See the CKAN Documentation for installation instructions.


If you need help with CKAN or want to ask a question, use either the ckan-dev mailing list, the CKAN chat on Gitter, or the CKAN tag on Stack Overflow (try searching the Stack Overflow and ckan-dev archives for an answer to your question first).

If you’ve found a bug in CKAN, open a new issue on CKAN’s GitHub Issues (try searching first to see if there’s already an issue for your bug).

If you find a potential security vulnerability please email, rather than creating a public issue on GitHub.
