+*Verify the integrity of the files
+
+ We recommend that you verify the integrity of the downloaded files using the PGP signatures
and MD5 checksums.
+
+ The PGP signatures can be verified using PGP or GPG. First download the {{{http://www.apache.org/dist/continuum/KEYS}KEYS}}
+ as well as the asc signature file for the particular distribution. Make sure you get these
files from
+ {{{http://www.apache.org/dist/continuum}the main distribution directory}},
+ rather than from a mirror. Then verify the signatures using
+
+
+ % pgpk -a KEYS
+
+ % pgpv ${filename}.tar.gz.asc
+
+ or
+
+ % pgp -ka KEYS
+
+ % pgp ${filename}.tar.gz.asc
+
+ or
+
+ % gpg --import KEYS
+
+ % gpg --verify ${filename}.tar.gz.asc
+
+ You can also verify the MD5 signature on the files. A Unix program called md5 or md5sum
is included in many
+ Unix distributions. It is also available as part of {{{http://www.gnu.org/software/coreutils/}GNU
Coreutils}}.
+ Windows users can get binary md5 programs from {{{http://www.fourmilab.ch/md5/}Fourmilab}},

+ {{{http://www.pc-tools.net/win32/freeware/console}PC-Tools}} or {{{http://www.slavasoft.com/fsum/}SlavaSoft}}.
