Debian package as described above and double click on it from your desktop environments file manager. The Software Center should launch and guide you through the installation.
As soon as the installation is complete, eXist-db takes a moment to fire up and is then available at http://localhost:8080/.
All Operating Systems
Make sure you have Java installed at least in version 1.8.
Download SADE as a zip file:
- latest release - recommended
- lastest unstable and untested build
artifacts.zip file and change to the
build/sade/bin directory. Start the service with
./startup.sh (Linux/Mac) or
startup.bat (Windows). If you are experiencing problems starting SADE this way you may also try to change to the
build/sade directory and enter
java -jar start.jar jetty from the command line.
Finally, eXist-db's front and back end are available at http://localhost:8080/ and the local SADE is visible at http://localhost:8080/exist/apps/sade/index.html.
How to log in
SADE is initialized with a default superuser
admin with an empty password.
Caution: Provide the superuser
admin with a password, if you plan to deploy your SADE instance to a server.
