OpenERP Appliance

Collaboration Works

This script automates the setting up of Alfresco Community on Ubuntu Server 9.0.4 & Ubuntu Desktop 9.0.4.

Alfresco is an enterprise content management system for Microsoft Windows and Unix-like operating systems. Alfresco comes in two flavours . Alfresco Community Edition is free software, GPL licensed open source and open standards, but never officially stable. Alfresco Enterprise Edition is commercially / proprietary licensed open source, open standards and enterprise scale. Its design is geared towards users who require a high degree of modularity and scalable performance. Alfresco includes a content repository, an out-of-the-box web portal framework for managing and using standard portal content, a CIFS interface that provides file system compatibility on Microsoft Windows and Unix-like operating systems, a web content management system capable of virtualizing webapps and static sites via Apache Tomcat, Lucene indexing, and jBPM workflow. The Alfresco system is developed using Java technology.

Requirements: A fresh installation of Ubuntu Server 9.0.4 or Ubuntu Desktop 9.0.4. Apache is installed by this script. This means that the script expects to deal with default config files. TIP: test this script within a Virtual Machine after installing Ubuntu 9.04 from scratch.

Run the script as non-root with the following commands:

$ sudo apt-get install gzip
$ gzip -d
$ chmod +x
$ ./

You will be asked for:
1) The DNS Name your Alfresco service will be available at
2) IP address your Alfresco service will be listening on
3) Your LANG
4) Etc.

Your brandnew Alfresco Community Edition will be reached with a web browser at:
http://YOUR-DNS-NAME/alfresco/faces/ (admin/admin)
http://YOUR-DNS-NAME/alfresco (guest)
