Follow the instructions in Installing the LOCKSS System to use the LOCKSS Downloader.
Follow the instructions in Installing Git to install git, if it is not yet available on your system.

If you have not previously cloned the LOCKSS Installer, run this command to clone it from GitHub:
git clone https://github.com/lockss/lockss-installer
On early CentOS 7 systems (for example CentOS 7.1), you may receive the error message
fatal: unable to access 'https://github.com/lockss/lockss-installer/': Peer reports incompatible or unsupported protocol version. This is due to outdated network security libraries. Run the command
yum update -y curl nss nss-util nspras
rootto update them, and retry the git clone command.
To avoid a harmless Git warning when updating the LOCKSS Installer from GitHub in the future, run this command within the
lockss-installerdirectory created by the git clone command:
git config --local pull.rebase true
Checkout the 2.0-alpha5 branch of the LOCKSS Installer by running this command within the
lockss-installerdirectory created by the git clone command earlier:
git checkout 2.0-alpha5
