    Installing GoCD server on Mac OS X

    • Download the Mac OS X installer for GoCD Server from downloads page.

    • Unzip the installer in a directory of your choice. It creates a sub-directory with the name go-server-${version}.

    • Mark the directory as not quarantined by Mac OS X so that it allows the GoCD Server to be started:

      # Assuming, for example, that the directory is "go-server-20.5.0".
      $ cd go-server-20.5.0
      $ xattr -d -r .
      xattr: [Errno 13] Permission denied: './jre/Contents/Home/lib/server/classes.jsa'
      xattr: [Errno 13] Permission denied: './jre/Contents/Home/legal/jdk.dynalink/'
      ... # These "Permission denied" warnings can be ignored.
