Installing HFSQL on Linux
« on: February 15, 2016, 04:53:48 pm »
Copy the files manta_install and into your own Linux download directory under 'Home'.

Make manta_install executable using sudo chmod +x manta_install

Then -

sudo ./manta_install

Follow the on screen prompts. You MUST scroll and accept the readme or the INSTALL button won't appear.

The install loads the program as a service. Rebooting will start it up.

You must redirect port 4900 from the router to the HFSQL server to allow external use.

The HFSQL is very easy to install and maintain.

Note that the HFSQL is supplied under licence. It MUST be accompanied by programs developed in Windev and accessed at least by 50% of machines using Windev. It should not be seen as an easy and cheap alternative to MSSQL or MySQL and just accessed by ODBC. It has to be supplied as part of a complete package.

Note: These instructions relate to the 32 bit version, but the 64 bit is very similar. You should load the version that is the same as your operating system. You can run the 32 bit version on a 64 bit operating system.
