Now, we will learn the necessary steps to install a Mosquitto server on the most popular operating systems: Linux, macOS, and Windows.
It is extremely important to work with the latest available Mosquitto versions to make sure that many security vulnerabilities discovered in previous versions are addressed. For example, Mosquitto 1.4.15 addressed two important security vulnerabilities that affected versions 1.0 to 1.4.14 inclusive.
