This document is a guide to getting up and running with Fedora as quickly as possible.

Out of the box

If you are looking for scripted deployments, please take a look at Fedora's deployment tooling.

System Requirements

  • Java 8

    java -version
    java version "1.8.0_05"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_05-b13)
    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.5-b02, mixed mode)

Installation

There are two primary ways of deploying Fedora 4. The first, One-Click Run, is an easy way to get Fedora 4 running to test out the basic features. The second, Servlet Container Install, is the approach to be used in production installations.

One-Click Run

  1. Download the latest executable webapp "one-click-run" from downloads
  2. Either double-click on the download, or run the following command to start Fedora 4

    java -jar fcrepo-webapp-<version>-jetty-console.jar
  3. Once Fedora 4 is seen to be running at the following URL, start exploring the feature tour

    http://localhost:8080/rest/

    Note, port 8080 is the default. Replace that port number in the above URL if you used a different value.

Alternatively, instead of deploying Fedora 4 via the "one-click run", the Fedora 4 web-application can be installed by dropping the WAR file into a servlet 3 container, such as Tomcat 7 or Jetty 8.
For details on installing Fedora 4 to those containers, see the Deploying Fedora 4 Complete Guide guide.

Next Steps

Once Fedora 4 is running,
