Hub 2023.2 Help

Start and Stop Hub ZIP

This page describes how to stop and start your Hub server. To prevent unexpected loss of data, you need to stop your Hub server before performing any of the following updates:

  • Changing the location of the Hub database or other application files.

  • Modifying Hub properties or JVM options for your Hub server.

  • Switching traffic from HTTP to HTTPS and vice versa.

  • Upgrading your Hub installation.

If you installed Hub with a ZIP distribution, you run Hub from the command line. The scripts that you use to start and stop Hub are located in the <hub_home>/bin/ directory. The <hub_home> directory is the location where the ZIP distribution was unpacked during installation.
