Altova FlowForce Server 2024 Advanced Edition

This section describes the installation and licensing of FlowForce Server on macOS systems. The setup of FlowForce Server comprises the following procedures:


1.Installing FlowForce Server

2.Installing LicenseServer

3.Starting LicenseServer

4.Registering FlowForce Server with LicenseServer

5.Assigning a license to FlowForce Server

6.Configuring a server instance via the FlowForce Server Setup page or configuraiton files


In order for FlowForce Server to work, it must be registered and licensed with an Altova LicenseServer on your local machine or on another machine on your network. If LicenseServer is already installed and running on your network, you can skip Steps 2 and 3 and proceed with licensing and instance configuration.


Note that you can postpone registration and assigning a license and carry out these tasks within the framework of or after the configuration of FlowForce Server. However, it is mandatory to register FlowForce Server first, and only then will you be able to assign a license to FlowForce Server. Note that assigning a license to FlowForce Server does not require that FlowForce Server be running; only LicenseServer must be running.


System Requirements (macOS)

Note the following system requirement:


macOS 12 or newer



Note the following prerequisites:


Perform installation as the root user or as a user with sudo privileges.

The previous version of FlowForce Server must be uninstalled before a new one is installed.

If you are installing FlowForce Server with other Altova server products, it is recommended to install FlowForce Server first to preserve the correct associations of FlowForce Server with other Altova server products.

The macOS machine must be configured so that its name resolves to an IP address. This means that you must be able to successfully ping the host name from the Terminal using the command ping <hostname>.
