Download TeamCity from the following location, making sure that you click on the blue “Get TeamCity 8.0 Now” button on the Mac OS X tab:

When the download has completed, extract the TeamCity-8.0.6.tar.gz as follows:

cd /Local
mkdir TeamCity-8.0.6
cd TeamCity-8.0.6
tar xvzf ~/Downloads/TeamCity-8.0.6.tar.gz

Finally, to make things easier when updating the TeamCity version in the future, we will create a symbolic link:

cd /Local
rm -f TeamCity
ln -s TeamCity-8.0.6 TeamCity

Now, we can set up TeamCity to start when the Mac boots up. Open TextWrangler and create a new file with the following contents:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "">
<plist version="1.0">




Save the file here:

Now, type the following command to make sure it has the correct owner:
cd /Library/LaunchDaemons
sudo chown root:wheel com.jetbrains.teamcity.plist
