# Installing Elixir On Any Distribution
The Elixir documentation does a better job in providing a detailed way of installing Elixir in any distributions(Mac Os, Windows and Linux). please visit the link Elixir Docs and follow every instruction. Also feel free to contact me @dev_olly on twitter for any support.
# Confirming Installation
open your terminal and input the following command
~$ elixir -v Erlang/OTP 22 [erts-10.6.4] [source] [64-bit] [smp:8:8] [ds:8:8:10] [async-threads:1] [hipe] Elixir 1.10.2 (compiled with Erlang/OTP 21)
if you get that response, then yes, elixir has been installed on your system, Hurray. If you dont, please send a DM @dev_olly on twitter or send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for reading.
