Install RethinkDB 1.15.0 on Ubuntu 14.04 & Ubuntu 14.10

source /etc/lsb-release && echo "deb $DISTRIB_CODENAME main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/rethinkdb.list

wget -qO- | sudo apt-key add -

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install rethinkdb

– Note that RethinkDB does not ship with a default config file, so after installation, RethinkDB will not automatically be run on system startup until you add a config file to /etc/rethinkdb/instances.d/. Copy the the example config file and restart the init.d script:

sudo cp /etc/rethinkdb/default.conf.sample /etc/rethinkdb/instances.d/instance1.conf

sudo /etc/init.d/rethinkdb restart
