Installation of eSciDoc Infrastructure 1.3
Supported Operating Systems
|Officially Supported||Tested||Known to work|
|Solaris 10||Mac OS X|
Other operating systems might work, but we have no expericence yet.
Prerequisites for the InstallationThe eSciDoc infrastructure is a Java application that runs in an J2EE application server. You need to install and configure a runtime environment first before you can actually deploy the infrastructure.
InstallationThere are two ways to install eSciDoc Infrastructure:
|Installer (strongly recommended)||Manually|
|To make the installation process as simple as|
possible, we provide an installer which you can
run in with a graphical user interface mode or
As soon as you have a current Sun Java JDK
and a running PostgreSQL database instance
on your machine, you can download the installer
and run it by either double-click the file or
invoking it in a command shell:
java -jar escidoc-core-1.3.9-installer.jar
Important Note: Please remember to start the
PostgreSQL database server before running
The installer will install the JBoss Application
Server, Fedora, and the eSciDoc Infrastructure.
Additionally, it will configure the system and
create a first set of users accounts.
| The hard way instructions|
* JBoss Application Server
* Configure Infrastructure
* Deploy eSciDoc
First steps with running infrastructure
The next steps would be to work with the infrastructure. You can either ingest your data or some examples for the first tests.
Configuration of different Login-providers
Infrastructure behind a Reverse Proxy
- Note: Login-Mechanism does several redirects. In order to resolve infrastructure-urls correctly, ReverseProxy has to transmit originally called host to infrastructure. Eg for Apache, set "ProxyPreserveHost on" in ProxyPass-Entry.
Upgrade from an earlier releaseIf you upgrade from an earlier release, you will need to upgrade from one release to the next higher release step by step (see next section). There is no possibility to do this in one step.
It's further more important that you can only use the eSciDoc installer to upgrade if the existing installation was done via installer. An upgrade of manually installation is not possible with the installer.
Upgrade from an 1.3.x releaseIf you upgrade from an 1.3.x release, please read the upgrade instructions.
Upgrade from an 1.2.x releaseIf you upgrade from an 1.2.x release, please read the upgrade instructions.
