Dear Wiki user,

The "GettingStarted" page has been changed by SylvainLebresne.

--------------------------------------------------

  == Step 2: Running a single node ==
  Cassandra is meant to run on a cluster of nodes, but will run equally well on a single machine.
This is a handy way of getting familiar with the software while avoiding the complexities
of a larger system.
  
- Since there isn't currently an installation method per se, the easiest solution is to simply
run Cassandra from an extracted archive<<FootNote(Users of Debian or Debian-based derivatives
can install the latest stable release in package form, see DebianPackaging for details.)>><<FootNote(Users
of RPM-based distributions can get packages from [[http://www.riptano.com/blog/announcing-rpms-cassandra|Riptano]])>>
or SVN checkout (see: [[#picking_a_version|Picking a version]]). Also, unless you've downloaded
a binary distribution, you'll need to compile the software by invoking `ant` from the top-level
directory.

  The distribution's sample configuration `conf/cassandra.yaml` contains reasonable defaults
for single node operation, but you will need to make sure that the paths exist for `data_file_directories`,
`commitlog_directory`, and `saved_caches_directory`. Additionally, take a minute now to look
over the logging configuration in `conf/log4j.properties` and make sure that directories exist
for the configured log file(s) as well.
