Before you start...

The Lianja Cloud Server installer includes the Lianja Cloud Server, the Lianja SQL Server and the Lianja ODBC Driver.

The Lianja Server (Cloud/SQL) listens for requests on port 8001, so make sure that your firewall is not blocking access to this port.


  • Make sure root has execute permission on the downloaded file.

Open up a Terminal window. (e.g. on Ubuntu right click on the desktop and select 'Open Terminal').

5.1 and above the distro is a compressed tar file.

$ cd 
$ cd Downloads
$ tar xvf LianjaCloudServer-X.X.X-linux-x64-installer.tar.gz
$ chmod +x LianjaCloudServer-X.X.X-linux-x64-installer.bin

Prior to 5.1 the distro was not a compressed tar file.

$ cd 
$ cd Downloads
$ chmod +x LianjaCloudServer-X.X.X-linux-x64-installer.bin
  • As root or using sudo, run the installer.
$ sudo ./LianjaCloudServer-X.X.X-linux-x64-installer.bin

If you want to install without any GUI dialogs or prompts.

$ sudo ./LianjaCloudServer-X.X.X-linux-x64-installer.bin —mode unattended

Managing the Lianja Server

Managing the Lianja Server

The lianja_admin command is used to manage the Lianja Server and must be run as root or using sudo.

To check that the Lianja Server is running:

$ sudo lianja-admin status

Connecting to the Lianja Cloud Server

By default, the Lianja Cloud Server listens on port 8001.

The Lianja Web Client will start on the login page. The default username/password is admin/admin.

Web Client

Once logged in, the Lianja Web Client App Center page will be displayed.

This shows deployed web Apps (no deployed Apps are included in the installation).

Lianja Server

Further lianja-admin options are:

$ sudo lianja-admin start
$ sudo lianja-admin stop
$ sudo lianja-admin restart

For more information see Lianja Server Manager on Linux.

Lianja ODBC Driver

The Lianja ODBC Driver requires the unixODBC package. To install unixODBC:


$ sudo apt-get install unixodbc


# yum install unixODBC

Now init the ODBC definitions for Lianja. This will define the Lianja ODBC driver in /etc/odbcinst.ini and the lianja_southwind DSN in /etc/odbc.ini.

$ cd /opt/lianja/server/dist
$ ./ /opt/lianja/server odbc

For information on setting up ODBC data sources, see unixODBC without the GUI.
