Step 3: Create Data Directory

Create data directory on host system to ensure data used on container is persistent.

sudo mkdir -p /jfrog/artifactory
sudo chown -R 1030 /jfrog/

Step 4: Start JFrog Artifactory container

To start an Artifactory container, use the command:

docker run --name artifactory -d -p 8081:8081 -p 8082:8082 
  -v /jfrog/artifactory:/var/opt/jfrog/artifactory 

You can pass Java system properties to the JVM running Artifactory using EXTRA_JAVA_OPTIONS. Check more on Docker setup link. See example below.

docker run --name artifactory -d -p 8081:8081 -p 8082:8082 
   -v /jfrog/artifactory:/var/opt/jfrog/artifactory 
   -e EXTRA_JAVA_OPTIONS='-Xms512m -Xmx2g -Xss256k -XX:+UseG1GC' 

Use docker ps command to view container information.

Step 5: Running JFrog Artifactory container with Systemd

Systemd is the default init system for CentOS 7. We can use it to manage JFrog Artifactory container.

Create Artifactory service unit file.

sudo vi /etc/systemd/system/artifactory.service


Description=Setup Systemd script for Artifactory Container

ExecStartPre=-/usr/bin/docker kill artifactory
ExecStartPre=-/usr/bin/docker rm artifactory
ExecStart=/usr/bin/docker run --name artifactory -p 8081:8081 -p 8082:8082 
  -v /jfrog/artifactory:/var/opt/jfrog/artifactory 
ExecStop=-/usr/bin/docker kill artifactory
ExecStop=-/usr/bin/docker rm artifactory


Reload systemd.

sudo systemctl daemon-reload

Then start Artifactory container with systemd.

sudo systemctl start artifactory

Enable it to start at system boot.

sudo systemctl enable artifactory

Status can be checked with:

systemctl status artifactory

Sample output:

Also check service binding with:

$ sudo ss -tunelp | egrep '8081|8082'
tcp    LISTEN     0      128       *:8081                  *:*                   users:(("docker-proxy",pid=7044,fd=4)) ino:37499 sk:ffff96fe09de3e00 <->

tcp    LISTEN     0      128    [::]:8081               [::]:*                   users:(("docker-proxy",pid=7051,fd=4)) ino:36762 sk:ffff96feb68f98c0 v6only:1 <->
tcp    LISTEN     0      128    [::]:8082               [::]:*                   users:(("docker-proxy",pid=7032,fd=4)) ino:36748 sk:ffff96feb68f9080 v6only:1 <->

Step 6: Access Artifactory Web Interface

Artifactory can be accessed using the following URL:


Follow setup instructions that follows.

Select the package type(s) you want to create default repositories for.

You can skip to set later.

Click “Finish” button to complete installation.

Step 7: Configure Nginx reverse proxy (Optional)

If you want to use Nginx as Proxy with SSL, check out the guide below:

Method 2: Install JFrog Artifactory using RPM

Here are the steps you need to install JFrog Artifactory on CentOS 7 from RPM packages. Before we begin first update and reboot your system.

sudo yum -y update && sudo shutdown -r now

Step 1: Install Java

Use the commands below to install Java on CentOS:

sudo yum -y install java-11-openjdk java-11-openjdk-devel

If you have more than one Java version you can set default with the following command:

sudo sudo alternatives --config java

To show default version run:

$ java -version
openjdk version "11.0.19" 2023-04-18 LTS
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (Red_Hat- (build 11.0.19+7-LTS)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (Red_Hat- (build 11.0.19+7-LTS, mixed mode, sharing)

Step 2: Set JAVA_HOME

After installing Java, Set JAVA_HOME environment variable.

Step 3: Install and Configure Database Server

Install MariaDB repository into the system:

curl -LsS https://downloads.mariadb.com/MariaDB/mariadb_repo_setup | sudo bash -s --

Install database packages:

sudo yum -y install epel-release
sudo yum install MariaDB-server MariaDB-client MariaDB-backup -y

Start and enable mariadb database server:

sudo systemctl enable --now mariadb

Secure MariaDB database server installation:

sudo mariadb-secure-installation

Step 4: Add JFrog Artifactory RPM repository

The JFrog Artifactory packages are available on official repository. Add it by running:

curl -sL https://bintray.com/jfrog/artifactory-rpms/rpm | sudo tee /etc/yum.repos.d/bintray-jfrog-artifactory-rpms.repo
wget https://releases.jfrog.io/artifactory/artifactory-rpms/artifactory-rpms.repo
sudo mv artifactory-rpms.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/;

This repository works for both Artifactory CE and Artifactory OSS editions.

Step 5: Install JFrog Artifactory on CentOS 7

Installing JFrog Artifactory is a matter of running yum command and specifying Artifactory edition to install.

Install JFrog Artifactory OSS:

sudo yum -y install jfrog-artifactory-oss wget

Install JFrog Artifactory CE:

sudo yum install jfrog-artifactory-cpp-ce wget 


echo "export ARTIFACTORY_HOME=/opt/jfrog/artifactory" | sudo tee -a /etc/profile
source /etc/profile

Files and Folders Locations:

When installed from an RPM distribution, Artifactory retains the FHS (Filesystem Hierarchy Standard) format:

File/Folder Location Ownership
Tomcat home /opt/jfrog/artifactory/tomcat artifactory  (root for sub dirs)
Artifactory startup script /etc/init.d/artifactory root
Artifactory logs /var/opt/jfrog/artifactory/logs artifactory
Artifactory home /var/opt/jfrog/artifactory artifactory 
Artifactory etc /etc/opt/jfrog/artifactory artifactory 
Artifactory env variables /etc/opt/jfrog/artifactory/default artifactory 
Artifactory binary /opt/jfrog/artifactory root 

Step 6: Configuring Artifactory to use MariaDB

Enter MySQL Shell

sudo mysql -u root

Run the template to create database of Artifactory.

source /opt/jfrog/artifactory/app/misc/db/createdb_mariadb.sql;

Start Artifactory service:

sudo systemctl start artifactory.service
sudo systemctl enable artifactory.service

Check service status:

$ systemctl status artifactory.service
 artifactory.service - Artifactory service
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/artifactory.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled)
