How do I install SearchBlox on RedHat or CentOS?

Prior to installing SearchBlox, you must install OpenJDK 8 on RedHat/CentOS and ensure it uses 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

SearchBlox can be installed by running the following command:

curl -s | sh

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.

Check if the /etc/hosts has an entry for the assigned ip address and hostname, then restart the server once that is set up.
