Prepare your database
If you are using PostgreSQL, please provision a database and a user before starting Kong, ie:
CREATE USER kong; CREATE DATABASE kong OWNER kong;
Now, run the Kong migrations:
$ kong migrations bootstrap [-c /path/to/kong.conf]
Note for Kong < 0.15: with Kong versions below 0.15 (up to 0.14), use the
upsub-command instead of
bootstrap. Also note that with Kong < 0.15, migrations should never be run concurrently; only one Kong node should be performing migrations at a time. This limitation is lifted for Kong 0.15, 1.0, and above.
$ kong start [-c /path/to/kong.conf]
Kong is running:
$ curl -i http://localhost:8001/
