1. Download Cassandra from
2. Extract Cassandra to a directory of your choice (I used c:\development\cassandra)
3. Set the following environment variables
JAVA_HOME (To the directory where you install the JRE, this should not be the bin directory)
CASSANDRA_HOME (To the directory you extracted the files to in step 1)
4. Modify your Cassandra config file as you like and don’t forget to update the directory locations from a UNIX like path to something on your windows directory (in my example the config file is located at c:\development\cassandra\conf\storage-conf.xml)
5. Open cmd and run the cassandra.bat file (in my example the batch file is located at c:\development\cassandra\bin\cassandra.bat)
cd c:\development\cassandra\bin\
6. You can verify that Cassandra is running, by trying to connect to the server. To do this open a new cmd and run the cassandra-cli.bat file from the bin directory.
cd c:\development\cassandra\bin\
- connect localhost/9160
+ connect localhost/9160
