The SonarQube platform is made of 3 components:
Several database engines are supported.
Create an empty schema and a sonarqube user. Grant this sonarqube user permissions to create, update and delete objects for this schema. The charset of the database has to be set to "UTF-8" and the language to "English". Here is a sample script for MySQL.
There are two well-known engines that can be used in MySQL: MyISAM and InnoDB. MyISAM is the oldest of the two engines and is being progressively replaced by InnoDB. InnoDB is clearly faster and scales better with SonarQube when the number of projects under quality control increases. If you have been an early adopter of SonarQube, you probably have a series of table that are still using MyISAM. To improve performances, you should change the engine for all tables to InnoDB.
Once all SonarQube tables are using the InnoDB engine, the first thing to do is allocate a maximum amount of RAM to your MySQL instance with the
First, check the requirements.
Then download and unzip the distribution (do not unzip into a directory starting with a digit). Note that native packages are also available for Linux distributions.
<install_directory> (below) refers to the path to the directory where the SonarQube distribution has been unzipped.
Edit <install_directory>/conf/sonar.properties to configure the database settings. Templates are available for every supported database. Just uncomment and configure the template you need and comment out the lines dedicated to H2:
sonar.jdbc.username=sonarqube sonar.jdbc.password=mypassword sonar.jdbc.url=jdbc:postgresql://localhost/sonarqube
Drivers for the supported databases (except Oracle) are already provided. Do not replace the provided drivers; they are the only ones supported.
For Oracle, copy the JDBC driver into <install_directory>/extensions/jdbc-driver/oracle.
The default port is "9000" and the context path is "/". Parameters can be changed in <install_directory>/conf/sonar.properties:
sonar.web.host=192.0.0.1 sonar.web.port=80 sonar.web.context=/sonar
Execute the following script to start the server:
You can now browse SonarQube at http://localhost:9000.
By default, SonarQube is configured to run on any computer with a simple Java JRE. The first thing to do when installing a production instance is to use a Java JDK and activate the server mode by uncommenting the following line in <install_directory>/conf/wrapper.conf:
To change the Java JVM used by SonarQube, simply edit <install_directory>/conf/wrapper.conf and update the following line:
Multiple analysis clients are available:
