The easiest way to setup Polypheny-DB is to use Polypheny Control.
To build and start Polypheny-DB using Polypheny Control you need to have Java JDK in Version 8 or higher installed on your system. Thanks to JGit, Polypheny Control contains a pure Java implementation of Git. Therefore, it is no longer required to have Git installed on the system.
Download the latest polypheny-control.jar from the release section. To start the Web-UI execute
polypheny-control.jar by specifying the parameter
java -jar polypheny-control.jar control
The interface can now be accessed on port
8070. This port can be changed by specifying another port using the parameter
java -jar polypheny-control.jar control -p 8070
We strongly recommend not to use port
8082 because these are the default ports of services offered by Polypheny-DB.
Polypheny-DB stores files in the local file system. By default, this is done in a special folder called
.polypheny in the home directory of the executing user. This location can be customized by setting a system environment variable called
POLYPHENY_HOME pointing to the desired location before Polypheny-DB is started.
(Optional) Setup Docker
See this on how to setup Docker to use the built-in Docker-based data store deployment.
