Install the Policy Manager under MacOS X
This topic describes how to install the Layer7 API Gateway Policy Manager on an Apple Mac computer running MacOS X for a single user.
To install the Policy Manager on your MacOS X machine:
- Log into your Mac with your user name and password.
- Open the Terminal application and locate and unzip the GEN000000000####.zip file. This file contains the required Manager-.tar.gz file.
- Unpack and uncompress the Manager-<version>.tar.gz file into the "$HOME/securespan" installation directory by typing the following commands:# mkdir $HOME/securespan # cd $HOME/securespan # tar -xzvf -- /<directory>/Manager-<version>.tar.gz # cd ~The last command returns you to the default directory. It is recommended that you create and unpack the installation files into the "/$HOME/securespan/" directory. If you choose to use a different directory, then replace the "/$HOME/securespan" path with your chosen directory path in the command line. If you choose to create a different directory, then do so before using the command line. Unpacking the tarball signifies your acceptance of the terms and conditions in the License Agreement.
- The installation files appear in the target directory. Start the Policy Manager with the following command:# $HOME/securespan/Manager-/sh Manager.sh
