Installing RethinkDB server
Installing on OS X
There are two ways to install RethinkDB on OS X:
Via a binary package:
Prerequisites: We provide native binaries for OS X Lion and above (>= 10.7).
Download the disk
rethinkdb.pkg, and follow the installation instructions.
Prerequisites: Make sure you're on OS X Lion or above (>= 10.7) and have Homebrew installed.
Run following in your terminal:
brew update && brew install rethinkdb
Installing on Ubuntu
Prerequisites: We provide binaries both for 32-bit and 64-bit Ubuntu Lucid and above (>= 10.04).
To install the server, you have to add the RethinkDB
PPA to your list of
repositories and install via
apt-get. To do this, paste the
following lines into your terminal:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rethinkdb/ppa && \ sudo apt-get update && \ sudo apt-get install rethinkdb
If you don't have the
add-apt-repository command, install it first:
- Ubuntu Quantal and above (>= 12.10) —
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
- Earlier Ubuntu versions (< 12.10) —
sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
Installing on other systems
We'll be packaging RethinkDB for other systems, but for now you can try building from source.
Now that you've installed the server, check out the driver installation page.
