Kong is one of my favourite projects, I do like it and keep pushing my current company and most of who I know to use it. So today I’ll talk about installing version 0.10.x and how to run it automatically via SystemD on Ubuntu 16.04.
Let’s talk about installing Kong, basically, we have two steps:
$ mkdir src
$ cd src
$ wget -c https://github.com/Mashape/kong/releases/download/0.10.3/kong-0.10.3.xenial_all.deb
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install openssl libpcre3 procps perl
$ sudo dpkg -i kong-0.10.3.*.deb
This will install Kong correctly on your server successfully.
