Install Nebula graph with the tar.gz file

You can install Nebula Graph by downloading the tar.gz file.


Nebula Graph provides installing with the tar.gz file starting from version 2.6.0.

Installation steps

  1. Download the Nebula Graph tar.gz file using the following address.

    Before downloading, you need to replace <release_version> with the version you want to download.

    //Centos 7<release_version>/nebula-graph-<release_version>.el7.x86_64.tar.gz
    //Centos 8<release_version>/nebula-graph-<release_version>.el8.x86_64.tar.gz
    //Ubuntu 1604<release_version>/nebula-graph-<release_version>.ubuntu1604.amd64.tar.gz
    //Ubuntu 1804<release_version>/nebula-graph-<release_version>.ubuntu1804.amd64.tar.gz
    //Ubuntu 2004<release_version>/nebula-graph-<release_version>.ubuntu2004.amd64.tar.gz

    For example, to download the Nebula Graph v2.6.0 tar.gz file for CentOS 7.5, run the following command:

  2. Decompress the tar.gz file to the Nebula Graph installation directory.

    tar -xvzf <tar.gz_file_name> -C <install_path>
    • tar.gz_file_name specifies the name of the tar.gz file.
    • install_path specifies the installation path.

    For example:

    tar -xvzf nebula-graph-2.6.0.el7.x86_64.tar.gz -C /home/joe/nebula/install
  3. Modify the name of the configuration file.

    Enter the decompressed directory, rename the files nebula-graphd.conf.default, nebula-metad.conf.default, and nebula-storaged.conf.default in the subdirectory etc, and delete .default to apply the default configuration of Nebula Graph. To modify the configuration, see Configurations.

So far, you have installed Nebula Graph successfully.
