# Manual deployment

If you want to deploy Kestra on yourself (within your own environment), we provide a standalone JAR that allows deployment on any environment you have (with an installed JVM).

The latest JAR can be downloaded here (opens new window).

This is an executable JAR:

  • For Linux & MacOs, run it with ./kestra-VERSION <command>.
  • For Windows, rename the file ./kestra-VERSION to ./kestra-VERSION.bat, and run it from CMD.

For example, to launch Kestra in standalone mode you will run ./kestra-VERSION server standalone.

More information on Kestra commands can be found in Kestra servers documentation.

# Configuration

You must configure Kestra inside the default ~/.kestra/config.yml YAML file or use the -c or --config option to point to another file.
