Install Sonarqube on Ubuntu - How to install SonarQube on Ubuntu 16.0.4 - How to setup Sonar on Ubuntu?

Please find steps for installing SonarQube on Ubuntu EC2. Make sure port 9000 is opened in security group(firewall rule).

SonarQube is java based tool along with back end - back end can be MySQL, Oracle or PostgreSQL. We will use Postgres for set up on Ubuntu.

Let us start with java install (skip java install if you already have it installed)

1. Java steps 

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install default-jdk -y

Verify Java Version

java -version

openjdk version "1.8.0_191"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_191-8u191-b12-2ubuntu0.16.04.1-b12)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.191-b12, mixed mode)

2. Postgres Installation

1. sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://apt.postgresql.org/pub/repos/apt/ `lsb_release -cs`-pgdg main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pgdg.list'


 
2. sudo wget -q https://www.postgresql.org/media/keys/ACCC4CF8.asc -O - | sudo apt-key add -



3. sudo apt-get -y install postgresql postgresql-contrib








4. sudo systemctl start postgresql
5. sudo systemctl enable postgresql

Login as postgres user now
7. sudo su - postgres

8. Now create a user below
createuser sonar

9. Switch to sql shell by entering
psql







Execute the below three lines (one by one)

ALTER USER sonar WITH ENCRYPTED password 'password';
CREATE DATABASE sonar OWNER sonar;
\q






type exit to come out of postgres user.




3. Now install SonarQube Web App

sudo wget https://binaries.sonarsource.com/Distribution/sonarqube/sonarqube-6.4.zip


sudo apt-get -y install unzip
sudo unzip sonarqube-6.4.zip -d /opt





sudo mv /opt/sonarqube-6.4 /opt/sonarqube -v




Modify sonar.properties file
sudo vi /opt/sonarqube/conf/sonar.properties
uncomment the below lines by removing # and add values highlighted yellow
sonar.jdbc.username=sonar
sonar.jdbc.password=password







Next, uncomment the below line, removing #
sonar.jdbc.url=jdbc:postgresql://localhost/sonar





Press escape, and enter :wq! to come out of the above screen.

Create Sonar as a service

Execute the below command:
sudo vi /etc/systemd/system/sonar.service











add the below code in green color:
[Unit]
Description=SonarQube service
After=syslog.target network.target

[Service]
Type=forking

ExecStart=/opt/sonarqube/bin/l
inux-x86-64/sonar.sh start
ExecStop=/opt/sonarqube/bin/li
nux-x86-64/sonar.sh stop

User=root
Group=root
Restart=always

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target


sudo systemctl enable sonar
sudo systemctl start sonar
sudo systemctl status sonar
type q now to come out of this mode.
Now execute the below command to see if Sonarqube is up and running. This may take a few minutes.

tail -f /opt/sonarqube/logs/sonar.log

Make sure you get the below message that says sonarqube is up..
Now access sonarQube UI by going to browser and enter public dns name with port 9000
