The following steps are an overview of how to manually install and run Mango.

  1. Download and install Java JDK, see Installing Java for more details.
  2. If you use Linux or Mac you can use the install script to download and install Mango.
  3. Download the Mango full zip file.
  4. Extract the zip file into a directory of your choice (e.g. /opt/mango or C:\mango).
  5. Set the mango_paths_home environment variable to the path where you installed Mango (recommended but not required).
  6. Edit mango.properties to suit your configuration, see installation configuration for more details.
  7. Start Mango by running $mango_paths_home/bin/start-mango.sh (Linux and Mac) or %mango_paths_home%\bin\mango.cmd (Windows) from your terminal / command prompt window respectively.
