This page guides you through installing Kong Gateway in traditional mode, where it acts as both the control plane and data plane. Running in this mode may have a small performance impact.
We recommend using Konnect as your control plane to allow your data plane to run at maximum performance and decrease your deployment complexity.
Note: In July of 2023 Kong announced that package hosting was shifting from https://download.konghq.com to https://packages.konghq.com. Read more about it in this blog post!
