Altova StyleVision Server 2024

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


cp /opt/Altova/StyleVisionServer2024/etc/*.tool /opt/Altova/FlowForceServer2024/tools


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


Uninstall StyleVision Server

Before you install StyleVision 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 StyleVision Server:


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

[CentOS, RedHat]:   sudo rpm -e stylevisionserver


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


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