The Ignite PI installation is automated and typically succeeds. In circumstances where it does not, follow the steps outlined in this article to install Ignite on UNIX/Linux manually.

Note: The following steps use an example for Ignite PI production version 8.1.215 and the steps use filenames that match that install.  Depending on the install that you downloaded, you might also see "tf" and "v" in the filenames.

Prerequisite: The server that you are manually installing Ignite on must already have java version 1.2 or higher installed.

1. Download the Ignite .tar file (e.g. ignite_pi_8_1_215.tar) from the Confio web site.  The .tar contains the automated installer.

2. Untar the download file.

  • This will create a directory with the Ignite version in the directory name (e.g. ignite_pi_8_1_215).
  • The directory contains the installer .sh file (e.g.

3. Run the following to untar the installer contents into a target directory (e.g. pi_8_1_215). For example:

sh  --noexec  --target pi_8_1_215

Note: To omit any file checks try 'SETUP_NOCHECK=1 ./*sh'  

 Afterwards, you will see 3 files in the target directory:

    • license.txt

4. In the target directory, run


5. If the fails, try step A (1 or 2), then step B:

A1. Use java to extract the zip. Java must be in the path, or you must quality the java command with the directory that java is installed in.  For example:

java -classpath  .  com.confio.ignite.installer.ZipExtractor  /home/<some/>/confio


A2. Use a zip tool to extract the zip (e.g.


B. Set file permissions.  For example:

find  "/home/<some>/confio/ignite_8_1_215"  -name  "*.sh"  -exec chmod 775 {} \;</some>
