FreeBSD port for riak

This is a testing place for a FreeBSD port for riak. Riak is not currently in the FreeBSD ports tree. The goal of this project is to get a working port to submit to the ports tree.


  • Copy the riak folder to /usr/ports/database/

  • cd to /usr/ports/database/riak/

  • make


  • cd work/riak-1.0.1/rel/riak/

  • ./bin/riak chkconfig

  • ./bin/riak start

  • ./bin/riak-admin member_status


This is currently a test to see if i could get it up and running. It does not currently install into your main FreeBSD install.


  • create rc.d script to managing the riak server

  • configure port to install files to FreeBSD appropriate locations.

  • configure port to cleanup all installed files
