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.

These are the steps you will need to follow:

  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.
