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.
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
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.
