Linux is our prefered operating system to run Mango on in production enviroments.  Although Mango runs fine on Windows and Mac Linux is very stable, offers excellent performance and can be much easier to manage the system.

It is however only recomened to use Linux as your Mango operating system if you are already familiar and confortable with administering Linux systems.  For this reason these installation instructions assume knowledge of the Linux systems already exsists.

Before installing Mango you need to have Java JDK 1.8 installed. You can use OpenJDK but we recommend using Ocale JDK as faster perfomance has been observed.

You can check to see if you have it installed with 

java -version 

and

echo $JAVA_HOME

Installing mango to your system is easy. This is done by adding a directory to your system called mango

mkdir /opt/mango


Now download mango from Infinite Automation site, then move it to the newly created directory and unzip it (you may need to install the linux package 'unzip' first).

Start Mango with the start up script in the bin folder in your mango directory 

sudo ./bin/ma.sh start

Also see the wiki to install the Linux service so Mango start automatically on bootup.
