Webinar: Web Help Desk for HR, Facilities and Accounting Departments
This webinar will focus on use cases for HR, Facilities and Accounting.

Having a unified ticketing and asset management system for all the departments in your company can provide end-users with a seamless experience and make things easier for your IT team. Yet, with different business tasks and objectives, many departments don’t fully understand the capabilities of Web Help Desk and how the software can be customized for effective use in their departments.

Download and install DPA on UNIX/Linux

DPA 8.0 and later has a binary executable installer for UNIX and Linux.


  1. Download the install .tar file.
  2. If you need to transfer the install file to a UNIX or Linux server, make sure you do this in binary mode.  Most FTP transfer utilities transfer .tar files in binary mode by default.


  1. Untar the downloaded file and a new directory will be created. For Ignite 8.2 and higher, the directory will be named ignite_<version>, e.g. ignite_8_2_65. For Ignite 8.1 and lower, this will be named ignite_pi_<version>, e.g. ignite_pi_8_0_85.</version></version>
  2. Execute the <version> script and it will prompt for any needed information, e.g. installation directory.</version>

Complete the installation

When the installation is complete, use a browser to access the URL specified at the end of the installation process. This will start a wizard for creating the repository and registering initial instances. If a browser is used from your desktop to the server where Ignite was installed, ensure proper firewall ports (8123 by default) have been opened.


If you are upgrading from a previous version of Ignite, see this article.
