Aurora Corporate documentation

Installing on Debian / Ubuntu Linux with Nginx

Aurora Corporate can be automatically installed and configured on Ubuntu Linux, Debian Linux or any compatible Linux distribution.

It was tested on: Ubuntu 20.04, Ubuntu 22.04, Debian 10 - 12. It should also work on Linux Mint as well as other compatible flavors of Linux, as long as those provide the following dependencies: Nginx, PHP 7.4 or newer, MySQL 5.7.8 or newer / MariaDB 10.2.7 or newer, with mysqlnd driver.

In case if any components are not detected on the system, they will be automatically deployed from OS repository as dependencies.

Unlike the Apache package, this one provides an installer with command-line interface. You'll be able to select a product, install, upgrade or remove the installation with simple commands.

Configuring repository access

To have the product installed, edit /etc/apt/sources.list file and add the following line to it:

deb /

All the commands mentioned below must be run with superuser privileges. If you’re logged in as regular user, use su command on Debian or sudo su on Ubuntu to get full privileges. In case of Ubuntu, you can add sudo in front of a single command to get superuser privileges temporarily.

Install public key of our repository using the following commands:


curl -s | sudo gpg --no-default-keyring --keyring gnupg-ring:/etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/afterlogic.gpg --import
chmod 644 /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/afterlogic.gpg


apt install gpg
curl -s | gpg --no-default-keyring --keyring gnupg-ring:/etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/afterlogic.gpg --import
chmod 644 /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/afterlogic.gpg

Alternately, you can use a single legacy command (deprecated in newer Debian/Ubuntu releases):

wget -qO - | apt-key add -

Update APT cache with:

apt update

Installing the package

To install the product package, run the following command:

apt install afterlogic-nginx

This will deploy the installer. Now start the installation with:

afterlogic-nginx aurora

Once Aurora Corporate is installed, it can be accessed at http://ServerIP/afterlogic/ address. Nginx configuration file is automatically placed under /etc/nginx/sites-available/afterlogic.conf, feel free to reconfigure web server to offer access via domain or subdomain. The product itself resides under /usr/share/afterlogic directory.

To configure the installation, you can log into /adminpanel/ as superadmin user, default password is empty.

Upgrading the product installation

Run the following command:

afterlogic-nginx upgrade

The installer will check if new version is available - and if it is, it will be downloaded and installed, preserving the product configuration.

Uninstalling the product

To uninstall the product completely, run the following command:

afterlogic-nginx remove

Note that removing the installer package will not delete the product installation itself, just the installer will be removed. After removing the product, you can remove the installer with:

apt purge afterlogic-nginx
