CLI installer overview

The Jive command-line interface (CLI) installer provides a better way to start, stop and configure an installation, and gives you more flexibility.

The command line procedure provides a more centralized interface for running, monitoring, and troubleshooting your Jive installation. The installation also provides interactive feedback that helps you understand whether you're meeting installation and upgrade requirements and what your next steps should be. It also records your startup modifications so you can be aware of your customizations during future upgrades.

Features of the Jive CLI installer and interface

Saves time tracking down configurations
The site-specific configurations are in one place so you can easily view and override them.
Provides tools for managing the platform
We provide a single command-line interface for starting and 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 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. The root user is not necessary for the routine operation of the platform.
