Sentora Installers

Welcome to the Sentora Installation Script Git repository, this provides a central place to store, version and distribute Sentora installer and upgrade scripts from.

How to install Sentora

Our installation script currently support the following operating systems/distributions:

  • CentOS 6 and 7
  • Ubuntu 12.04 and 14.04
  • Debian 7 and 8

Preliminary install information can be found here: Sentora Documentation

To install use the latest 'stable' and officially supported version, please use the following command:

bash <(curl -L -Ss http://sentora.org/install)

Please report any errors that you may find with the installers to our bug tracking system.

Alternatively (and for testing purposes only) you can install the latest MASTER version like so:

bash <(curl -L -Ss https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sentora/sentora-installers/master/sentora_install.sh)

Please note that the MASTER branch installer above is ONLY recommended for developers and project staff!

Upgrade and Uninstaller scripts

Upgrade scripts are still available on this repository for later use and/or reference purposes only. At present we DO NOT recommend their use.

Uninstaller scripts, much like the Upgrade scripts are not recommended for use at present but we also need to make it clear that although they remove most of the packages installed by the Sentora Installation scripts they will not leave your OS in his initial state given the large amount of customisations that our installation scripts make.

Official maintainers

The officially supported operating system installer and upgrade scripts are maintained internally by members of the official Sentora team.

We encourage third-party installation scripts of which we will gladly host on this repository and promote the use of in the event that we get interest by community members. If you are interested in maintaining an installation and upgrade script for another OS/distribution please see the Want to contribute section below for more information.

Want to contribute

There are a couple of ways in which you can contribute, firstly you can make improvements or fix 'bugs' in the existing 'officially maintained' installers of which we feel will usually be minimal as we keep on top of these installer/upgrade scripts and frequently review them.

The other way in which you can contribute is to become an 'community maintainer' this means that you are responsible for the creation and maintenance of installation and upgrade scripts for non-official supported operating systems/distributions.

In most cases you will simply be able to copy and paste our official installer and upgrade scripts and just make the required OS/distribution specific changes such as file/directory paths and operating system/distribution specific package configuration amendments.

If you are interested in becoming an community maintainer please email info@sentora.org stating your interest in becoming a community maintainer and the OS/distribution that you wish to maintain.

Please be aware that community supported install and upgrade scripts that we will host and promote must adhere to the following rules:

  • Must be kept up to date with the latest release of the OS.
  • Will be licensed under the GPL and hosted on this repository.
  • Must maintain the same user interface as our official install/upgrade scripts (eg. shell script echo's and 'read' statements must match the same wording to ensure that the installation experience across all OSes and distributions give the same user experience.)

If you have any queries regarding the above rules please feel free to contact us at: info@sentora.org.
