This Confluence wiki site, maintained by DuraSpace prior to the recent merger with LYRASIS, will transition from the duraspace.org domain to the lyrasis.org domain on Saturday, Nov 16 beginning at approximately 7pm ET. A period of downtime of 2-3 hours is expected. After the transition, this wiki will be available at https://wiki.lyrasis.org/. All links to duraspace.org wiki pages will be redirected to the correct lyrasis.org URL. If you have questions prior to or following the transition please contact: wikihelp@lyrasis.org.

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)
    
  • Servlet 3.0 container such as:

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.

Servlet Containers

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,
