The new Jive command-line interface (CLI) installer provides a better way to start,
stop and configure an installation, and gives you more flexibility.
We've streamlined the command line procedure to provide a more centralized interface for
running, monitoring and troubleshooting your Jive installation. The installation also now
provides interactive feedback that will help you understand whether you're meeting
installation and upgrade requirements and what your next steps should be. It even records your
startup modifications so you can be aware of your customizations during future upgrades.
Benefits of the New Jive CLI Installer and Interface
Saves time tracking down configurations
The site-specific configurations you've always had to make at the command line when
installing the Jive platform are now in one place so you can easily view and override
Provides tools for managing the platform
We provide a single command-line interface for starting/stopping services and
configuring the startup environment.
Enables separation of roles in the IT environment
If your organization prefers to separate the root administration and application
administration roles, you can now install the application in a custom location other
than the default /usr/local/jive, and run commands using a different
user account than the default "jive" user. Whether you use this capability or not, the
root user is no longer necessary for the routine operation of the platform.
