Download tar.gz for tyk 2.x?

Hi !

We are currently using Tyk Gateway 1.7 and want to upgrade to 2.X. Unfortunately we are required to install our application in non-standard places.

Where can we found a tar.gz for the new release ?

Thank you !

We’ve actually stopped doing tar.gz releases of Tyk, but the nightlies are tar.gz

Thanks for the reply even if it’s a little disappointing !

I don’t think that I will be allowed to install a nightly in production :yum:


You aren;t allowed to use Deb or RPM packages, our RPMs are signed?

We are not allowed to install things under /usr, /opt and /var unfortunately.

The tar.gz was very usefull in that case.

I see… In that case we’ll start making them available again in future, because that is quite the constraint :slight_smile:

You could pull our DEB file (without installing it) and unpack it:

mkdir ~/temp
dpkg -x somepackage.deb ~/temp/ 

That would be great and thanks for the workaround will try it !

Just in case someone need it this is what I’ve done (on CentOS7):

Add the following in /etc/yum.repos.d/tyk.repo


Download the rpm:

yum install --downloadonly --downloaddir=/tmp/tyk/ tyk-gateway

Decompress the rpm:

rpm2cpio tyk-gateway- | cpio -idmv

By the way I think that you have an issue in your packaging scripts Martin, I found the .deb into the rpm package (in ./opt/tyk-gateway/tyk-gateway_2.1.0.2_amd64.deb)

Eek! Thanks for letting us know - we’ll see what’s going on with the rpm build!
