Obtaining and Verifying an Installation Package

To prevent network security threats caused by malicious tampering or damage during installation package transfer, verify the integrity of an installation package after obtaining it. Deployment can be started only after the package passes the verification.


You have obtained the openGauss installation package and the signature file. The two must be saved in the same directory, and each package corresponds to a verification file. The signature file is released together with the corresponding software package in .sha256 format. Generally, the file name is the same as the package name. If the name of the installation package is openGauss-x.x.x.x-openEuler-64bit.tar.gz, the name of the verification file corresponding to this package is openGauss-x.x.x.x-openEuler-64bit.tar.gz.sha256.


  1. Download the installation package of the corresponding platform from the openGauss community.

    1. Log in to the openGauss community.
    2. Click Download.
    3. Decompress the downloaded package.
  2. Verify the installation package.

    1. Decompress the installation package and check whether the installation directory and files are complete. Run the following commands in the directory where the installation package is stored:

      tar -zxvf openGauss-x.x.x-openEuler-64bit.tar.gz
      ls -1

      Run the ls command and information similar to the following is displayed. openGauss-x.x.x-openEuler-64bit.tar.gz in the packages directory indicates the database installation package. During the openGauss-x.x.x installation process, SHA256 authentication is automatically performed for the database installation program.

    2. Go to the scripts directory, start the openGauss installation, and observe whether the installation is successful.

      During the installation, the installation package automatically uses the SHA256 file to verify the integrity of the installation program.

      If information similar to the following is displayed, verification of the database installation package fails, causing the openGauss installation failure.

      Error: The sha256 value is different!
      Bin file a4ebce0b6052723b1f386928e4d820fa2
      sha256 file 4ebce0b6052723b1f386928e4d820fa2

      If no error is displayed, the installation program is correct and has not been illegally modified.
