Installing Kondukto is very trivial, and in most cases, it doesn't require any additional steps or configurations.

To install Kondukto, please follow the step-by-step instructions:

Create the directory and navigate to it:

mkdir Kondukto && cd Kondukto

Extract the archive:


Give execution permission to the file:

chmod +x

Download & Install the required 3rd parties:

  • Git
  • Nginx
  • Docker
  • Docker-Compose

Run the Kondukto installer:


Once the installer starts to run, it will ask you for fundamental configuration choices:


Even if you want to install it as Host, choose Docker installation. It would be better to set the Host manually if it needs it.

Do you want to proceed? (Y or N)

Please choose a database system: docker for PoC, host for production installation

Please enter hostname or IP address : https://(ip address or hostname of the server)

Please enter your registration key: {your_registration_key}

Kondukto has a service for systemd, do you want to load and enable the service? (Y or N)

Do you want to load Kondukto default Nginx configuration? (Y or N)

After these steps, it will ask you for some information to create a self-signed TLS certificate. If you want to use your organization's TLS certificate, you can skip the questions by clicking to enter.

Country Name (2 letter code) [AU]:
State or Province Name (full name) [Some-State]:
Locality Name (eg, city) []:
Organization Name (eg, company) [Internet Widgits Pty Ltd]:
Organizational Unit Name (eg, section) []:

cd /opt/.kondukto/bin

Re-license Kondukto.

If you wish to change Kondukto's hostname after the installation step, please visit the config.yaml file and change the "host" line.

# Kondukto Configuration
host: https://your_kondukto_hostname

If you want to use the database on the Host instead of Docker, you can configure it in config.yaml.

  mode: host # available values are docker, host
  host: {MongoDB_Hostname}
  port: 27017
  # Leave empty if database does not have credentials
  username: {MongoDB_Username}
  password: {MongoDB_Password}
