# Compile BR¶

For now, the BR is not provided as a package. You can compile the BR.

Note

If you want to store the backup files locally, we recommend that you compile the BR on one meta server of the target Nebula Graph cluster where you will perform data restoration. For more information, see Restore data from backup files.

## Prerequisites¶

To compile the BR, do a check of these:

• Go 1.14 or a later version is installed.
• make is installed.

## Procedure¶

To compile the BR, follow these steps:

1. Clone the nebula-storage repository to your machine.

git clone https://github.com/vesoft-inc/nebula-storage.git

2. Change to the br diretory.

cd nebula-storage/util/br

3. Compile the BR.

make build && make test


When the BR is compiled successfully, you can find the br binary file under the nebula-storage/util/br/bin/ directory.
