Users preferring a self-hosted web server can follow the instructions below to install the Rekor Scout® Web Server locally. Self-hosted installations of the Rekor Scout Web Server store metadata from each license plate read in a local MySQL database. Full images of the plate capture remain in a rolling buffer on the hard drive where the Agent is installed.
When sizing a server for Rekor Scout make sure to select a sufficiently fast hard drive. For web servers supporting up to 200 Agents, a single SSD should be sufficient. For larger installations, the server will likely need multiple hard drives configured as a RAID.
Minimum system requirements:
Ubuntu Linux 20.04 64-bit
250GB SSD hard drive
Dual-core or greater CPU
Download the Ubuntu 20.04 64-bit install image and burn it to a DVD or create a bootable flash drive:
