To install under Mac OS X, it is assumed that you are comfortable operating a shell.
The first step is to download the Mac OS X distribution archive of Ignition from our website. The Mac OS X downloads, which are zip files, are listed underneath the Windows executable installer.
After downloading the Mac OS X distribution archive, follow these directions to install Ignition as a Mac OS X service. You'll also find these directions in the distribution file's README.
* All of these commands should be run as root. Prefix everything with "sudo" or run "sudo su" first.
We're going to install Ignition into /usr/local/ignition. Run the following command, where <<ignition-macosx.zip>> is the path to the Ignition Mac OS X distribution that you downloaded.
sudo unzip <<ignition-macosx.zip>> -d /usr/local/ignition
Change directories into the install directory.
|3.||Make Files Executable|
Execute these three "chmod" commands to make files executable.
sudo chmod +x ignition.sh
sudo chmod +x ignition-gateway
sudo chmod +x gcu.sh
|4.||Create symlink in /usr/local|
ln -s /usr/local/ignition/ignition.sh ignition
sudo chmod +x ignition
|5.||Start up Ignition|
To start/stop/restart Ignition from Terminal.app, use the following:
sudo ignition start
sudo ignition stop
sudo ignition restart
That's it! Ignition is now starting up. See the README file for information about how to stop and uninstall the service.Once the Ignition Gateway starts up, your web browser will open and bring you to the Gateway Homepage >
