To install the CLI manually, follow these steps:
Create a folder on your computer’s file system where you want to run the CLI commands; for example:
Download the desired architecture binary; the
azionclibinary file is downloaded into the
Downloadsfolder of the computer’s file system.
|Operating System||Architecture||Azion CLI URL|
Alternatively, you can download it via command line. In the example below, the link refers to the Linux/x86_64 architecture. To use another architecture, change the URL to the desired operating system or architecture with the command below:
curl -O https://downloads.azion.com/linux/x86_64/azion
azionfile, downloaded in the previous step, to the folder created in step 1.
Open the terminal and change the working directory to the folder you created in step 1 by running the
cd <path>command with the path of the
my-clifolder on your computer.
Confirm the existence of the
azionbinary file in the project folder with the
Grant permission to run the
azionbinary on your computer with the following command:
chmod +x azion
If the terminal doesn’t display any messages, it means that the command was executed without errors.
Note: if your computer uses the macOS operating system, it’ll present a window with an error message preventing the execution of the CLI. See the procedure to allow the CLI to run on the macOS operating system, presented later.
- Run the command:
Note: the command below allows you to run
azionfrom any folder on your computer’s file system. You can then delete the
azionfiles in your project directory and the
Downloadsfolder by running the
rm azioncommand in the respective directories.
sudo cp azion /usr/local/bin
This command is optional. In case you didn’t want to run the
sudo cp azion /usr/local/bin command, remember to have a copy of the
azion binary in your project folder and run it with the characters
./ in front, as in
./azion <command>. Otherwise, an error message will be displayed stating that the
azion command wasn’t found.
sudo command asks for the password of the user with computer administrator powers. Enter your password and press the ENTER or RETURN key. Characters aren’t displayed while typing.
Test the CLI installation with the following command; a help screen will appear on the monitor.
If a window with an alert message appears on the screen informing you that the developer can’t be identified, click on the Cancel button. The terminal responds with the following message:
zsh: killed azioncli --help
Then, follow the steps in the Running the CLI on macOS Operating System topic. After releasing the execution, rerun the command
azioncli --help or
azioncli --version to verify that Azion CLI is working normally.
If you use the
azioncli --version command, the response should be similar to the one shown below, or a higher version:
azioncli version 0.46.0
Note: the CLI release process presented above is for the macOS operating system. If you use another operating system, follow the procedures provided in the system’s documentation.
From now on you can run CLI commands. To help you, it has an interactive and integrated help system in order to facilitate its use.
