Register a new account

Download, Install, Run (Windows version)

1  Download the software based on your OS and platforms from link: https://unimus.net/download.html


2  Run Installer or directly run portable version from Windows OS
For portable version, you simply launch it, and it runs. This means there is nothing to install, and Unimus will only run when you launch it yourself. Else, just run a installer to get it installed, which will start it once system booted it up. 


There might be some pre-requirements such as Java 
Unimus is written in Java, and requires a JRE (Java Runtime Environment) to run.
We support Java 8-11, and you can use Oracle, OpenJDK or Corretto JRE. Here is a download link: https://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp

4  Run Unimus Portable
To run Unimus in portable (standalone) mode, simply launch the Unimus.exe.

This will open Unimus in a command-line window.
As long as this window remains open, Unimus will stay running.

You can close Unimus simply by closing the command-line window (or use Ctrl+C).

5  Start using Unimus
Unimus will now run at http://localhost:8085, you can access it using your browser.
(substitute 'localhost' for the address of your Unimus server) 


Initial Configuration

Once you launched Unimus system from browser window using URL http://localhost:8085, you will be prompted a configuration deployment wizard. The Wizard is a simple step-by-step process and serves as a help system to set up a clean Unimus instance to a fully usable state.

Wizard:
1. Accept End-User License Agreement then Continue Setup
2. Configure username and password
3. Configurate your database connection. Here I amusing File (Hsql) for this lab.

4. Add credentials used in your network

5. Configure ports used in your network. Usually only need ssh port 22. 

6. Backup Schedule
7. Enter your license key
