Preparations

We will be using a virtual machine for the hands-on portions of the camp, so please follow these instructions to get the VM up and running on your laptop *before* you arrive. However, we will also have USB drives with the VM at the camp in case you are unable to get everything working ahead of time.

NOTE: The VM uses 4GB of RAM, so you will need a laptop with at least 8GB of RAM to run it. Depending on your laptop manufacturer, you may also need to enable virtualization in the BIOS.

Windows users: You will need access to the SSH and cURL commands on the command line. If you don’t already have these available to you, please download GitHub Desktop (https://desktop.github.com) and use the included Git Shell application when asked to enter commands in a terminal window in the following instructions.

1. Download and install VirtualBox: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
2. Download and install Vagrant: http://www.vagrantup.com/downloads.html
3. Create a new folder called “tutorial” somewhere easy to locate
4. Save the Vagrantfile to the tutorial folder. Note that it has no file extension.
5. Open a terminal window, navigate to the tutorial folder, and issue the command: vagrant up

Note that this step will take a while to complete because you are downloading a virtual machine. It would be best to do this using a fast internet connection.

6. Navigate to http://localhost:8080/fcrepo in your web browser to access Fedora (user: fedoraAdmin, password: secret3)
7. Go back to your terminal window and enter the command: vagrant halt

Your VM should now be turned off. You can turn it on again with the ‘vagrant up’ command.
