Installing the Wazuh server using the assisted installation method

Install the Wazuh server as a single-node or multi-node cluster using the assisted installation method. The Wazuh server analyzes the data received from the agents triggering alerts when it detects threats and anomalies. This central component includes the Wazuh manager and Filebeat.

Wazuh server cluster installation

  1. Download the Wazuh installation assistant.

    # curl -sO
  2. Run the Wazuh installation assistant with the option --wazuh-server followed by the node name to install the Wazuh server. The node name must be the same one used in config.yml for the initial configuration, for example, wazuh-1.


    Make sure that a copy of the wazuh-install-files.tar, created during the initial configuration step, is placed in your working directory.

    # bash --wazuh-server wazuh-1

Your Wazuh server is now successfully installed.
