(:description APMonitor Linux Server: A comprehensive modeling and nonlinear optimization solution with Python, MATLAB, or Julia scripting languages.:)

The APMonitor server is installed in three steps including (1) Apache web server installation, (2) PHP installation, and (3) APMonitor server files. Below are installation instructions for Linux. [[Main/APMonitorServer|Windows web server instructions]] are also available.

!!!! Step 1: Apache Web Server

* Update and Install Apache on Ubuntu, Debian Linux

  sudo apt-get update
  sudo apt-get install apache2

* Update and Install Apache on Redhat, CentOS Linux

  sudo yum update
  sudo yum install apache2

!!!! Step 2: PHP Installation and Configuration

* Install PHP with Apache Module

  sudo apt-get install php libapache2-mod-php

* Edit /etc/php/7.0/apache2/php.ini to increase max execution time (requires sudo editing permission)

  max_execution_time = 100000000

* Restart Apache

  sudo apachectl restart

!!!! Step 3: APMonitor Installation

* [[http://apmonitor.com/download/apmonitor_install.tar.gz|APMonitor Download for Linux (apmonitor_install.tar.gz)]]

Attach:apm_python.png Attach:apm_matlab.png The APMonitor server is designed for large-scale optimization and accesses solvers of constrained, unconstrained, continuous, and discrete problems. Problems in linear programming, quadratic programming, integer programming, nonlinear optimization, systems of dynamic nonlinear equations, and multi-objective optimization can be solved. The platform can find optimal solutions, perform trade-off analyses, balance multiple design alternatives, and incorporate optimization methods into external modeling and analysis software. It is freely available for academic and commercial use. It is the same service available on the public servers but does not require an Internet connection.

* Unzip file contents from apmonitor_install.zip
* Copy all files to web server folder to /var/www/html/online/
* Test installation with:
** http://127.0.0.1/ip.php (Retrieve IP address, verifies that PHP is working)
** http://127.0.0.1 (Local host homepage)
** Run scripts in test_* to test MATLAB, Python, or Julia with the APMonitor Optimization Suite
