Server administration

Server start

Once your database has been properly configured and your config profile is set to use that database, you are ready to start your server using the omero admin start command:

$ bin/omero admin start


omero admin start and omero admin restart provide a useful debugging and maintenance option called --foreground. Using this option allows for starting the server up in the foreground, that is without creating a daemon on UNIX-like systems or service on Windows. During the lifetime of the server, the prompt from which it was launched will be blocked.
