    What version of linux is your server? Redhat 7.3 and redhat 8 are the only supported versions I believe, but some folks have gotten it running on others. I know folks have had trouble with Redhat 9 and Enterprise.

    If you have a supported version you should be able to just run the install script.

    How familiar are you with using linux? The installer is simply a shell script, which you can run using './install'. I believe it asks you some questions about where you want to put it and what not.

    If you have an unsupported version of linux, you can try installing with this command:
    '/installFCS -platformWarnOnly' which will skip the OS checks in the script and run the installer. Whether or not it works after installing is up in the air, and depends on what version of linux you have.

    If the above all sounds foreign to you, send me a pm here on flashkit and I'll try to help out where I can.
