The PulseUno installation wizard for Linux guides you through the installation process step-by-step.

Before installing, ensure that you have fulfilled the prerequisites. For details, see Before you install.

To install PulseUno on Linux:

    To extract the installer using a command line, run this command:

    Copy code
    tar xvf <PulseUno-installer>.tar
  3. Launch the installation wizard. To launch from a command line, run this command:

  4. Select the language of the installer. Choose from German, English, French, or Portuguese. By default, English is selected.

    Note: This option doesn't set the language of the PulseUno user interface. The installer delivers the English version of PulseUno. To change the default UI language after the installation, see Set system properties.

  5. Read and accept the license agreement.

  6. Enter the installation path or accept the default location:

  8. Enter an encryption passphrase to connect the modules.

    Note: If you are installing each module separately, you must use the same passphrase for all the modules. You can later connect other Git and Vault instances to PulseUno using this passphrase. The passphrase is case-sensitive.

  9. If you are installing PulseUno without the Git or Vault modules:

    • To configure the Git and Vault connection, enter the hostname and port for the remote Git and Vault servers. To enable an HTTPS connection, select the HTTPS option.

    • To skip configuring the Git and Vault connection, select Do not configure PulseUno for a remote Git/Vault server. You can connect the servers after the installation. See Post-installation steps.
