# Deploy Cesium
# Deploy Cesium on a web server
## Bash script
> **WARN**: Installing Cesium as a web site is NOT recommended, for security reasons!
> A DNS attack can redirect to another web site (with modified javascript code) in order to retrieve user credentials (wallet secret key)
> We recommend the use of the [web extension](, or the [desktop application](;
> Read [this post]( for details (French).
## First deployment
1. Create the root directory:
cd /var/www/
sudo mkdir cesium
cd cesium
2. Download and unzip:
cd /var/www/cesium
wget -kL https://.../
unzip -o /var/www/cesium
3. Configure Cesium default settings, by editing the file `config.js`;
4. Configure your web engine (e.g. Apache, nginx) to use the root directory, by creating a new `location` or a new `virtualhost`;
Please refer to your engine documentation.
5. Restart your web engine.
That's it !
