Unpacking the Distribution Archives Non-Destructively
The distribution archives are designed to be unpacked from the command line such that it will not replace or overwrite any existing files in the directory it resides in, but will create any missing files.
- As the user account that will eventually run Nexus, download or copy the bundle into the Nexus Installation Directory
Extract the archive using a command specific to your bundle format.
Examples using the Nexus Repository Manager 3.1.0-04 distributions:
tar xzf nexus-installer-3.1.0-04-unix.tar.gz
tar xzf nexus-installer-3.1.0-04-mac.tgz
7za.exe e nexus-installer-3.1.0-04-win64.zip
Extracting the archive will populate a Nexus Application Directory and the parent of the default Data Directory.
Refer to the book for more information about the repository manager directories and files.
