I’m unsure if proxy blocks but the output of wget looks like content.xml is not there.
I think the content.xml can’t be accessed via WGet. However, the actual problem is that you can’t reach update.knime.com. This might be due to a proxy-setting, firewall, etc. Did you check that?
Thanks for your answer and sorry for my delay.
Yes, my host can’t reach update.knime.com directly.
I tried installation with
before, but no success.
In the installation documentation and also in the forum I didn’t found any hint to installation of server behind a firewall. I can’t imagine that I’m the only one.
Thanks for any hint to setting proxy and to installation of knime server behind company firewall.
did you already see our new documentation? docs.knime.com
For installing the server you need the KNIME Server Installer.
If you want to install it offline, you in addition need the KNIME Server Executor to be installed before the Installation of the Server.
The installer will ask you if you want to select an existing installer or automatically install one by downloading. Please chose here to use the existing one as preinstalled. You can find this here as well: https://docs.knime.com/2018-12/server_installation_guide/index.html#_knime_server_executor_configuration
The KNIME Executor comes with most extensions preinstalled. If you need anything in additon, you need to install them via a local update site. You can find the description how to use local update sites here: https://docs.knime.com/2018-12/analytics_platform_installation_guide/index.html#_adding_local_update_sites
Best wishes, Iris
It’s also possible to use ‘zipped update sites’ as part of the executor installation section of the server installer that can be downloaded from the relevant release linked from the product downloads page.
