Server Installation

Introduction

Before you can install UiPath Process Mining you must copy the installation package to your server.
Follow these steps to create the installation folder.

Step

Action

1

Download the UiPath Process Mining installation package.

2

On the server, create a folder for UiPath Process Mining. For instance, D:\processmining.

In the rest of this guide, we will refer to this directory as <PLATFORMDIR>.

Note: For multiple installations on the same server, you must create a different folder for each installation.

3

Create the folder <PLATFORMDIR>\builds.

4

Place the installation package in the <PLATFORMDIR>\builds folder.
• Right click on the installation package.
• Select Extract All…. A sub folder is now created automatically.

In the rest of this guide, we will refer to this directory as <EXTRACTDIR>.

You have downloaded the installation package and copied it to your server. The package can now be installed.

Folder Compression

Cache files use a lot of disk space. To save disk space, it is strongly recommended to set the Compress contents to save disk space option for the UiPath Process Mining server installation folder.

Follow these steps to set the Compress contents to save disk space option.

Step

Action

1

In Windows Explorer, right click on the UiPath Process Mining installation folder <PLATFORMDIR> and select Properties....

2

On the General tab, click on Advanced....

3

Enable the Compress contents to save disk space option and click on OK (2x).

📘

Note

If you enable the Compress contents to save disk space option, you cannot enable the Encrypt contents to secure data option.

Setting up Windows Server

Before UiPath Process Mining can be installed, the server needs to be prepared, i.e., all roles and prerequisites need to be installed. From this point onward, the installation package of UiPath Process Mining is needed.

Follow these steps to modify prepare Windows Server for the installation of UiPath Process Mining.

Step

Action

1

Login on the server and open the Server Manager.

2

In the Manage menu, click on Add Roles and Features.

3

Click through the wizard and keep the default settings.
• In the Server Roles step, enable Web Server (IIS).
• Continue clicking through the wizard and reboot the server if necessary.

From the install directory in the installation package, install the following packages:
iisnode-full-v0.2.18-x64-mv0.msi,
rewrite_amd64.msi,
vc_redist.x64.exe (for UiPath Process Mining 20.4 and earlier versions).

Note: For multiple installations on the same server, these packages needs to be installed on the server only once.

5

Reboot the server, and verify that http://localhost shows an IIS test site.

IIS is enabled in Windows Server, and the prerequisites are installed. http://localhost shows the IIS test site.
