2. Installing DFM on Ubuntu

Installing DynFi Manager on Premise in Ubuntu consist of a few easy steps.

2.1. Prerequisites

Please make sure you have Java >= 11 installed in your system and MongoDB >= 3.4 available (can also be installed in your system).

2.1.1. Checking Java

In your Command Line Interface (CLI) or “terminal” run the following:

java -version

The expected output might look like this (yours might be different):

openjdk version "11.0.6" 2020-01-14
OpenJDK Runtime Environment AdoptOpenJDK (build 11.0.6+10)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM AdoptOpenJDK (build 11.0.6+10, mixed mode)

If systems responds with something similar to:

bash: /usr/bin/java: No such file or directory

it means that Java is not installed in your system.

There are many ways to install Java 11 in your operating system. One of them is to install OpenJDK:

sudo apt-get install openjdk-11-jre-headless

It is also possible to install AdoptOpenJDK from https://adoptopenjdk.net/.

2.1.2. Checking MongoDB

To run DynFi Manager requires MongoDB as well. It can be installed on the same machine where DynFi Manager runs or it can be on another host available in your network.

If you would like to install MongoDB on your host, you can follow this tutorial.

You can connect to your MongoDB to check its version like this:

mongo --eval "db.version()"

Make sure that the line MongoDB server version shows at least version 3.4. The output might look like this:

MongoDB shell version v3.4.6
connecting to: mongodb://
MongoDB server version: 3.4.6

2.2. Installing DynFi Manager using APT repository

Once you have Java 11 working in your system and MongoDB accessible in your network (installed at the shame host for example), you can install DynFi Manager using these simple commands:

wget -q -O - http://archive.dynfi.com/dynfi.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
echo "deb http://archive.dynfi.com/ubuntu `lsb_release -cs` main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/dynfi.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y dynfi

During the installation you will see a configuration wizard which will guide you through creating default config file /etc/dynfi.conf with basic settings. (Refer to DFM Configuration for more details.)


Configuration wizard

Selecting <Save> button will finish the installation process and start DynFi Manager at selected IP and port.


If you do not see the wizard, then you do not have Java >= 11 installed properly.

Now you can configure your DynFi Manager if needed (see DFM Configuration chapter) and enjoy your DynFi Manager (see First steps with DFM chapter). In case of need for some troubleshooting you can read the DFM Logs chapter.

2.3. Upgrading DynFi Manager

If you have installed DynFi Manager using the above procedure, it will be upgraded along with any other packages when you decide to update your Operating System.

If you wish to upgrade DynFi Manager only, this is possible with:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y dynfi
