Installing the Driven Server


  • At least one computer that is dedicated to hosting the Driven Server installation

  • Java 7 installation on the host computer


  • If you do not want to retain Driven data after the upgrade, then perform a fresh installation of the Driven Server 1.2 as documented below.

  • If you want to upgrade and migrate your data, see Migrating Your Data for a Driven Upgrade for more information.

Download and Install the Driven Server

Step 1: Download the Driven Server installation ZIP archive, which includes Apache Tomcat and embedded Elasticsearch libraries, by one of the following methods:

  • Download the ZIP archive directly with this hyperlink:

  • Alternatively, on UNIX, Linux, and Mac, run the following command:

$ wget -i

The ZIP archive is packaged to address all interdependencies.

Step 2: Unzip the Driven installation package

Extract the installation package into your installation directory, which will later be referred as ${DIR}.

$ unzip
$ cd driven-tomcat-1.2
If you already have a servlet container that you want to use as the web server, deploy the WAR file from the extracted Driven installation package as the ROOT context.

Installing Elasticsearch for Clustered Production Environments

You must perform stand-alone Elasticsearch installation if you are deploying Driven on multiple nodes and want to maintain clustered Elasticsearch datastores.

Before you begin Elasticsearch installation:

  • See the Version Requirements section of Planning a Driven Deployment to ensure that you install a compatible version of Elasticsearch.

  • Create an elasticsearch user and group on the operating system.

  • Consider increasing the open file limit for the elasticsearch user.

See Installing Elasticsearch for more information.


Continue deployment by following the steps in Configuring the Driven Server.
