Altova RaptorXML Server 2024

RaptorXML Server is available for installation on Linux systems. Do the installation either as root user or a user with sudo privileges.


Integration of FlowForce Server and other Altova server products

If you are installing RaptorXML Server together with FlowForce Server, it is recommended that you install FlowForce Server first. If you install RaptorXML Server before FlowForce Server, then, after having installed both RaptorXML Server and FlowForce Server, run the following command:


cp /opt/Altova/RaptorXMLServer2024/etc/*.tool /opt/Altova/FlowForceServer2024/tools


This command copies the .tool file from /etc directory of RaptorXML Server to the FlowForce Server /tools directory. The .tool file is required by FlowForce Server. It contains the path to the RaptorXML Server executable. You do not need to run this command if you install FlowForce Server before installing RaptorXML Server.


Uninstall RaptorXML Server

Before you install RaptorXML Server, you should uninstall any older version.


To check which Altova server products are installed:


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

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


To uninstall an old version of RaptorXML Server:


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

[CentOS, RedHat]:   sudo rpm -e raptorxmlserver


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


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


Download the RaptorXML Server Linux package

RaptorXML Server installation packages for the following Linux systems are available at the Altova website.

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