To install HammerDB on Linux you have the option of using the self-extracting installer or a tar.gz file. The self-extracting installer will create an uninstall executable for you. A tar.gz installation can be deleted manually. In both cases the install is entirely self-contained within the installation directory.
To install from the self-extracting installer using a graphical environment refer to the previous section on the self-extracting installer for Windows, the installation method is the same.
To install from the tar.gz run the command
tar -zxvf HammerDB-4.8.tar.gz
This will extract HammerDB into a directory named HammerDB-4.7.
To start HammerDB change to the HammerDB directory and run locally as follows.
