Unix Deployment

Last update: Edit

1 Introduction

Mendix can be installed on-premises on systems running Unix-like operating systems. The installation consists of the following:

  • m2ee-tools: a command line tool used for managing your Mendix installation
  • Mendix Runtime
  • Java Runtime Environment
  • Web server

The following operating systems are currently supported:

  • Debian GNU/Linux 9 (Stretch)
  • Debian GNU/Linux 8 (Jessie)
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7, CentOS 7

Installation on other Unix-like operating systems is possible, but has not been tested and cannot be supported by Mendix.

2 Technical Documentation

The documentation describing the installation and basic configuration of the Mendix software on a Unix-like system is available as part of the m2ee-tools helper program: https://github.com/mendix/m2ee-tools/tree/develop/doc/README.md.

3 License Key Activation on Linux

To activate your license key, follow these steps:

  1. Open the interactive m2ee console.
  2. Use the command show_license_information to display a generated server ID.
  3. Use the server ID to obtain a license key from Mendix (see Licensing Apps for information on requesting a license key).
  4. Activate your license on the server using the activate_license m2ee command.
