Quick Installation Guide

The following is a quick guide to get GeoNode up and running in most common operating systems.

Linux

Ubuntu

The easiest way to get the .deb is to install it using APT, the standard installation management tool for Ubuntu and other Debian-based systems.

  1. First, make sure you have the add-apt-repository binary available:

    sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
    
  2. Set up the GeoNode PPA repository (you only need to do this once; the repository will still be available for upgrades later):

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:geonode/release
    
  3. Install the package. This step will also automatically download all necessary dependencies:

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install geonode
    

Once the package is installed, please consult the Configuring GeoNode for Production to learn how to create an account for the admin user and tweak the settings to get more performance.

CentOS/RHEL and other *nix distros

We recommend you to download the latest release and modify the included install.sh and support/config.sh. GeoNode has been installed in CentOS/RHEL using this mechanism.

Once the package is installed, please consult the Configuring GeoNode for Production to learn how to create the admin user and tweak the settings to get more performance.

Windows, OSX and others

The recommended install method in these platforms is to use a virtualization solution, like Virtual Box, install the latest Ubuntu Linux and then proceed with the steps mentioned above.

Some GeoNode developers prefer to use Vagrant - a VirtualBox wrapper, the Vagrant quickstart guide shows how to get a Linux VM configured in most operating systems.
