Installation of FileCloud on Linux Using the Repository

  • Beginning in FileCloud 23.1, Linux installation and upgrades moved to a new repository system.
    The OS’s we currently support are:
    Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
    RHEL 9.x

    Note: FIPS 140-3 modules are still in review for Ubuntu 22.04 and RHEL 9.
    If you want to install FileCloud with FIPS, please wait until the OS vendors officially announce they are supporting FIPS.

    RHEL information

If the Linux server is not in a isolated environment where regular users are prevented from using SSH login, we recommend enabling authentication for the MongoDB service to prevent unauthorized access through port forwarding.

MongoDB 5.0 or above requires use of the AVX instruction set, which is available on select Intel and AMD processors.
If your CPU doesn't have the AVX instruction set, MongoDB 6 will not run. 

To check whether your CPU has the instruction set, run:

#lscpu | grep -i avx"
