To install Hub with a ZIP distribution:

  1. Download the ZIP distribution from the JetBrains website.
  2. Create a directory on your server to use as the home directory for Hub. Extract the files from the ZIP archive and select this directory as the destination folder.
  3. In a command-line interface, change the directory to <Hub home directory>/bin.
  4. Enter the command ./hub.sh run.

    If you do not have a web browser installed on the host machine, enter ./hub.sh run --no-browser.

  5. Continue with the installation in the web-based Configuration Wizard.
    • If you have a browser installed on the host machine, the Configuration Wizard opens automatically.
    • If you do not have a web browser installed on the host machine, open the URL of the wizard in a web browser on another workstation. The wizard URL is printed in the console output:
      JetBrains Hub <version> will be available on [<Hub Base URL>/bundle/starting] after start
