Installing the CSS Module¶
The CSS module is built nightly and published to the nightly build server. Click on your version of Geoserver - eg. 2.1.x and then community-latest.
The installation process is similar to other GeoServer plugins:
- Download the file named like geoserver-2.1-SNAPSHOT-css-plugin.zip. Please verify that the version number in the filename corresponds to the one reported in GeoServer’s admin UI.
- Extract the contents of the ZIP archive into the /WEB-INF/lib/ direcotry in the GeoServer webapp. For example, if you have installed the GeoServer binary to /opt/geoserver-2.1.0/, you should place the CSS extension’s JAR files in /opt/geoserver-2.1.0/webapps/geoserver/WEB-INF/lib/.
- After extracting the extension, restart GeoServer in order for the changes to take effect. All further configuration can be done through the GeoServer web UI.
