Apache Traffic Server
Traffic Server is a high-performance building block for cloud services.
It's more than just a caching proxy server; it also has support for
plugins to build large scale web applications.

2. REQUIREMENTS
This section outlines build requirements for different OS
distributions. This may be out of date compared to the on-line
requirements at
<https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/TS/Building>.
Fedora 11,12, 13, 14, 15:
autoconf
automake
pkgconfig
libtool
gcc-c++

flex (optional)
hwloc-devel (optional)
lua-devel (optional)
Fedora 8 EC2 (Kernel: 2.6.21.7-2.ec2.v1.2.fc8xen):
FC8 on EC2 requires unique configure declarations, please see that section
below.
NOTE: Alternately you may use the install scripts in 'contrib' which
automate this or use the pre-built public Fedora Core 8 EC2 AMI
with ATS installed. Both of which are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
See 'README-EC2' for further details.
Install these packages:
autoconf
automake
pkgconfig
libtool
gcc-c++
glibc-devel
openssl-devel
tcl-devel
expat-devel
pcre
Ubuntu 8.* ,9.*, 10.*, 11.*:
autoconf
automake
pkg-config
libtool
g++
libssl-dev
tcl-dev
expat
libexpat-dev
libpcre3-dev
libcap-dev
flex (optional)
libhwloc-dev (optional)
liblua5.1-dev or libluajit-5.1-dev (optional)
Ubuntu EC2 9.10:
NOTE: Alternately you may use the install scripts in 'contrib' which
automate this or use the pre-built public Ubuntu EC2 AMI with
ATS installed. Both of which are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
See 'README-EC2' for further details.
Install these packages:

packages either from ports or via pkg_add or pkgng:
devel/gmake
devel/autoconf
devel/automake
devel/pkgconf
devel/libtool
lang/tcl85
textproc/expat (or expat2)
security/openssl
devel/pcre
textproc/flex (optional, install newer version from ports, fix PATH)
devel/hwloc (optional)
lang/lua (optional, on x64 don't use LuaJIT!)
OpenSolaris osol0906:
GCC 4.3.2 compiler suite (dev collection)
autoconf
automake
pkgconfig
libtool
tcl
expat
openssl
pcre
OSX 10.5:
GCC 4.2.4 compiler suite (ports collection)

pkgconfig
libtool
tcl
expat
openssl
pcre
3. Building from distribution
You can download the latest source code from the official Apache Traffic
Server site:
http://trafficserver.apache.org/downloads
(or via the URL shortener: http://s.apache.org/uG). Once downloaded,
follow the instructions:
tar xf trafficserver-2.1.8-unstable.tar.bz2
cd trafficserver-2.1.8-unstable
./configure # configure the build environment to create Makefiles
make # execute the compile
This will build with a destination prefix of /usr/local. You can finish
the installation with
sudo make install
4. BUILDING FROM GIT REPO
mkdir -p ~/dev # make yourself a development dir
cd ~/dev # enter your development dir
git clone ... # get the source code from ASF Git repo
cd trafficserver # enter the checkout dir
autoreconf -i # generate the configure script and Makefile.in files
./configure # configure the build environment to create Makefiles
make # execute the compile
4b. Instructions for building on EC2
NOTE: Alternately you may use the scripts under 'contrib' which will
automate the install for trafficserver under EC2 which is
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. See 'README-EC2' for further details.
# As root do the following when using Ubuntu
mkdir -p /mnt #EC2 Storage Mount, where storage is located
cd /mnt
git clone ... # get the source code from ASF Git repo
cd trafficserver # enter the checkout dir
autoreconf -i --force # generate the configure script and Makefile.in files
./configure
make
# As root do the following when using Fedora Core 8 kernel
mkdir -p /mnt #EC2 Storage Mount, where storage is located
cd /mnt
git clone ... # get the source code from ASF Git repo
cd trafficserver # enter the checkout dir
autoreconf -i --force # generate the configure script and Makefile.in files
./configure --disable-eventfd
make
4c. Instructions for building on FreeBSD
The only difference is how to run configure and make:
MAKE=gmake ./configure # make sure that gmake is the make we use
gmake
5. INSTALLATION
DEFAULT DIR CONTENTS
/usr/local/var/log/trafficserver log files created at runtime
/usr/local/var/trafficserver runtime files
/usr/local/etc/trafficserver configuration files
/usr/local/bin executable binaries
/usr/local/libexec/trafficserver plugins
6. CRYPTO NOTICE
