There are basically three methods to install LiveConfig:

  1. using the installer script

    wget -O- | sh
  2. manual installation

    Add the GPG key and the repository, then install the package liveconfig (see detailed instructions for Debian/Ubuntu and CentOS/RHEL).

  3. automated installation (AutoDeploy)

    If you have strong automation requirements you can automate most parts of the LiveConfig installation. See the instructions on AutoDeploy for details.

The repositories contain the following LiveConfig packages:


This is the “main” package of LiveConfig. This installs LiveConfig, providing a web interface at port 8443.


If you want to set up a multi-server installation, this package is required on each “slave server”. Please see the chapter LiveConfig Client for more informations. The package lcclient is nearly identical with liveconfig, but doesn’t contain the web interface (so this requires a running LiveConfig server to connect to).


A dummy package containing dependencies to all packages for a “typical” web server installation. This package will automatically install:

  • Web server: Apache httpd

  • Mail server: Postix & Dovecot (including ClamAV Antivirus and OpenDKIM)

  • Database (MariaDB or MySQL)

  • FTP Server (ProFTPD or vsftpd)

  • PHP (CGI/FastCGI and CLI)

You can find the source of this meta package at the LiveConfig GitHub page.

Depending on your actual setup you might want to install additional packages (like e.g. SpamAssassin, Postgrey).
