How To Install Apache Maven on Rocky Linux 9

Install Apache Maven on Rocky Linux 9

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Apache Maven on Rocky Linux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, Apache Maven is an open-source software project management and build a tool that is tailored specifically for Java projects. It is based on the Project Object Model and contains XML files to define configuration details, project dependencies, and other data. It is designed to help Java developers build projects by proficiently documenting and reporting important project-related information.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of Apache Maven on Rocky Linux. 9.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Rocky Linux 9.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.
