Yarkon Server will run on any major distribution of Linux, such as Ubuntu, Fedora, REHL and EPEL. In this manual we provide the steps using Ubuntu as an example, but it should be the same for other distributions.
We recommend that you run Yarkon Server on an EC2 instance, but you can run it on any server; in fact, for the trial, you can run it using a local VM running on your personal computer.
Using an EC2 instance
Provision your preferred Linux flavor from the AWS MarketPlace. For instance, choose Ubuntu 18.04 LTS - Bionic, a free software. The instance type required for Yarkon Server depends on your usage profile, but in general Yarkon Server does not require a powerful server. For the trial version, you can choose a t2.small instance or similar.
Once the instance is provisioned and ready, ssh into it and copy the files into a folder of your choice. When using AWS, it is common to use the folder /var/app/current/, but you can choose any other folder.
Here is one example of how you can get it done (using yarkon-server-trial.v309-304 here, your version will be different):
Using a generic Unix server
For the purpose of demonstration, the following steps were done using a virtual machine, in this case an Ubuntu 18.04 guest running on a Mac, a very common set up for a development machine.
From the Ubuntu machine, open a shell window and do the following:
Using an AMI
We will be offering an AMI (Amazon Machine Instance) option for Yarkon Server in a future release.
