    Advanced installation of GoCD server using zip installer

    If you want to run GoCD on a platform which does not have a native installer or want to run GoCD without installing it, you could do so by using the zip installers.

    • Download the zip installer for GoCD server
    • Unzip the installer in a folder of your choice. It creates a subfolder with the name go-server-${version}
    • Ensure that java executable is available on the PATH environment variable. If you have multiple versions of java, or want to use a version of java that is not available on PATH environment variable, edit the file wrapper-config/wrapper-properties.conf and change the variable to point to the java executable.

    Managing the GoCD server process

    The GoCD server script must be run with one of the following arguments:

    Script Description
    ./bin/go-server console The GoCD server will be started in the foreground
    ./bin/go-server start The GoCD server will be started as a daemon in the background
    ./bin/go-server stop The GoCD server will be stopped

    Once the GoCD server is started the GoCD server will be started and it will print out the URL for the Dashboard page. This will be http://localhost:8153/go
