Installing R on the server

Good day

colleagues I would like to ask you rather ask for a small explanation of how to install the R extension on a server without GUI graphical environment I understand that I can do it through the following command (sudo -u knime /opt/knime/knime_server./knime -application org.eclipse.equinox.p2. director -nosplash -consolelog -r,https://update, -i -d /opt/knime/knime_server) but I would like to know if any configuration also goes in the preference.epf I appreciate any guidance you can give me.


Hi @lizardovanegas ,

You will need to point your .epf file to the R installation on your server. The easiest way to get the template for what things need to be added to the .epf file is to use KNIME AP.

  1. Configure your KNIME AP to connect to the R instance on your local system.
  2. Go to File → export preferences → save the file somewhere
  3. Open the file you saved, and inspect the lines for the references of R, and copy those lines to your .epf file on the server
  4. Edit the lines you copied over to your .epf file in your client-profiles folder, and make sure they point to your installation on the server, and not to the locations on KNIME AP.
