While going through the following instructions:

curl -O http://static.druid.io/artifacts/releases/druid-latest-bin.tar.gz
tar -xzf druid-latest-bin.tar.gz
cd druid-latest

I received the following error:

gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

Then I tried:

file druid-latest-bin.tar.gz

and I get back:

HTML document, ASCII text

What should I do to download the file correctly (to be able to unzip)?

  • I think it should be tar -zxf druid-latest-bin.tar.gz – George Udosen Apr 28 '17 at 18:06
  • To me seems that your link does not exist, thats why you get HTML document, cause you've downloaded a html file. – Ravexina Apr 28 '17 at 18:06
  • @George Trying -zxf gives back the following:tar (child): druid-latest-bin.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now tar: Child returned status 2 tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now – Minoo Apr 28 '17 at 18:11
  • Then the link might not be valid – George Udosen Apr 28 '17 at 18:13
  • See if there is an error message in the HTML file: less druid-latest-bin.tar.gz – waltinator Apr 28 '17 at 22:42

Your link is broken, use this command instead:

curl -O http://static.druid.io/artifacts/releases/druid-0.10.0-bin.tar.gz
tar -xzf druid-0.10.0-bin.tar.gz
cd druid-*

and follow other instructions.
