After we installed Hadoop in the machine, we then need to install Hive in the second section.
1. Download Hive
Download Hive-0.13.0 from http://hive.apache.org/downloads.html, and unzip and put Hive package together with Hadoop (not necessary to put Hive together with hadoop, but it is easy to manage in the future).
2. Add path to Hive
Add the statements to $HOME/.bashrc to add path
export HIVE_HOME=/ hive/path
3. Make file on Hadoop file system
Make file on hadoop file system for hive database
hadoop fs –mkdir /user/hive/warehouse
hadoop fs –mkdir /temp
4. Config.sh file
Go to hive/bin, find config.sh and add:
export HADOOP_INSTALL= /hadoop/path (the same path as in section 1)
Start hive by typing in “hive” in console, you will see hive cli and do queries with Hiveql.
Notice: the hive default metadata is stored by Derby. You can only access to you previous database from the same location where you start hive last time. Otherwise, you would not be able to see your previous database. Also, hive will create metastore_db and a log file anywhere you start hive. To fix it, you may set the hive metastore with mysql. I will write this instruction later.
