Installing hitch

hitch requires:

libev >= 4
openssl (recent, >=1.0.0 recommended)

hitch currently works on Linux, OpenBSD, FreeBSD, and MacOSX. It has been tested the most heavily on Linux/x86_64.

Installing from source

Install prerequisites on Debian based systems:

$ sudo apt-get install libev-dev libssl-dev automake python-docutils flex bison pkg-config

To install hitch:

$ ./bootstrap   # if running from git
$ ./configure
$ make
$ sudo make install

This will install Hitch to /usr/local/, unless you override the destination with ./configure --prefix=/foo (as usual)

Installing from packages


From packages:

$ pkg install hitch

From ports:

$ cd /usr/ports/security/hitch && make install clean

Init scripts

Initialization scripts to start hitch automatically can be found in the wiki.
