This guide will demonstrate how to perform a fresh installation of MagicINFO. It will not cover any system modifications.

Video Tutorial:

First, make sure you have a system that meets the requirements of Samsung.

Before installation, we advise you to use the following programs and have them installed on your PC:

  • Google Chrome as a web browser
  • Notepad++ as a text editor 

MagicINFO server requires a Database, You can choose from MSSQL or PostgreSQL. In this format, we will use PostgreSQL and this is also recommended by Samsung.

Step 1. Install PostgreSQL, please double-check if you have the right recommended version.

  • Start the installation
  • When prompted fill in a Database password
  • Note down this password in a text file (needed later in the installation process)
