Attention! The information on this page is left inside the documentation for historic reasons. GraphDB is not used for active development anymore.
Inside the Knora git repository, there is a folder called
/triplestores/graphdb-se containing the latest supported version of
the GraphDB-SE distribution archive.
graphdb-se-x.x.x-dist.zip to a place of your choosing and run
$ cd /to/unziped/location $ ./bin/graphdb -Dgraphdb.license.file=/path/to/GRAPHDB_SE.license
Running inside Docker
To be able to successfully run GraphDB inside docker two important steps need to be done beforhand:
- Install Docker from http://docker.com.
- Copy the GraphDB-SE license file into a folder of you choosing and
GRAPHDB_SE.license. We will mount this folder into the docker container, so that the license can be used by GraphDB running inside the container.
$ docker run --rm -it -v /path/to/license/folder:/external -p 7200:7200 daschswiss/graphdb
--rmremoves the container as soon as you stop it
-pforwards the exposed port to your host (or if you use boot2docker to this IP)
-itallows interactive mode, so you see if something gets deployed
After the GraphDB inside the docker container has started, you can find the GraphDB workbench here: http://localhost:7200
Above, we create and start a transient container (
--rm flag). To
create a container that we can stop and start again at a later time,
follow the following steps:
$ docker run --name graphdb -d -t -v /path/to/license/folder:/external -p 7200:7200 daschswiss/graphdb (to see the console output, attach to the container; to detach press Ctrl-c) $ docker attach graphdb (to stop the container) $ docker stop graphdb (to start the container again) $ docker start graphdb (to remove the container; needs to be stopped) $ docker rm graphdb
--namegive the container a name
-drun container in background and print container ID
-tallocate a pseudo TTY, so you see the console output
-pforwards the exposed port to your host
You can run GraphDB Free locally as described for GraphDB SE above, or you can use Knora's pre-built GraphDB Free Docker image:
$ docker run --rm -p 7200:7200 daschswiss/graphdb-free
