Customer-hosted installation steps

This page explains how to install Looker for a customer-hosted Looker deployment. Looker also offers a hosted option.

Hosting the Looker application is independent of where your data resides; data always remains in-database and is not copied to the Looker instance.

Complete the following steps:

  1. Install Looker:

  2. Enable secure database access.

  3. Configure your database for Looker.

  4. Connect Looker to your database.

  5. Test your database connectivity.

  6. Configure Looker sign-in options.

Once your instance is set up, you're ready to get started with development.
