Verify Installation

To start the MigratoryData server, open a console/terminal, change to the directory where the MigratoryData package has been extracted, and run one of the following commands:

For Windows:

start-migratorydata.bat

For Linux or MacOS:

./start-migratorydata.sh

Test Installation

To test the installation, start a web browser on the machine where the MigratoryData server has been installed and open the following URL:

http://localhost:8800

This will open the home page of the MigratoryData server which contains docs and demos.

If a browser is not available on the machine on which the MigratoryData server has been installed, then, supposing the address of the machine is push.example.com and the port 8800 is not blocked by the firewall, you can remotely test the installation by opening the following URL from a remote machine: http://push.example.com:8800

Build Realtime Apps

The next step is to build realtime apps using your preferred programming languages to communicate with your MigratoryData server. Please refer to the MigratoryData Client SDKs section.
