Linux build procedure and package guide

A 5 digit passcode is generated by the install script. It can be found in the preference file, which is generally located at /usr/local/etc/istatserver/istatserver.conf. iStat View for iOS and iStat View for Mac will ask for this passcode the first time you connect to your computer.


Upgrading iStat Server #

Upgrades follow the same process as standard installs. Please stop istatserver if it is running then run the normal build process.


Starting iStat Server at boot #

iStat Server does not install any scripts to start itself at boot. Sample scripts for rc.d, upstart and systemd are included in the resources directory. You may need to customize them depending on your OS.
