How to install a .bin file using SSH on Ubuntu/CentOS

Bin files are Linux self extracting binary files that is commonly used for server side software.

To install and extract the bin file can be done in three easy steps:

  1. Login to SSH and go to the location of your file (using 'cd' to change the directory)
  2. Ensure the permission of the bin file is executable. This can be done using the following code:
    chmod +x your-file.bin
  3. Once the permissions are correct you can then run the bin file:
    ./your-file.bin
Once you have started the run you will see the install script running on your SSH terminal. If you have any issues running your bin file you can contact a member of the support team 24/7.
