- Start server by clicking over start-server.bat (for windows) or start-server.sh (for linux or mac)
- Start POS client - run floreantpos.bat or floreantpos.sh . First time you may need to check server connectivity. Default Password for Database is app/sa and admin user/pass for client are 123/123. After first login change password from back-office.
Installation in Linux
it runs exactly in the same way as windows. but get sure default Java in Linux is Sun Java. Some Linux distribution including latest version of Ubuntu ships with Java alternative. So, if you see trouble reinstall Java with Sun latest JRE or JDK. To get JRE in ubuntu you can follow instructions here
For ubuntu 9.10 we use
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-bin
When installation is complete remember to set path for Java or directly run Java from Sun JRE as follows
/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/bin/java -jar floreantpos.jar
