Packages


Installation

  1. Install Kong

    Use the Homebrew package manager to add Kong as a tap and install it:

    $ brew tap mashape/kong
    $ brew install kong
    
  2. Prepare your database

    Configure Kong so it can connect to your database. Kong supports both PostgreSQL 9.4+ and Cassandra 3.x.x as its datastore.

    If you are using Postgres, please provision a database and a user before starting Kong, ie:

    CREATE USER kong; CREATE DATABASE kong OWNER kong;
    

    Now, run the Kong migrations:

    $ kong migrations up [-c /path/to/kong.conf]
    

    Note: migrations should never be run concurrently; only one Kong nodes should be performing migrations at a time.

  3. Start Kong

    $ kong start [-c /path/to/kong.conf]
    
  4. Use Kong

    Kong is running:

    $ curl -i http://localhost:8001/
