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.
