Starting a server manually

NOTE: the information on this page pertains to AllegroGraph version 3.x. There is no corresponding 4.x page at this time.

The full set of command line options for starting the AllegroGraph server are described here.

Some of the Learning Center examples require a server running with non-default options. The following examples start the AllegroGraph server listening on (a non-default) port 4126 and using the specified file for eval-in-server permissions.

On Mac OS X and other Unix Platforms

To start an AllegroGraphServer running as a daemon:

$ cd [AllegroGraphInstallation]
$ ./AllegroGraphServer --port 4126 --eval-in-server-file evalinserver.cfg

The default behavior (without the --debug command line argument) is to run in the background, as a daemon. In this case, it is recommended that you use the --log-file command line argument to specify a log file for the various messages printed by the server.

For Linux installs, the server can also be started with this command:

$ /etc/rc.d/init.d/agraph start

On Windows

To start an AllegroGraphServer in console mode, specify options at the command line:

% cd [AllegroGraphInstallation]
% .\AllegroGraphServer.exe --port 4126 --eval-in-server-file evalinserver.cfg

To start AllegroGraphServer running as a service:

% cd [AllegroGraphInstallation]
% .\AllegroGraphServer.exe --service-start

The file agraph.cfg in this directory specifies the startup options for the service. Edit the configuration in this file to specify non-default port, eval-in-server-file, or other options.

On Windows, the AllegroGraph Server is installed as a service during installation and is started by default. The Services control panel applet can also be used to start/stop/restart the service.
