All Linux assets, packages, and binaries require a support contract for access. Contact for more information. For free up-to-date binaries, check out the latest releases at The Linux Foundation Janssen Project, the new upstream open source project.

SUSE Installation#


Single-node Gluu Server Linux package are available for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15. Follow the instructions below:

  1. Install the Linux package
  2. Start the Server and log in to the container
  3. Run the setup script
  4. Sign in via browser
  5. Disable Gluu repositories


To upgrade an existing Gluu Server installation, follow the upgrade guide.


  • Make sure the target server or VM meets all minimum requirements specified in the VM Preparation Guide.

  • SELinux must be set to permissive in /etc/selinux/config


Install the package#

The Gluu Server will be installed under /opt. File size and minimum requirements remain the same as the host.

For SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15, run the following commands to install:

wget --user="your-username" --password="your-password" -O RPM-GPG-KEY-GLUU
rpm --import RPM-GPG-KEY-GLUU
zypper addrepo Gluu-repo
zypper refresh
zypper install gluu-server-nochroot

After installation, the gluu-server-nochroot package needs to be excluded from automatic updates with the following command.

zypper addlock gluu-server-nochroot

Start the server and log in#

The Gluu Server must be started to proceed.

Run the following commands:

gluu-serverd start

Run the setup script#

Configuration is completed by running the setup script. This generates certificates, salt values, and renders configuration files. Run the script with the following commands:

cd /install/community-edition-setup

See the Setup Script Documentation for more detail on setup script options.

Sign in via browser#

Wait about 10 minutes in total for the server to restart and finalize its configuration. After that period, sign in via a web browser. The username will be admin and your password will be the ldap_password you provided during installation.


If the Gluu Server login page does not appear, confirm that port 443 is open in the VM. If it is not open, open port 443 and try to reach the host in the browser again.

Disable Gluu Repositories#

To prevent involuntary overwrites of the currently deployed instance (in case a newer version of the same package is found during regular OS updates), disable the previously added Gluu repositories after initial installation.

zypper mr -d Gluu-repo


The Gluu Server does not support package updates/upgrades via Linux package management (i.e. using commands like # yum update or # apt-get update). For upgrade instructions, see the upgrade docs.


Sometimes things go wrong! It can be difficult to troubleshoot issues if the steps to reproduce the issue are not clearly documented. This is why we always recommend creating backups of your Gluu Server.


Run the following commands:

gluu-serverd stop
zypper remove gluu-server-nochroot
rm -rf /opt/dist /opt/gluu /install /ect/certs/
