Can ODK be installed on CentOS Linux?

Can ODK Aggregrate server be installed on CentOS Linux or must be Ubuntu ?
Thanks

Yes you can install Aggregate on the linux distribution you want.
Installing aggregate means to install tomcat and Postgresql, then configure aggregate with the installer and deploy the war file.

Thanks! Another question, if I don't use PostgreSQL, but MySQL, can I install MySQL version8 ?
I appreciate your prompt replyl.

The doc specifies you have to run at least 5.7 mysql version

Thanks again mathieubossaert ! You are the expert !
I have this combinations:
CentOS7
java-11-openjdk.x86_64
Tomcat 8
MySQL 5.7.28
mysql-connector-java-8.0.18.tar.gz

Do you think the above combination should work ?

Thanks !

No I am not an expert. But I already ran aggregate installations. So according to the specs I think your config should be ok...

Use Java v8, not 11. I struggled for a long time in figuring out what was not working, until i downgraded Java to 8 and it started working. Rest of the specs are exactly what I used.
