Yes, you can automate the installation of SearchBlox on *nix servers by using the following script. You can also download the script for your own customization. This script installs SearchBlox as a service on port 80 and turns on the firewall for security.
Please install OpenJDK 8 on RedHat/CentOS prior to installing SearchBlox and ensure it is the default java runtime.
You can install OpenJDK 8 by running the following command:
su -c "yum install java-1.8.0-openjdk"
yum install wget
Check if the /etc/hosts has an entry for the assigned IP address and host name. Restart the server once that is set up.
Manually run /opt/searchblox/startSearchBlox first (and then CTRL-C to kill after it is up and running) before the “Service SearchBlox start” command is run.
