How to configure APT repository for Zevenet Community Edition


The goal of this article is to explain how to configure the public APT repository for installing or keeping updated your Zevenet Community Edition. For Enterprise Edition, please use the official channels or contact with our Team.

This procedure has been tested in Debian Jessie, base version used for Zevenet 4.

Setting UP Zevenet APT repository for Community Edition

1. Configure the APT public key

Enter in the command line of the load balancer, download and configure the APT public Key:

root@zevenetlb#> wget -O - | apt-key add -

2. Configure the official APT repository

Add the remote repository to the local APT configuration file.

root@zevenetlb#> vi  /etc/apt/sources.list

Add the following line to the current apt configuration.

deb jessie main

Save and Quit.

3. Update the local package list

root@zevenetlb#> apt-get update

4. Check if there is a new release

Check if there is a new Zevenet version or make a fresh install Zevenet Load Balancer upon your fresh Debian base.

root@zevenetlb#> apt-get install zevenet

Done, your Zevenet Community Edition is ready to go!!!!

Note: Zevenet load balancer uses some packages from Debian public repositories, please ensure that additional Debian repositories are configured.

root@zevenetlb#> cat /etc/apt/sources.list

deb jessie/updates main
deb-src jessie/updates main

# jessie-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb jessie-updates main
deb-src jessie-updates main

deb main contrib non-free
#official Zevenet repository
deb jessie main

Zevenet CE packages generation policy
