Download and Install Devin Server

On Linux, you have two options for installing Devin: interactively or unattended. The interactive is the recommended method and involves manual installation steps, suitable for individual installations. Unattended installation is ideal for setting up Devin on multiple servers simultaneously, as it requires no manual input during the process.

Download and prepare the installer script

Navigate to the tmp directory:

cd /tmp

Download the installler:


Unzip the installer:


Navigate to the installer folder:

cd install_devin

Change the permissions for the install script

chmod 755

Start the interactive installer by running the following commands in your terminal:

sudo ./

The installer will prompt for:

  • Credentials for the FileMaker Admin Console account

  • Devin Server Type (Development or Staging/Production)

Install Devin Server unattended

Alternativily, you can install Devin Server unattended by running the following in your terminal:

sudo ./ \
--username {fmsadmin username} \ 
--password {fmsadmin password} \
--type {prod / dev}

For Staging/Production Server Installations

Save the API Key

After installing a non-development server, save the API Key that gets output in the terminal. You will need this when adding the server in the Devin App.

For unattended installs, or if you loose the API Key, it can be located in /opt/Devin/info.json on the server.
