Installing HttpFS

HttpFS is distributed in the hadoop-httpfs package. To install it, use your preferred package manager application. Install the package on the system that will run the HttpFS server.

  Important:

If you have not already done so, install Cloudera's Yum, zypper/YaST or Apt repository before using the following commands to install HttpFS. For instructions, see CDH4 Installation.

To install the HttpFS package on a Red Hat-compatible system:

$ sudo yum install hadoop-httpfs

To install the HttpFS server package on a SLES system:

$ sudo zypper install hadoop-httpfs

To install the HttpFS package on an Ubuntu or Debian system:

$ sudo apt-get install hadoop-httpfs
  Note:

Installing the httpfs package creates an httpfs service configured to start HttpFS at system startup time.

You are now ready to configure HttpFS. See the next section.
