Web Console installation - Linux

Follow these steps to install the ESET PROTECT Web Console:

note

Note

You can install the ESET PROTECT Web Console on a different computer than the computer where the ESET PROTECT Server is installed. This requires additional steps.

1.Install the Apache Tomcat and Java packages. Use the terminal commands depending on your Linux distribution(s). Example package names below may differ from packages available in your Linux distribution repository.

Debian and Ubuntu distributions

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install openjdk-11-jdk tomcat9

CentOS, Red Hat and Fedora distributions

yum update
yum install java-1.8.0-openjdk tomcat

OpenSUSE

zypper refresh
zypper install java-1_8_0-openjdk tomcat

2.Download the Web Console file (era.war):

wget https://download.eset.com/com/eset/apps/business/era/webconsole/latest/era.war

3.Copy the era.war file to the Tomcat folder:

Debian and Ubuntu distributions

sudo cp era.war /var/lib/tomcat9/webapps/

CentOS, Red Hat and Fedora distributions

sudo cp era.war /var/lib/tomcat/webapps/

OpenSUSE distribution

sudo cp era.war /usr/share/tomcat/webapps/

Alternatively, you can extract the contents of era.war to /var/lib/tomcat/webapps/era/

 

4.Restart the Tomcat service to deploy the .war file:

Debian and Ubuntu distributions

sudo service tomcat9 restart

CentOS, Red Hat and Fedora distributions

sudo service tomcat restart

OpenSUSE distribution

sudo service tomcat restart

5.If you installed the ESET PROTECT Web Console on a different computer than the ESET PROTECT Server, perform these additional steps to enable communication between ESET PROTECT Web Console and ESET PROTECT Server:

a)Stop the Tomcat service: sudo service tomcat stop

b)Edit the EraWebServerConfig.properties file:

sudo nano /var/lib/tomcat/webapps/era/WEB-INF/classes/sk/eset/era/g2webconsole/server/modules/config/EraWebServerConfig.properties

If the EraWebServerConfig.properties file is not located in the above path, you can use the following command to find the file on your system:

find / -iname "EraWebServerConfig.properties"

c)Find the server_address=localhost

d)Replace localhost with the IP address of your ESET PROTECT Server and save the file.

e)Restart the Tomcat service: sudo service tomcat restart

6. Open the ESET PROTECT Web Console in a supported web browser; a login screen will be displayed:

From the computer hosting the ESET PROTECT Web Console: http://localhost:8080/era

From any computer with internet access to the ESET PROTECT Web Console (substitute IP_ADDRESS_OR_HOSTNAME with the IP address or hostname of your ESET PROTECT Web Console): http://IP_ADDRESS_OR_HOSTNAME:8080/era

note

Note

The default HTTP port is set to 8080 during the manual installation of Apache Tomcat. We recommend that you set up an HTTPS connection for Apache Tomcat.
