Using JasperReports 

 

Once logged in, you will need to start the services by running the following script:

 

cd /opt/jasperreports-server-cp-7.5.0

sudo ./ctlscript.sh start

 

jasperreports start services

 

If you would like JasperReports to autostart when you reboot, you will need to install the JasperReports server database and application server as services.  To do this there is a script to configure this within the following location:

 

/opt/jasperreports-server-cp-7.5.0/scripts/linux/jasperserver

 

Edit the script and set permissions as described in the readme file in the same directory

 

Logging in

 

Once the services are running you can login on the following URL:

 

http://hostname:8080/jasperserver

 

User: jasperadmin
Pass: jasperadmin

 

Or you can login using the IP Address instead of hostname
