Linux Installation

Monyog runs as a web application on a server, from which it connects to and monitors MySQL database servers. The MySQL servers can run on any operating system. Monyog can run on Linux <install-windows> or any distribution of the Linux operating system.

Installing Monyog

Webyog provides two types of installation media for Linux operating systems: RPM and TAR. Each is available for 32-bit and 64-bit architectures. For RPM-based Linux distributions, you can install Monyog through the package manager or the rpm command. For all other distributions, you can manually install Monyog from a tarball.


Unlike the Windows installation, neither of these methods prompts the user to supply a default password or port number. By default, Monyog runs on port 5555, with the user admin and a blank password. You can change them through the web UI later.

RPM Installation

RPM-based Linux distributions include Fedora, CentOS, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, openSUSE, SUSE Enterprise Linux, and any distro based on these operating systems. If you want to install Monyog on these distros, select the RPM download link that corresponds to your hardware architecture: 64 Bit RPM or 32 Bit RPM.


The link downloads an .rpm package. The filename pattern is MONyog-<version>.<architecture>.rpm. You can install Monyog by calling the package manager on this file.

  • For Fedora and newer Red Hat-based distros, you can install Monyog with DNF:
# dnf install /path/to/MONyog-*.rpm
  • For older Red Hat-based distros, you can use YUM:
# yum install /path/to/MONyog-*.rpm
  • For openSUSE and SUSE-based distros, use YaST:
# yast -i /path/to/MONyog-*.rpm



  • For any RPM-based distro, you can also use RPM itself:
# rpm -ivh /path/to/MONyog-*.rpm


Whichever package manager you use, it installs Monyog in the /usr/local/MONyog/ directory. You can now begin configuring and using Monyog.

Start/Stop Monyog

  • Redhat/Fedora systems

In Redhat and Fedora systems if Monyog is installed from the RPM package, the daemon script 'MONyogd' can be used to start/stop the server. This script is in"/etc/init.d/" directory.

You can use one of the following command to start Monyog:

 # service MONyogd start


 # /etc/init.d/MONyogd start

To start the Monyog service on a system that uses systemd, run this command instead:

# systemctl start MONyog


similarly for stopping:

# service MONyogd stop


# /etc/init.d/MONyogd stop

By default in these systems Monyog will be started automatically even after a restart.

  • SUSE systems

In SUSE systems if Monyog is installed from a RPM package, the YaST 'run-level tool' can be used to start/stop the server. You may enable/disable the Monyog service from YaST (Administrative settings) > System > System Services.

Upgrading Monyog

To upgrade Monyog in Redhat/Fedora from a previous installation the following command can be used:

# rpm -Uvh <MONyog_package>.rpm



Monyog upgrade is supported from Monyog 2.7.0-0 onwards, currently Monyog supports upgrade from lower version of Monyog to upper version of Monyog.

Tar Installation

In the event that your server runs a Linux distribution that isn't RPM-based, such as Debian or Ubuntu, you can still manually install Monyog from a tarball. Note that Monyog does not require any sort of compiling. You just need to unpack it. Select the download link that corresponds to your hardware: 32 Bit Tar or 64 Bit TAR.


The download link retrieves a .tar.gz file from Webyog. The pattern for the filename is MONyog-<version>.<architecture>.tar.gz. To install it run Tar setting the output to /usr/local or any prefix appropriate to your system:

# tar -xvf /path/to/MONyog-*.tar.gz -C /usr/local



This installs Monyog in the same path as the RPM package. In order to use the Monyog service, you also need to copy the MONyog service script to /etc/init.d/ directory.

# cp /path/to/MONyog/bin/MONyog /etc/init.d/

Start/Stop Monyog

This description applies if you have extracted Monyog from zipped tar(.tar.gz) package.

There is one shell script named "MONyog" within "MONyog/bin" directory. For example if Monyog has been extracted to ~/MONyog/ directory, you can start Monyog by typing:

$ ~/MONyog/bin/MONyog start

image Similarly, to stop:

$ ~/MONyog/bin/MONyog stop

Upgrading Monyog

Untar the MONyog package in the same directory where you had untarred the previous MONyog, use the command: 64 bit tar.

# tar -xvf /path/to/MONyog-*.tar.gz -C /usr/local
