I am trying to install geoserver 2.5.1 on my Mac (OSX 10.9.3) but i am getting the error “GeoServer.app” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Trash.

Can you pls help?


You have to enable a security setting before you install Geoserver at Mac OSX:

On Mac OSX:

  • Open System Preferences
  • Go to Security & Privacy
  • Select the General tab
  • Enable Anywhere under Allow Application Downloads from: (open the lock before)

-> After that you can install/open Geoserver

(Testet with Geoserver 2.5.1 / OSX 10.9.3)
