Other Installation Methods
If you don't have access to the command line or are looking for other ways to install Directus you can browse the alternate methods below.
# Get the zip file from GitHub wget https://github.com/directus/directus/archive/master.zip # Decompress the file unzip master.zip
# Get the zip file from GitHub wget https://github.com/directus/directus/archive/master.tar.gz # Decompress the file tar -xzf master.tar.gz
If you don't have access to the command line then you'll need to decompress the files on your local computer before uploading to the remote server, though this will take much longer.
If you prefer, you can choose to only install the Directus API, or only install the Directus App. This is useful for multitenancy, such as when you need many instances of the API but only one App to manage them all.
If you would like to extend or make contributions to the core codebase then you can install Directus from Source. This process involves more steps, so we recommend using the combined build for normal usage.
