Prerequisites

1. Create a Middleware account
2. Keep logging into your account  

Use our one-step easy installation

To install an agent on a host, copy the  Installation command and paste it into the command prompt. Your command will look like the following example, and it will include your API key, so you won't need to create one.

MW_API_KEY=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx TARGET=https://uid.middleware.io:443 bash -c "$(curl -L https://install.middleware.io/scripts/apt-install.sh)"


*If you are using the above command, replace the MW_API_KEY value with your API Key
* Replace "uid" with the text in the URL (ex URL is "s05zpimz.middleware.io" , here s05zpimz is uid.) 

Verify the status of agent 

Run the agent’s status command to verify the installation.

sudo systemctl status mwservice




A successful installation returns an Agent Status report that begins with Agent information like following 



Uninstall the Middleware agent

To uninstall the middleware agent, please use the following command.

bash -c "$(curl -L https://install.middleware.io/scripts/apt-uninstall.sh)"
