The Bayesian Data-Analysis toolbox is a client/server software system. This installation procedure will walk you through the process of setting up a server machine. The server machine contains all of the software needed to run the various analyse and once installed your server machine is an independent standalone installation that does not communicate with Washington university, except when you download or check for updates.
There are several requirements for running this software:
Downloading and installation the software:
This Java application will display a window containing a set of configurable options. For a first time installation, it will be populated with the installations procedure's best guess at the optional values. When updating your software, it will be populated with the values previously used in the installation procedure. Fill in or modify these options as needed.
After completing the root commands, your server should be up and running and you should have a fully functional installation of the Bayesian Analysis software. You can check to see if the server is running by entering "http://your.server.net:8080" in a web browser, where "your.server.net" should be replaced by the name of your server, and 8080 should be replaced by the port number you used in the installation. This http request should bring up the default page for an apache server.
If you have more than one machine you wish to use as a server, repeat this installation procedure on each machine. When you run the client interface, the "Settings/Server Setup" window allows you to specify the server you want to use.
You should be able to run the client interface on any machine that has Java and JavaWS installed. We routinely run the interface on Sun Solaris, MacOS, CentOS and WindowsPCs. To run the interface, issue the command:
from a command prompt, where you must supply your server name and port number. Additionally, this command can be placed in a shortcut to facilitate starting the interface. Running this command should result in the interface being displayed on your client machine.
Finally, the Bayesian Analysis software does not have an update feature. That is to say, when we distribute new software, one simply reruns the installation procedure to install the updates. So, for example, if you installed the software but did not configure either Fortran or C compilers, then to change this you would simply rerun the installation procedure and select the appropriate compilers. When the installation is done, you system should then support compilers.
