The standalone version of eHour is installed using an installer, specific for your operating system. 

Step 1: Download and install Java

The Java runtime environment is not bundled with eHour. When Java is not installed, download and install the latest JRE from Oracle's site

Step 2: Download and run the eHour installer

Click for OS specific instructions:

 On Windows

Windows

Download eHour

At http://ehour.nl/download/download.phtml there is a separate 32-bit and 64-bit eHour download for Windows. The version must match the Java environment installed - when you installed a 32-bit Java environment on a 64-bit Windows OS you need to download the 32-bit eHour download. Nowadays it's most likely that you run a 64-bit version of Java, Windows and thus eHour.

Install eHour

Using the installer, eHour will be installed as a service.The advantage of running eHour as a service versus starting it manually:

  • automated recovery of eHour after a server restart
  • reduced risk of shutting down eHour by accident

To be able to install eHour as a service, the installer needs administrator permissions.

When the installer finishes eHour is started automatically and accessible with your browser on http://localhost:8000/

Embedded database

After installation the standalone version uses an embedded database. This embedded database is meant for evaluation purposes and not production environments.

When you use eHour in a production environment it's recommended to use MySQL or PostgreSQL as your database. Check here on how to configure an external database.

Download eHour

~/ehour> ./ehour start
Starting ehour
 ~/ehour> ./ehour status
The daemon is running.
 ~/ehour> ./ehour stop
