Installing Drill on Linux and Mac OS X
First, check that you meet the prerequisites, and then install Apache Drill on Linux or Mac OS X:
Complete the following steps to install Drill:
- In a terminal window, change to the directory where you want to install Drill.
- Download the latest version of Apache Drill here or from the Apache Drill mirror site with the command appropriate for your system:
curl -o apache-drill-1.16.0.tar.gz http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi/drill/drill-1.16.0/apache-drill-1.16.0.tar.gz
- Copy the downloaded file to the directory where you want to install Drill.
- Extract the contents of the Drill
.tar.gzfile. Use sudo only if necessary:
tar -xvzf <.tar.gz file name>
The extraction process creates the installation directory containing the Drill software. You can now start Drill.
