    Default Easy way to install Pentaho BI Community edition

    I am a student trying to install the community edition of Pentaho BI and connect it with a MySQL database as part of a project. Is there any easy way to install and configure the community edition of Pentaho BI? When installing it I was never able to get access to a GUI.

    Can you explain a little more of what you mean by "never able to get access to a GUI"

    As long as you have the right DB drivers in the right locations, you can do AdHoc reporting.

    When you start wanting to do more interesting things (MDX, Canned Reports, Dashboards, etc), then you will need to use more tools.

    BIServer itself doesn't have a GUI. It runs a webserver, which you then use a browser to access.

    If you are looking for a guide on how to set up the server with MySQL there are plenty out there including my own (shameful plug)

    Possibly cause the installation routine, involves unzipping a zip file and nothing more?
