Sv translation


Available Memory

BlueMind's default configuration requires at least 6Gb.


The en_US.UTF-8 must be installed and generated (even if the system is configured to use another locale).

To check that it is installed correctly, use the following command line:

Code Block
$ locale -a|grep en_US

If no locale is not installed, you can generate it with the following command:

Code Block
# local-gen en_US.utf8

Linux distribution


BlueMind requires a blank, dedicated server or virtual machine.


BlueMind doesn't support LXC technology, you should user use KVM instead.

BlueMind requires a 64-bit version of supported distributions (for Ubuntu, make sure you have the Server version):

  • Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Server (Trusty Tahr)
  • Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Server (Xenial Xerus)
  • Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Server (Bionic Beaver)*
  • RedHat 6
  • RedHat 7
  • Debian 7 Wheezy

    Pour continuer à profiter des mises à jour BlueMind dans cette distribution il faut mettre à jour les adresses des dépôts dans le fichier
    titleDebian 7 Wheezy n'est plus supportée par Debian
    is no longer supported by Debian

    To continue being able to use BlueMind updates in this distribution, you must update repository addresses in the file /etc/apt/sources.list pour :

    Code Block
    deb wheezy main
    deb wheezy-backports main
  • Debian 8 Jessie
  • Debian 9 Stretch

*available in for BlueMind 3.5.9 and higherabove

titleRepository signature

Repositories are now signed for all supported Ubuntu/Debian distribution – this is a requisite for Ubuntu 18.04 and Debian 9.

You may, if you need or want to, manually import the key on all our supported distributions using the following command:

Code Block
curl | apt-key add -

Otherwise, a warning may come up during earlier version updates. Note that this will not disrupt updates.

Network & DNS

IP address

The server must have a static IP, system defined or supplied by a DHCP server.


The BlueMind server hostname must be configured correctly, and the server name must be resolvable by name from another machine.

Specifically, BlueMind expects the following results to the hostname command:

Code Block
$ hostname

  must return the short system name, e.g. here: in this example mail 

Code Block
$ hostname -f

 must return the fully qualified system name (FQDN), e.g. here: in this example

The hostname also has to be properly set in the server's /etc/hosts file:

Code Block

Network cards

If your server has several network cards, the first one (eth0) must bear the BlueMind server's external IP address.


The guidelines below are not required but recommended to make your server's maintenance more straightforward.
