QCAD Server Installation

Post by dghosef » Mon Jul 16, 2018 9:01 pm

I have a few questions about the QCAD Server Version. I am trying to install the QCAD Server version onto my server for my website to process DXF to PDF conversions for users. Is QCAD compatible with CentOS 6.9? Do I need root access on my server to install it? I assume that to install it, I SSH onto my server and then install the software. Is there a better way? Also, does the software come with installation instructions?
Thanks in advance

Very likely, yes. Please try to install the free trial version first:
https://qcad.org/download

It's quite possible that you have to install dependencies as well. You can check for unmet dependencies as follows:

Code: Select all

cd ~/opt/qcad-3.21.2-trial-linux-x86_64
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=. ldd qcad-bin
If you get errors related to GLIBC, you'd have to install the Qt 4 legacy package (with "Qt 4" in the name) under:
https://qcad.org/download
-> All Downloads
Do I need root access on my server to install it? I assume that to install it
For QCAD not. You can install QCAD anywhere you like and it is installed into one directory, e.g. ~/opt/qcad-3.21.2-trial-linux-x86_64.

However, if dependencies are not met, you might want to install those system-wide. You can also put any missing libraries into the QCAD installation directory if you prefer.
Also, does the software come with installation instructions?
You can find installation instructions at:
https://qcad.org/qcad-installation

Unfortunately, it's impossible to provide more specific instructions for Linux due to its heterogeneous nature.
