The goal of this blog is to show you the technical side of Intrexx. This means it isn’t important what Webserver or Database I use, because you can switch them afterwards to whatever you want to use. Here I want to show you the setup I use to build my examples.
Oracle VirtualBox 5.1.18
Ubuntu Mate 16.04 LTS 64-Bit
4 GB RAM (recommended 8GB and more)
32 GB HDD/SSD
Intrexx 8 Minimal Setup (always current Online Update status)
Tomcat (the one delivered with the Intrexx package)
Text Editor: Nano
In order to install Intrexx, I used United Planets Technical Documentation on How to install Intrexx on Linux, which worked out pretty well.
Creating the Portal
The creation of the portal is very intuitive and is basically done with the assistant. However, after successfully creating a portal it was necessary for me to install the portal-service as a daemon manually. In my environment I was able to do this executing these commands:
sudo ./upixp_xxtend install
After that I started the service and finally was able to edit the portal using the portal-manager.
sudo system upixp_xxtend start
