Debian 6+/Ubuntu 10.04+

Prerequisites
RStudio Server v0.98 requires Debian version 6 (or higher) or Ubuntu version 10.04 (or higher).

Installing R
RStudio requires a previous installation of R version 2.11.1 or higher. To install the latest version of R you should first add the CRAN repository to your system as described here:

You can then install R using the following command:

$ sudo apt-get install r-base

 

NOTE: if you do not add the CRAN Debian or Ubuntu repository as described above this command will install the version of R corresponding to your current system version. Since this version of R may be a year or two old it is strongly recommended that you add the CRAN repositories so you can run the most up to date version of R.

Additional Prerequisites for Debian 7
If you are running Debian 7 (as opposed to an earlier version of Debian or Ubuntu) then you’ll also need to install OpenSSL version 0.9.8 prior to installing RStudio Server. See these instructions for installing OpenSSL v0.9.8 on Debian 7 for more details.

Download and Install
To download and install RStudio Server open a terminal window and execute the following commands (corresponding to the 32 or 64-bit version as appropriate). Note that the gdebi-core package is installed first so that gdebi can be used to install RStudio and all of its dependencies. Also note that the libapparmor1 dependency is required for Ubuntu only, not Debian.

Red Hat/CentOS 5.4+

Prerequisites
RStudio Server v0.98 requires RedHat or CentOS version 5.4 (or higher).

RStudio Server has several dependencies on packages (including R itself) found in the Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) repository. If you don’t already have this repository available you should add it to your system using the instructions found on the Fedora EPEL website.

After enabling EPEL you should then ensure that you have installed the version of R available from EPEL. You can do this using the following command:

$ sudo yum install R

 

Download and Install

To install RStudio on other platforms you will need to build and install from source. Note that while it is likely that RStudio will correctly compile and install on your target platform the only platforms currently tested and certified are Debian, Ubuntu, and RedHat/CentOS.

A tarball containing source code for RStudio v0.98.507 can be downloaded from here.

The INSTALL file within the source distribution contains additional instructions on how to build and install from source. After successfully performing a make install you should also be sure to install the additional scripts and configuration files found within the src/server/extras directory (the INSTALL file describes these extras in more detail).
