Installing Presto Admin#
If you are using the online installer then make sure you’ve installed the Python development package for your system. For RedHat/Centos that package is
python2-develand for Debian/Ubuntu it is
Presto Admin is packaged as an offline installer –
prestoadmin-<version>-offline.tar.gz – and as an online
The offline installer includes all of the dependencies for
presto-admin, so it can be used on a cluster without an outside
network connection. The offline installer is currently only supported
on RedHat Linux 6.x or CentOS equivalent.
The online installer downloads all of the dependencies when you run
./install-prestoadmin.sh. You must use the online installer for
installation of Presto on Amazon EMR and for use on any operating
system not listed above. If you are using presto-admin on an
unsupported operating system, there may be operating system
dependencies beyond the installation process, and presto-admin may not
1. Download an offline installer from releases page.
2. Copy the installer
prestoadmin-<version>-offline.tar.gz to the
location where you want
presto-admin to run.
presto-admin does not have to be on the same node(s)
where Presto will run, though it does need to have SSH access to all
of the nodes in the cluster.
For Amazon EMR, use the online installer instead of the offline installer.
3. Extract and run the installation script from within the
$ tar xvf prestoadmin-<version>-offline.tar.gz $ cd prestoadmin $ ./install-prestoadmin.sh
The installation script will create a
presto-admin-install directory and an
presto-admin script. By default, the
presto-admin config and
log directory locations are configured to be
~/.prestoadmin/log, respectively. This can be changed by modifying the
environment variables, PRESTO_ADMIN_CONFIG_DIR and PRESTO_ADMIN_LOG_DIR.
The installation script will also create the directories pointed to by
PRESTO_ADMIN_CONFIG_DIR and PRESTO_ADMIN_LOG_DIR. If those directories
already exist, the installation script will not erase their contents.
4. Verify that
presto-admin was installed properly by running the following
$ ./presto-admin --help
Please note that you should only run one
presto-admin command on your
cluster at a time.
