  1. Extract the files from the archive. If you have not extracted a .tar.gz archive before, the steps below outline a common method:

    • First, create a folder in the same directory as the downloaded archive that you want to extract the files to.

    • Next, open a Terminal window and change the directory to the download location (for example, cd Downloads).

    • Finally, run this command to extract the archive into the folder you created (in this example, it is called CDataSync): tar -xvzf CDataSync.tar.gz -C CDataSync.

  2. Move the folder that contains the extracted files to your desired location on disk.

  3. Follow the steps in Starting the Server for options around starting the application.
