3. Installing the LOCKSS System
This chapter describes how to install LOCKSS 2.0-alpha4 for the first time.
If you are upgrading from LOCKSS 2.0-alpha3, see Upgrading From LOCKSS 2.0-alpha3.
If you are currently running the LOCKSS 1.x system, for example version 1.75.7 of the LOCKSS daemon, you can use the instructions in this chapter to test the LOCKSS 2.0-alpha4 system on another machine, but it is not yet possible to migrate your classic system.
Before you begin installing the LOCKSS 2.x system, we strongly recommend you first bring your operating system up to date by applying security updates and upgrading installed packages.
