Altova FlowForce Server 2024 Advanced Edition

FlowForce Server is available for installation on Linux systems. Its installation and setup procedure is described below. Perform installation either as the root user or as a user with sudo privileges.


Uninstall FlowForce Server

If you need to uninstall a previous version of FlowForce Server, do this as follows. In the Linux command line interface (CLI), you can check which Altova server products are installed with the following commands:


[Debian, Ubuntu]:   dpkg --list | grep Altova

[CentOS, RedHat]:   rpm -qa | grep flowforce


If FlowForce Server is not installed, go ahead with the installation as documented below in Install FlowForce Server.


If you need to uninstall an old version of FlowForce Server, do this with the following commands:


[Debian, Ubuntu]:   sudo dpkg --remove flowforceserveradv

[CentOS, RedHat]:   sudo rpm -e flowforceserveradv


On Debian and Ubuntu systems, it might happen that FlowForce Server still appears in the list of installed products after it has been uninstalled. In this case, run the purge command to clear FlowForce Server from the list. You can also use the purge command instead of the remove command listed above.


[Debian, Ubuntu]:   sudo dpkg --purge flowforceserveradv


Download the FlowForce Server Linux package

FlowForce Server installation packages for the following Linux systems are available on the Altova website.



Package extension










After downloading the Linux package, copy it to any directory on the Linux system. Since you will need an Altova LicenseServer to run FlowForce Server, you may want to download LicenseServer from the Altova website at the same time as you download FlowForce Server.


Install FlowForce Server

In a terminal window, switch to the directory where you copied the Linux package. For example, if you copied it to a user directory called MyAltova that is located in the /home/User directory, switch to this directory as follows:


cd /home/User/MyAltova


Install FlowForce Server using the relevant command:


[Debian]:   sudo dpkg --install flowforceserveradv-2024-debian.deb

[RedHat]:   sudo rpm -ivh flowforceserveradv-2024-1.x86_64.rpm
