  1. Find the latest version of Anaconda

    Visit the Anaconda Distributions page. Go to the Anaconda Archive if you would like to view all available versions. Find the latest Linux version and copy the installer bash script.

  2. Download the Anaconda using bash commands

    On your server, change your directory to /tmp and download the bash script to /tmp folder.

    cd /tmp
    curl -O https://repo.anaconda.com/archive/Anaconda3-<2022.05>-Linux-x86_64.sh

    Remember to remove the ‘<’ and ‘>’ characters on all of the commands and change the <2022.05> to the latest version.

  3. Verify the integrity of the installer

    sha256sum Anaconda3-<2022.05>-Linux-x86_64.sh
  4. Run the installer script and complete installation
    bash Anaconda3-<2022.05>-Linux-x86_64.sh
  5. Use ~/.bashrc to install it to your PATH

    Once installation is complete, you’ll receive the following output:

    installation finished.
    Do you wish the installer to prepend the Anaconda3 install location
    to PATH in your ~/.bashrc ? [yes|no]
    [no] >>>

    Type yes.

  6. Activate installation

    source ~/.bashrc
  7. Test installation

    Test the installation by listing the packages.

    conda list
