I just ran the apt-get install-virtuoso command and it seemed to have run fine. Then when I ran the virtuoso-t -f command, I got the error that there is no such file as virtuoso.ini which is supposed to happen after install.

Is there anything else that I have to do in order to get the virtuoso.ini (their default ini file) created? Or did I miss a step?

Thanks, Alex

It should get placed in


If its not then, then copy and paste it from the zip/rar download (should be in the /bin/installer directory)

Ah yes, the virtuoso.ini file is there in the etc/virtuoso directory. Should I move it to the /usr/local/virtuoso/bin directory from which I run the virtuoso-t -f command? Or what is the correct approach here? - Thanks! :)

Try running Virtuoso as root, so

sudo virtuoso-t -f

Before you answered I went ahead and just copied the .ini file to the same directory as the virtuoso-f file. And then I ran that file, and it made a bunch of directories and folders in that file. But Virtuoso starts up with errors. Should I revert and put things back? Or am I on somewhat the right track? Thank you!

Yes you might need to do so or you will get issues with paths

Built Virtuoso 7 from source on Ubuntu 13. The virtuoso.ini file was placed in /usr/local/virtuoso-opensource/var/lib/virtuoso/db/virtuoso.ini. The full command to start it was then:

sudo /usr/local/virtuoso-opensource/bin/virtuoso-t -f -c /usr/local/virtuoso-opensource/var/lib/virtuoso/db/virtuoso.ini

Available at http://localhost:8890, conducter user/pass is dba/dba

The minimum you need to start virtuoso is the "virtuoso-t" binary and a configuration file "virtuoso.ini". If you can find them post installation use the "find" command to locate them, go to the "virtuoso.ini" file directory run /virtuoso-t -f -c ./virtuoso.ini to start the server in foreground mode to verify it starts successfully. Then Ctrl C and stat in background mode by dropping the "-f" option.
