One-Step Setup

If you’re using one of these operating systems, our one-step installer will automatically configure your system and install the correct package for you:

sh$ bash -c "$(curl -L install.crate.io)"

If you don’t already have Java 8 installed, the above command will try to take care of that for you along with a few other housekeeping tasks.

Caution

These instructions are designed to get you up and running on your personal computer.

For putting CrateDB into production, you can learn more about deploying or scaling CrateDB in the CrateDB Guide.

Note

CrateDB requires Java 8, preferably update 20 or later. We recommend using OpenJDK on Linux Systems.

The same JVM version must be used on all CrateDB nodes.

Next Steps

Now you have CrateDB up and running, it’s time to import some test data.
