The easiest way to get your hands on the software is to add the Copernica repository to the source list of your package manager. You can then use "apt-get" or "yum" to install MailerQ, and to get updates. If you do not want to use your package manager, you can download MailerQ manually. Check out our downloads page for a list of available files that can be manually installed.
We have two repositories, one for newer Ubuntu and Debian versions (Ubuntu 12.04 and up, and Debian version 8 and higher), and a repository for the older Debian 6 and Debian 7 versions.
|Ubuntu 12.04 and up||deb https://packages.copernica.com/debian stable main|
|Debian 8 and up||deb https://packages.copernica.com/debian stable main|
|Debian 6 and Debian 7||deb https://packages.copernica.com/debian legacy main|
You can enter the following instructions to add our repository to your software list, and to download and install MailerQ.
$ wget https://packages.copernica.com/copernica.key $ sudo apt-key add copernica.key $ rm copernica.key $ echo "deb https://packages.copernica.com/debian stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/copernica.list $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install mailerq
Watch out: if you're on Debian 6 or Debian 7, make sure you replace the word "stable" with "legacy"!
For Red Had based systems there are two repositories as well, one for the latest versions of these systems, and one for older releases.
|CentOS 7+, Red Hat 7+, Fedora 22+||https://packages.copernica.com/rpm/copernica.repo|
|CentOS 6, Red Hat 6, Fedora 21||https://packages.copernica.com/rpm-legacy/copernica.repo|
To install MailerQ on a new version of CentOS, Red Hat or Fedora, enter the following instructions in your shell:
sudo wget https://packages.copernica.com/rpm/copernica.repo -O /etc/yum.repos.d/copernica.repo sudo yum update sudo yum install mailerq
Of course, if you're on an older system (CentOS 7, Red Hat 6 or Fedora 21), you should modify the repository URL to contain "rpm-legacy" instead of "rpm".
Once you've added the MailerQ repository to the list of software sources, you can always get the latest stable version of MailerQ with the instructions "sudo apt-get install mailerq" for Debian/Ubuntu based systems or "sudo yum install mailerq" for Red Hat based systems. If you prefer an older version over the current stable one, or when you want to try the bleeding edge development version, you should append a version number.
sudo apt-get install mailerq-4.4 sudo apt-get install mailerq-dev
sudo yum install mailerq-4.4 sudo yum install mailerq-dev
The development version has a "-dev" postfix. This dev version is automatically recompiled every 24 hours and contains the latest fixes and changes. Although it is often not recommended to use it in production environments, it's a great way to keep an eye on MailerQ improvements.
Note that if you run a specific version of MailerQ, the location of the config file changes too. By default, MailerQ loads it configuration from "/etc/mailerq/config.txt", but if you install an explicit version the version number is included in the filename of the config file (for example "/etc/mailerq/config-4.4.txt" or "/etc/mailerq/config-dev.txt").
All repositories mentioned above contain MailerQ versions that are statically linked, which means that there are hardly any dependencies. However, due to licensing conditions, we are required to supply dynamically linked versions of MailerQ too. If you prefer using a dynamically linked version, add '-shared' to the package name.
sudo apt-get install mailerq-5.0-shared sudo apt-get install mailerq-dev-shared
sudo yum install mailerq-5.0-shared sudo yum install mailerq-dev-shared
April has been a busy and exciting month for MailerQ. Last week we attended the CSA Summit in Cologne where we held a workshop on the ...
