VMplayer

The fastest way to run Recurrant on your own PC is to download our vmplayer image from the download section. Follow these few steps:

  1. Make sure you are running vmplayer properly
  2. Download vmplayer image from Redcurrant Download page
  3. Explode the archive
  4. Start a VM with Redcurrant vmdk

You should see Redcurrant starting. Default login/password is enclosed in the archive.
Redcurrant services are bound on loopback interface (127.0.0.1). You can test Redcurrant with command lines

Vagrant

The fastest way to discover Redcurrant installation is to use Vagrant. Vagrant is a very convenient tool to generate customized VM (with VirtualBox).
Redcurrant sources provide Vagrant configuration files and a dedicated provisioning script. This all-in-one installation will provide a namespace with the minimum directory and storage services to start with. Then you'll be able to use Redcurrant with CLI.

Follow these few steps:

  1. Make sure you are running vagrant properly
  2. Download vagrant files from Redcurrant Download page.
  3. Explode the archive in your vagrant folder
  4. Customize redc_installer.sh with your proxy settings if any
  5. start with
vagrant up

You should see the VM starting with GUI activated. Then package download starts and Redcurrant auto configuration happens. Vagrant automagically installs your ssh key.
Redcurrant services are bound on loopback interface (127.0.0.1). You can test Redcurrant with command lines

Custom all-in-one install

This is the next step in Redcurrant knowledge. Follow the installation guide found in the documentation section in order to install your own Redcurrant with the desired number of services. It is advised to use a CentOS 6.x image as a basis. Other OS should work but paths may differ.
