Installing Kaspersky Security Center 11 Web Console on Linux platforms

This section describes features applicable only to Kaspersky Security Center 11.1 Web Console or a later version.

This section describes how to install Kaspersky Security Center 11 Web Console Server (also referred to as Kaspersky Security Center 11 Web Console) on devices running the Linux operating system. Before installation, you must install a database management system and the Kaspersky Security Center 11 Administration Server.

Use the installation file—ksc-web-console-[version_number].deb or ksc-web-console-[version_number].x86_64.rpm—that corresponds to the Linux distribution installed on your device. You receive the installation file by downloading it from the Kaspersky Lab website.

To install Kaspersky Security Center 11 Web Console:

  1. Make sure that the device on which you want to install Kaspersky Security Center 11 Web Console is running one of the supported Linux distributions.
  2. Read the End User License Agreement (EULA) that you downloaded together with the installation file. If you do not accept the terms of the License Agreement, do not install the application.
  3. Create a response file that contains parameters for connecting Kaspersky Security Center 11 Web Console to the Administration Server. Name this file ksc-web-console-setup.json and place it in the following directory: /etc/ksc-web-console-setup.json.

    Example of a response file containing the minimal set of parameters and the default address and port:

    {

    "address": "127.0.0.1",

    "port": 8080,

    "trusted": "",

    "acceptEula": true

    }

    Kaspersky Security Center 11 Web Console cannot be updated by using the same .rpm installation file. If you want to change settings in a response file and use this file to reinstall the application, you must first remove the application, and then install it again with the new response file.

  4. Under an account with root privileges, use the command line to run the setup file with the .deb or .rpm extension, depending on your Linux distribution.
    • To install Kaspersky Security Center 11 Web Console from a .deb file, run the following command:

      $ sudo dpkg -i ksc-web-console-[version_number].deb

    • To install Kaspersky Security Center 11 Web Console from an .rpm file, run one of the following commands:

      $ sudo rpm -ivh --nodeps ksc-web-console-[version_number].x86_64.rpm

      or

      $ sudo alien -i ksc-web-console-[version_number].x86_64.rpm

    This starts unpacking the setup file. Please wait until the installation is complete. Kaspersky Security Center 11 Web Console is installed to the following directory: /var/opt/kaspersky/ksc-web-console.

When the installation is complete, you can use your browser to open and log in to Kaspersky Security Center 11 Web Console.
