Answer

Your hadoop should be in running condition. untar the downloaded hive and give the permission to the directory. Go to the hive/conf directory. Make hive-env.sh.template file to hive-env.sh and hive-default.xml.template file to hive-site.xml. Open hive-evn.sh and set JAVA_HOME in hive-env.sh and HADOOP_HOME and also set the hive path by.

export HIVE_HOME=/usr/local/hive

then open hive terminal by

hive

by default hive takes Derby database, if it gives error of metastore at the time of create table, go to metastore/metastore_db and delete the *.lck files.

Add the JAVA_HOME, HADOOP_HOME, HIVE_HOME in .bashrc or .bash_profile.

$cd ~
$vi .bashrc

paste following to the end of the file



#Hadoop variables
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/jdk/
export PATH=$PATH:$JAVA_HOME/bin
export HADOOP_HOME=/usr/local/hadoop
export PATH=$PATH:$HADOOP_INSTALL/bin
export PATH=$PATH:$HADOOP_INSTALL/sbin
export HADOOP_MAPRED_HOME=$HADOOP_INSTALL
export HADOOP_COMMON_HOME=$HADOOP_INSTALL
export HADOOP_HDFS_HOME=$HADOOP_INSTALL
export YARN_HOME=$HADOOP_INSTALL
export HIVE_HOME=/usr/local/hive
export PATH=$PATH:$HIVE_HOME/bin
