Starting and stopping the Engine🔗

Linux🔗

The Engine is installed as a systemd service called va-engine. To start and stop:

systemctl start --user va-engine
systemctl stop --user va-engine

The service will be installed to the user scope by default. It will be stopped when you log out. To prevent this (replace “username” with your user name):

sudo loginctl enable-linger "username"

Alternatively, the service can be installed to system scope. In this case the commands to start and stop the Engine are:

sudo systemctl start va-engine
sudo systemctl stop va-engine

Docker🔗

This assumes you have Docker installed. If not, the instructions are here. To start the engine:

docker run -p 2015:2015 visionappster/va-engine

To stop, press Ctrl+C.

The list of officially supported Docker images can be found at Docker Hub.

Windows🔗

  1. Open the start menu and type “services”. Click on the Services application.

  2. Find the application named “VisionAppster Application Engine” in the list and right-click it.

  3. In the menu that pops up, you can find the commands to Start, Stop and Restart the service.
