Install TeamCity

mkdir /opt/teamcity
mv TeamCity /opt/teamcity

Download PostgreSQL JDBC driver

We need to download PostgreSQL JDBC driver in order to use PostgreSQL database for TeamCity. You can download it from this link also or use the following command to download via yum.

mkdir -p /opt/teamcity/TeamCity/.BuildServer/lib/jdbc/

wget -P /opt/teamcity/TeamCity/.BuildServer/lib/jdbc/

We will create a startup script to start teamcity. Create a new file in /etc/systemd/system/teamcity.service.

vim /etc/systemd/system/teamcity.service

Description=TeamCity Server

; Make sure the CATALINA_PID env variable is setup in $TEAMCITY_HOME/bin/
ExecStart=/opt/teamcity/TeamCity/bin/ start
ExecStop=/opt/teamcity/TeamCity/bin/ stop


Enable and Start TeamCity Services

Now we will enable and start TeamCity using systemctl. Before we need to reload the daemon because we have created new service file.

systemctl enable teamcity

systemctl start teamcity

Configure postgresql

Open /var/lib/pgsql/9.6/data/pg_hba.conf in your favourite editor and replace ident by md5.





systemctl restart postgresql-9.6

Create user and database in PostgreSQL

Now we will create a user in PostgreSQL database for TeamCity.

[root@installvirtual ~]# psql -U postgres
Password for user postgres:
psql (9.6.3)
Type "help" for help.

postgres=# CREATE USER teamcity WITH PASSWORD 'teamcity';
postgres=# CREATE DATABASE teamcity OWNER teamcity;
postgres=# \q

Now we have created a user in PostgreSQL let’s go to the TeamCity web interface and continue installation.
