First Steps

For Linux, Java can be installed from Oracle or via your package manager. Mac users should download Java from Oracle at the Oracle JDK page.

Run the following commands in the directory where you've downloaded VoltDB to go from a downloaded kit to a running server. There is no additional install step, though you may want to add VoltDB binaries to your PATH environment variable.

You can stop VoltDB by pressing CTRL-C.

Note that if your web browser already expands tar.gz files on download into plain tar archives, you can use "tar -xf" to expand the file, or just double-click it in your GUI.
