INSTALLATION guide

The installation is easy. Even if you are a newbie in Linux there is not much room for errors. However, a basic knowledge in email routing and traffic is required.

Estimated time: 30 minutes.

A simpler alternative to this article for Windows admins is to use the customized ISO image


Watch a video on how to install using ISO image

    Important:
      Make sure you provide valid network settings in order to connect to the Internet during installation. 

      Do not attempt to install on an existing system. You cannot have multiple postfix, spamassassin, clamav instances.
      Deploy Scrollout F1 on a fresh Debian system.

    1. Download Debian Server

    A clean Debian operating system must be installed. Do not use an existing system on which you have installed other applications and services like an existing web server and email server. The installation process will overwrite the existing settings.

    Download a version of Debian.

    2. Install Debian Server


    Important note: When you are asked to configure network connection please make sure you input the correct settings. You need a working Internet connection during installation.

    3. Install Scrollout F1

    Login to the terminal console using your user (root) and password.
    Again, make sure your internet connection is working properly and type the following commands:

    apt-get install sudo -y
    sudo –i
    cd /tmp
    wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/scrollout/files/update/scrolloutf1.tar/download -O scrolloutf1.tar
    tar -xvf scrolloutf1.tar
    chmod 755 /tmp/scrolloutf1/www/bin/*
    /tmp/scrolloutf1/www/bin/install.sh

    Press-hit ENTER every time you are asked to answer a question. By doing this you will select the default answer.
