Installation guide 2.X.X

As you probably read on About page, key requirement is to have freshly installed stable release of Linux Debian system (at the moment for PrivCore 2.X.X versions it’s Debian9 Stretch). Be aware that your system should have set full DNS name, including host and domain parts. You can check that with hostname command, for eg. :

# hostname -f

Here you can see, that my hostname is “privcore“, and domain “local“.

If you have freshly installed system with access to root user, and didn’t mess up default configuration, then you are ready to go.

  • As a first step you should upgrade packages to newest versions, if you installed your system a while ago
    # apt-get update
    # apt-get upgrade
    # shutdown -r now
    # tar -zxf privcore-<version>.tgz
  • Run the setup and answer a few simple questions
    # cd privcore-<version>
    # ./

PrivCore 1.0, setup, main menu


Note: If frame characters on setup screen are messed up, you may need to adjust TERM variable, for eg:

    # export TERM=putty
    # ./
