Consult the official C4CorpusTools documentation which contains

  • C4Corpus Users's Guide
    • How to access C4Corpus at S3
    • Running boilerplate removal outside Hadoop
    • Examples of simple search in C4Corpus
  • C4Corpus Developers's Guide
    • How to run the full processing pipeline on CommonCrawl
  • Corpus statistics reported in the LREC article

As of May 2017, thanks to CommonCrawl the C4Corpus is hosted at their S3 bucket. This makes it much easier to access the data using HTTP (see the documentation).
