Deploying AcuSensor for Node.js

To deploy AcuSensor, you should keep in mind that the mechanism we need to use is to invoke the sensor when launching the Node application.

๐Ÿ” Version Information

Node.js Versions tested are:

  • V14, V12, V10 on Windows
  • V14, V12, V10 on Linux

Deploying AcuSensor requires the following steps.

Step 1: Downloading AcuSensor for your Target

The instructions to download the AcuSensor file can be found here: https://www.acunetix.com/support/docs/installing-acusensor/.

Step 2: Copy the AcuSensor to the Target

For the purposes of this document, we will assume that we will be creating a dedicated folder inside the ROOT folder of your operating system to hold the AcuSensor file.

  • Under Windows:
  • Create a folder "C:\acusensor\"
  • Copy the node-acusensor.tar file into "C:\acusensor\"
  • Under Linux:
  • Create a folder "/acusensor" with the following command:
  • mkdir /acusensor/
  • Use "cd" to navigate to the folder which contains your downloaded AcuSensor file and run the following command:
  • cp node-acusensor.tar /acusensor/

Step 3: Launch your Node.js web application invoking the AcuSensor

  • Under Windows:
  • Use "cd" to navigate to the folder which contains your web application (where the "app.js" file resides) and run the following command:
  • npx \acusensor\node-acusensor.tar app.js
  • Under Linux:
  • Use "cd" to navigate to the folder which contains your web application (where the "app.js" file resides) and run the following command:
  • npx /acusensor/node-acusensor.tar app.js

Uninstall AcuSensor

  • Under Windows, remove the "C:\acusensor\node-acusensor.tar" file and then remove the "C:\acusensor" folder
  • Under Linux, run the following command:
  • rm -rf /acusensor

Note: Although Acunetix AcuSensor files are secured with a unique strong built-in password, it is recommended that the AcuSensor files are uninstalled and removed from the web application if they are no longer in use.
