Hi Readers,

Domoticz has prepared it’s server version for all popular operation systems. Also installation process is very easy.

 

Windows

Windows installation is easy and I will not even try to tell you more about it as I am sure you know everything you need to do it.

Download: http://releases.domoticz.com/releases/release/domoticz_windows_x86.zip

 

Raspberry PI

Linux is also not so hard. I will put each command one by one with description when needed.

First you should do are three classic commands:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade

sudo apt-get install build-essential -y

sudo reboot

Then you will need to install necessary libraries, you can probably have some of them (this is one line whole command which need to be copied to your terminal:

sudo apt-get install nano cmake libboost-dev libboost-thread-dev libboost-system-dev libsqlite3-dev curl libcurl4-openssl-dev libusb-dev zlib1g-dev libssl-dev git -y

sudo reboot

Let’s download and unpack domoticz for linux:

mkdir Domoticz

cd Domoticz

wget http://releases.domoticz.com/releases/release/domoticz_linux_armv7l.tgz

tar xvfz domoticz_linux_armv7l.tgz

When everything is ready now we can add it to our startup list:

sudo cp domoticz.sh /etc/init.d
sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/domoticz.sh
sudo update-rc.d domoticz.sh defaults

Edit the startup script, esp. point DAEMON to the installation folder (but default settings should be enough):

sudo nano /etc/init.d/domoticz.sh
DAEMON=/home/YOURUSERNAME/domoticz/domoticz

If you want to use another web interface port change the ‘8080’ in: DAEMON_ARGS="$DAEMON_ARGS -www 8080" to your own port.

 

Control commands

You can now start/stop/restart domoticz with:
sudo /etc/init.d/domoticz.sh start to start Domoticz
sudo /etc/init.d/domoticz.sh stop to stop Domoticz
sudo /etc/init.d/domoticz.sh restart to restart Domoticz
sudo /etc/init.d/domoticz.sh status to check the status of Domoticz (running/not running)

 

Now you can start domoticz with:

sudo /etc/init.d/domoticz.sh start to start Domoticz

You should see:

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo /etc/init.d/domoticz.sh start
[ ok ] Starting domoticz.sh (via systemctl): domoticz.service.

 

When domoticz have started then you can connect to it and make the configuration:

http://<ip_address&gt;:8080/#/Dashboard

 

But in my next post you will be able to find more about configuration is not hard but it wasn’t so obvious for me. Good luck!
