  7. Select Next.

    If you select to install Logi Report Server in a folder that already contains an Logi Report Server, you will be prompted to choose whether to overwrite or upgrade the existing server. If you select Upgrade, the installer will replace the packages and create new batch/script files. Meanwhile a copy of the old batch/script files will be kept for your reference. You should use the batch/script files that come with the installer in order to make sure that all new packages are added to the class path and manually merge any changes you made into the new version. However, your configuration files and server runtime data of the existing copy will be kept, and you can choose to recover the previous version during the uninstallation of the newly installed Logi Report Server.

  8. In the System Environment screen (available only when the option Custom Installation for Standalone Server is selected in the Choose Installation Set screen), configure the following server system environment factors according to your requirements. System configuration can also be done in the Logi Report Server console after the server is installed and started.
    • Advanced
    • Demo
      Specifies whether to install the Logi Report demo reports and dashboards which will be available in the Public Reports folder in the server resource tree.
  9. Select Next.
  10. In the System Database screen (not available when you upgrade Logi Report Server), configure the system database as required.

    • Trial Database

Solving Installation Problems

If errors occur during the installation, you can check the log information recorded to find out what the problem is. Where logs are generated depends on when the installation process get stuck:

  • If the installation is canceled before you select the Install button in the Installation Wizard, logs are created on the desktop for Windows and in the userhome directory for Unix/Linux.
  • If the installation is canceled after you select the Install button in the Installation Wizard, logs are created in the logs folder in the installation root directory.

You can also specify the log destination that should use absolute path and log file name when launching the Installation Wizard by running the following command:

server-xxx-win64.exe -D$INSTALL_LOG_NAME$="Install.log" -D$INSTALL_LOG_DESTINATION$="D:\temp"

or

$ ./server-xxx-linux.bin -D\$INSTALL_LOG_NAME\$="Install.log" -D\$INSTALL_LOG_DESTINATION\$="/opt/temp"

Change server-xxx-win64.exe or server-xxx-linux.bin to the real file name of the installation file.
