Installation or Setup

Sonarqube uses database for storing its results and analysis. You can install MySQL for example and run it using mysql -u root -p and then run the following queries to set up the database tables.

CREATE DATABASE sonar CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;
CREATE USER 'sonar' IDENTIFIED BY 'sonar';
GRANT ALL ON sonar.* TO 'sonar'@'%' IDENTIFIED BY 'sonar';
GRANT ALL ON sonar.* TO 'sonar'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'sonar';
FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
 

then you need to download the sonarqube from their website, for example you can use wget to do it as shown below. Choose the appropriate sonarqube version required.

wget https://sonarsource.bintray.com/Distribution/sonarqube/sonarqube-5.6.zip

unzip sonarqube-5.6.zip
mv sonarqube-5.6 /opt/sonar
 

Open /opt/sonar/conf/sonar.properties with vim editor, and modify it as shown below.

sonar.jdbc.username=sonar
sonar.jdbc.password=sonar

sonar.jdbc.url=jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/sonar?useUnicode=true&characterEncoding=utf8&rewriteBatchedStatements=true&useConfigs=maxPerformance
 

these setup the database and the user name, password for that. To setup server on port 9000 add the below configurations

sonar.web.host=127.0.0.1
sonar.web.context=/sonar
sonar.web.port=9000
 

this sets up all the required configurations. now you can start the service using this command sudo /opt/sonar/bin/linux-x86-64/sonar.sh start . replace the start keyword with stop to shutdown the server.

for more information and configurations you can visit - http://docs.sonarqube.org/display/SONAR/Installing+the+Server
