Installing the Host Server Components

Enable the TeamDrive Host Server yum Repository

The TeamDrive Host Server components are available in the form of RPM packages, hosted in a dedicated yum repository. This makes the installation and applying of future updates of the software very easy — you can simply run yum update to keep your Host Server software up to date.

To enable the repository, you need to download the td-hostserver.repo file and place it into the directory /etc/yum.repos.d/, e.g. by using wget:

[root@hostserver ~]# wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/td-hostserver.repo \

This will enable the “TeamDrive Host Server Version 3.6” repository, which you can check by running yum repolist afterwards:

[root@hostserver ~]# yum repolist
Loaded plugins: security
repo id                            repo name                                   status

Download and Install the TeamDrive Host Server Package

Perform the download and installation of the Host Server installation RPM package using the yum package manager:

[root@hostserver ~]# yum install td-hostserver

The TeamDrive Hosting Service depends on the Yvva Runtime Environment version 1.2 or later to be installed and configured. It will be installed by yum as a dependency on td-hostserver automatically.

Once the TeamDrive Host Server software has been installed successfully, you can proceed with the initial configuration.

Installing the Host Server HTML Documentation (optional)

Beginning with Host Server version, the documentation (in HTML format) can be installed locally, so you can access it directly from the Host Server (or any other host running an Apache HTTP Server).

To install the HTML Documentation, install the following package via yum from the “TeamDrive Host Server” repository:

[root@hostserver ~]# yum install td-hostserver-doc-html

The HTML documents will be installed in directory /var/www/html/td-hostserver-doc. From your web browser, open the following URL to access the documentation:


This step is optional. If you leave the documentation installed when the Host Server goes into production and is accessible from the public Internet, you should ensure to restrict access to this URL to trusted hosts or networks only. This can be achieved by adding the appropriate access control rules to the file /etc/httpd/conf.d/td-hostserver-doc.httpd.conf.
