I am interested in standing up my own server with IndexTank installed on it.  I know nothing about setting it up and I am not experienced at all at Java.  But I know how to sudo into my server and run commands.  Can anyone walk me through the process of setting up IndexTank Engine and Services.

When LinkedIn acquired IndexTank they made it opensource.

Thanks.

Well I solved it incase any one wants to see my setup instructions for using Dreamhost VPS:

setup new server.
Add user with Shell access (I reference that user as {usernamegoeshere} in this document)
Download Maven from:
http://maven.apache.org/download.cgi
apache-maven-3.0.4-bin.tar.gz

Created subfolder 'apache-maven' within the {usernamegoeshere} folder
upload apache-maven-3.0.4-bin.tar.gz file into apache-maven folder

(help can be found at http://maven.apache.org/guides/getting-started/maven-in-five-minutes.html)

run from shell
$ tar -zxvf apache-maven-3.0.4-bin.tar.gz
after it has been extracted then run the following 5 commands
$ export M2_HOME=/home/{usernamegoeshere}/apache-maven/apache-maven-3.0.4
$ export M2=$M2_HOME/bin
$ export MAVEN_OPTS="-Xms256m -Xmx512m"
$ export PATH=$M2:$PATH
$ export JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/dh/java  [specific for Dreamhost]
(help can be found here:
http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Java)


You can run a test to verify it has been installed
$ mvn --version

Now pull the repository for indextank
The following steps are from https://github.com/linkedin/indextank-engine
$ git clone git://github.com/linkedin/indextank-engine.git

it will create a subdirectory called indextank-engine
$ cd indextank-engine


Now create the pacakge:
$ mvn compile package assembly:single
install eclips
$ mvn eclipse:eclipse
These may take a while because it has to download alot of stuff

After running the package generation:

$ nohup java -cp target/indextank-engine-1.0.0-jar-with-dependencies.jar com.flaptor.indextank.api.Launcher

(The use of nohup is if you are using a shell window to keep the service for stopping when you hangup/exit the shell)

Now go test in a browser with
