Instructions for installing Easegress from pre-built binaries or from source.

Install pre-built binaries

The easiest way to install Easegress is by using pre-built binaries:

  1. Download the appropriate compressed archive file for your platform from Releases.
  2. Extract the contents of the archive, which will create a directory containing the binaries.
  3. Add the extracted binaries to your system’s path. You can either move and/or rename the binaries to a directory already in your path (such as /usr/local/bin), or add the newly created directory to your path.

From a shell, test that Easegress is in your path:

$ easegress-server --version
Easegress v2.6.1

Build from source

  1. Either download the Easegress repo as a ZIP file from here, or clone the repo with the following command:

    $ git clone
  2. Navigate to the Easegress directory:

    $ cd easegress
  3. Execute the build script to generate the binaries, which will be placed in the bin directory:

    $ make
  4. Add the bin directory to your system’s path:

    $ export PATH="$PATH:`pwd`/bin" 
  5. Verify that easegress-server has been successfully added to your path:

    $ easegress-server --version
