  1. Uncompress the downloaded file into a directory named the directory of your choice. We'll refer to it as $SONARQUBE_RUNNER_HOME in the next steps.
  2. Update the global settings (database connection, server URL) by editing the $SONARQUBE_RUNNER_HOME/conf/ file:

    Code Block
    #----- Default SonarQube server
    #----- PostgreSQL
    #----- MySQL
    #----- Oracle
    #----- Oracle
    #----- Microsoft SQLServer
    #----- Global database settings



  3. Create a new SONAR_RUNNER_HOME environment variable set to $SONARQUBE_RUNNER_HOME.
  4. Add the $SONAR_RUNNER_HOME/bin directory to your path.
  5. You can check the basic installation by opening a new shell and executing the command sonar-runner -h (on Windows platform the command is sonar-runner.bat -h) . You should get a message like this:

    Code Block
    usage: sonar-runner [options]
     -h,--help             Display help information
     -X,--debug            Produce execution debug output
     -D,--define <arg>     Define property
