Installing and configuring Hadoop
We will consider Hadoop installation using two methods: using a TAR file on Ubuntu and using the
.rpm file on Red Hat distros. We will have a basic, running Hadoop cluster, and then we will set up an HBase cluster in detail. Execute the following steps:
- Download Hadoop v2, the stable version of which is available at http://www.webhostingjams.com/mirror/. If you want a version other than the one we use here, you can always visit http://www.webhostingjams.com/mirror/apache/hadoop/common/ and download the version that you want to install.
- We can download Hadoop using the
wgetcommand, as follows:
