This part of the documentation covers the ways to run PatZilla. Please read this section carefully.

Running MongoDB

If the MongoDB database already is running on your machine, you can skip this step.

You can either install and run it system-wide on Debian GNU/Linux:

apt install mongodb-clients mongodb-server

… or run it ad-hoc in the current working directory:

mkdir -p ./var/lib/mongodb
mongod --dbpath=./var/lib/mongodb --smallfiles

Running PatZilla

Start the web server using the Configuration file created before:

pserve /path/to/patzilla.ini

Then, open http://localhost:6543/navigator/

Have fun!
