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.

Manual

If you don't have access to the command line or would rather do things manually, you can download the static bundle manually as a zip or tar file from our releases page.

Zip File

# Get the zip file from GitHub
wget https://github.com/directus/directus/archive/master.zip

# Decompress the file
unzip master.zip

Tar File

# Get the zip file from GitHub
wget https://github.com/directus/directus/archive/master.tar.gz

# Decompress the file
tar -xzf master.tar.gz

Using FTP

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.

Standalone

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.

Source

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.

Docker
