## Download
Choose the file matching your platform from the [downloads page](https://dl.gitea.io/gitea/), copy the URL and replace the URL within the commands below:
You can find the file matching your platform from the [downloads page](https://dl.gitea.io/gitea/) after navigating to the version you want to download.
### Choosing the right file
**For Linux**, you will likely want `linux-amd64`. It's for 64-bit Intel/AMD platforms, but there are other platforms available, including `arm64` (e.g. Raspberry PI 4), `386` (i.e. 32-bit), `arm-5`, and `arm-6`.
**For Windows**, you will likely want `windows-4.0-amd64`. It's for all modern versions of Windows, but there is also a `386` platform available designed for older, 32-bit versions of Windows.
*Note: there is also a `gogit-windows` file available that was created to help with some [performance problems](https://github.com/go-gitea/gitea/pull/15482) reported by some Windows users on older systems/versions. You should consider using this file if you're experiencing performance issues, and let us know if it improves performance.*
**For macOS**, you should choose `darwin-arm64` if your hardware uses Apple Silicon, or `darwin-amd64` for Intel.
### Downloading with wget
Copy the commands below and replace the URL within the one you wish to download.
```sh
wget -O gitea https://dl.gitea.io/gitea/{{< version >}}/gitea-{{< version >}}-linux-amd64
chmod +x gitea
```
Note that the above command will download Gitea {{< version >}} for 64-bit Linux.
## Verify GPG signature
Gitea signs all binaries with a [GPG key](https://keys.openpgp.org/search?q=teabot%40gitea.io) to prevent against unwanted modification of binaries.
