Installation from GIT
The latest, bleeding edge Cherokee release can always be retrieved via
GIT. Note that this is the development release and could very well be
unstable. In general it is not recommended to run this release in
production environments.
Clonning the sourcess
To check out the sources for the first time from the repository, use this command:
git clone -b dev --recursive
Updating the sources
To update your sources every day, you use this command:
git pull -u
Compiling and installing
Once you have downloaded the latest GIT head, you will need to
follow the installation instructions for your specific platform.
Note that some of the files present in the tarball are not present in
GIT. Most noticeably, the file `./configure` that will be needed for the
installation process.
To generate the missing files simply run this command:
As optional parameters, you can specify any option you want passed
to `./configure`. This way you can avoid issuing another command for
the configuration.
For instance, this line will configure your local copy with the four
specified parameters:
./ --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc \
--localstatedir=/var --enable-trace
You would then be ready to proceed with the standard compilation
process for your platform:

* link:basics_installation_windows.html[Windows installation]
