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 documentation refers to an earlier version of Islandora. https://wiki.duraspace.org/display/ISLANDORA/Start is current.

This chapter is for those who wish to review Islandora’s functionality, or who wish to run a local version of Islandora as a Virtual Machine Image. This chapter assumes that you do not have a current running version of Islandora. If you are currently running an installation of Islandora, you do not need to review this section. If you would like to complete a full server installation of Islandora, please see Chapter 8 - Installing Islandora.

Accessing our Sandbox

To access the Islandora Sandbox, please visit http://sandbox.islandora.ca and login using the following credentials:

username: admin

password: islandora

This is an administrative account that will allow you to see Islandora from the perspective of a user who would add and administer repository content. This instance of Islandora has also been extended with Solution Packs, which will allow you to ingest particular types of content. If you are using the online sandbox to explore Islandora, you may move to the next section of this guide. If you are interested in seeing Islandora code in action, and having additional access to the system, you will want to install a Virtual Machine Image on your local computer.

Installing the Islandora Virtual Machine

The latest Islandora Virtual Machine image can be obtained from islandora.ca.
