Step-by-step ESMC Server installation on Linux

In this installation scenario we will simulate step-by-step installation of ESMC Server and ESMC Web Console. We will simulate installation using MySQL.

Before installation

1.Verify that the database server is present in your network and make sure you have access to it on your local/remote server. If no database server is installed, install and configure a new one.

2.Download ESMC Linux standalone components (Agent, Server, Web Console). You can find these installation files in the ESMC Standalone Installers category available on the ESET website.
