Step 2: Install the Presto IBM i Components.

  1. Log on to an IBM i session and execute the command XL_PRESTOI/BCDINSTALL.
  2. At the first screen presented select option 1 for a new install and press Enter to ? continue.
  3. The install will prompt you for an environment name to create. The default is XL_PRESTO. If this is your second, or subsequent, install, enter a different name (e.g. XL_PR61, or another unique name). Press Enter to continue.
  4. Enter the IFS directory to be created for your Presto environment. The default? directory is /esdi/xl_presto (or the environment name you chose). Then press Enter to continue.
  5. Confirm the Apache HTTP server configuration to be created in your IFS. The default location is /www/xl_presto (or the environment name you chose). Press Enter to continue.
  6. ?When prompted, enter the license key provided to you. If you don't have a valid Presto license key, contact BCD at (630) 986-0800 to request one. Note: If you are installing Presto for the first time you can enter the license key during the install (the recommended option) or afterwards by adding XL_PRESTO to your library list (ADDLIBLE XL_PRESTO) and using the UNLOCK command.
  7. Press Enter at the license key entry screen to continue restoring the required objects.
  8. When the IBM i installation finishes the Installation Status screen presents a summary of the library, IFS directory and HTTP server instance created. If you like you can print this screen or make a note of the values. Then continue with the next step.
