3.3. Downloading the LOCKSS Installer

You will need to download the LOCKSS Installer from GitHub using Git.

Follow these instructions as the lockss user 1:

  1. Run this command:

    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 This is due to outdated network security libraries.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 nspr as root to update them, and retry the git clone command.

  2. Go into the lockss-installer directory created by the git clone command:

    cd lockss-installer


    Many commands in this manual are run from this lockss-installer directory. Run the command pwd to display its full path (typically /home/lockss/lockss-installer) and make a note of it.

  3. To avoid a harmless Git warning when updating the LOCKSS Installer from GitHub in the future, run this command:

    git config --local pull.rebase true
