Altova StyleVision Server 2024

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


Integration with FlowForce

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

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

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

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


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


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

[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


Download the StyleVision Server Linux package

StyleVision Server installation packages for the following Linux systems are available at 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 in order to run StyleVision Server, you may want to download LicenseServer from the Altova website at the same time as you download StyleVision Server, rather than download it at a later time.


Install StyleVision Server

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

cd /home/User/MyAltova


Install StyleVision Server with the following command:

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

[Ubuntu]:   sudo dpkg --install stylevisionserver-2024-ubuntu.deb

[CentOS]:   sudo rpm -ivh stylevisionserver-2024-1.x86_64.rpm

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


Note:You may need to adjust the name of the package above to match the current release or service pack version.
