Cassandra will run on both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems, with 32-bit or 64-bit Java. The 64-bit versions are preferred.
- Download the latest stable 2.2.5 or 3.9 release of Cassandra from
- Download Commons Daemon from http://www.apache.org/dist/commons/daemon/binaries/. This tool allows Cassandra to be run as a service/daemon.
TipIf running Windows, make sure you download the Windows archive! The archive should contain 32-bit prunsrv.exe. The 64-bit version will be found in the appropriate subdirectory, either amd64 or ia64. Also, currently, versions 1.0.14 and older work correctly, but version 1.0.15 fails to properly stop the service.
- Install JDK/JRE 8 - Preferably the most stable version available.
- Install Python version 2.7.10 – which is required by CQLSH.
