Newbie, trying to install Nexus 2.14.8 on Windows 10


#1

hello, first time installer. I’m trying to install nexus OSS 2.14.8 for Windows 10. I download the ZIP file nexus-2.14.8-01-bundle.zip unzip it, it has a nexus and a nexus.bat under ./bin. everything I read says to install using nexus.exe /install for windows. I’m not sure if I have the correct archive. is it that I install using the nexus.bat script? I looked inside the nexus script and it is a Unix script.

what and how do I install nexus OSS 2 for Windows?

thank you

I think I figured it out. under the install base directory cd to bin, then cd to jsw. under jsw is a selection of install windows scripts based on architecture. select the architecture best suited and run the install . bat script. it automatically created the application as a Windows service. start the service.

if you need to change the default port it runs on, go to the base install dir, cd to conf, edit the nexus.properties. restart the service.

thanks!
