In this course, our primary goal is to equip you with the skills to create a customized installation file and effectively install GeoServer. GeoServer, while a powerful tool, may not always provide a ready-made Windows installer. Therefore, this course will empower you to confidently build an installation package from the ground up. Our journey will encompass several essential steps:


  1. Downloading and Installing NSIS: We’ll kick things off by acquiring and setting up the Nullsoft Scriptable Install System (NSIS), a versatile tool for creating Windows installers.
  2. Obtaining and Unpacking GeoServer Packages: You’ll learn how to acquire both the binary and source GeoServer packages, ensuring you have the necessary components to proceed.
  3. Managing Files: We’ll delve into the crucial task of copying essential files, including licenses and other dependencies, to create a complete package.
  4. Script Compilation: We’ll guide you through the process of crafting and compiling a script tailored to your GeoServer installation.
  5. GeoServer Installation: The heart of the course involves installing GeoServer itself, making it fully functional on your system.
  6. Adding GeoServer Metadata Extension: We’ll explore the process of enhancing GeoServer’s capabilities by adding the GeoServer Metadata extension.

To further extend GeoServer’s functionality, we’ll also delve into installing a plugin, specifically the metadata plugin. By the course’s end, you’ll have the confidence and skills to set up GeoServer on your Windows system, even when an installer isn’t readily available.
