Updating from Archivematica 1.1[edit]

If you have installed Archivematica 1.1.0 from packages, it is possible to update your installation without re-installing. The steps are:

Update Archivematica Storage Service[edit]

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install archivematica-storage-service

Update Archivematica[edit]

It is always a good idea to make a backup of your archivematica database before performing any updates. Exact procedures for updating will depend on your local installation, but a simple example would be to use mysqldump:

mysqldump -u root -p MCP > ~/am110_backup.sql

If you do not have a password set for the root user in mysql, you can take out the '-p' portion of that command. If there is a problem during the upgrade process, you can restore your mysql database from this backup and try the upgrade again.

During the update process you may be asked about updating configuration files. Choose to accept the maintainers versions. You will also be asked about updating the database, say 'ok' to each of those steps. If you have set a password for the root mysql database user, enter it when prompted. It is better to update the dashboard before updating the mcp components

sudo apt-get install archivematica-common
sudo apt-get install archivematica-dashboard
sudo apt-get install archivematica-mcp-server
sudo apt-get install archivematica-mcp-client

Update ElasticSearch (optional)[edit]

Archivematica 1.2.0 has been tested most extensively against version 0.90.13 of ElasticSearch. This is the same version that was distributed with Archivematica 1.1.0, so no changes to ElasticSearch should be required in most cases. Do not attempt to use ElasticSearch 1.0 or greater.

Restart Services[edit]

sudo service uwsgi restart
sudo service nginx restart
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
sudo /etc/init.d/elasticsearch restart
sudo /etc/init.d/gearman-job-server restart
sudo restart archivematica-mcp-server
sudo restart archivematica-mcp-client
sudo restart fits

Installing Archivematica 1.2 packages (new install)[edit]

Archivematica packages are hosted on Launchpad, in an Ubuntu PPA (Personal Package Archive). In order to install software onto your Ubuntu 12.04.5 system from a PPA:

  • Add the archivematica/release PPA to your list of trusted repositories (if add-apt-repositories is not available you must install python-software-properties first):
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:archivematica/release
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:archivematica/externals

There are test packages available for Ubuntu 14.04. If you would like to evaluate or test Archivematica on Ubuntu 14.04, use the archivematica/qa ppa instead of archivematica/release in the instructions above. Please note that this is not yet verified to actually work.

sudo wget -O - | sudo apt-key add -

Then add this line to the bottom of /etc/apt/sources.list

deb stable main
  • Update your system to the most recent 12.04 release (12.04.5 at the time of this writing).
  • This step will also fetch a list of the software from the PPAs you just added to your system.
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
  • Install all packages (each of these packages can be installed seperately, if necessary). Say YES or OK to any prompts you get after entering the following into terminal:
sudo apt-get install archivematica-storage-service
sudo apt-get install elasticsearch
sudo apt-get install archivematica-mcp-server 
sudo apt-get install archivematica-mcp-client 
sudo apt-get install archivematica-dashboard 
  • Configure the dashboard and storage service

note:these steps are safe to do on a desktop, or a machine dedicated to Archivematica. They may not be advisable on an existing web server. Consult with your web server administrator if you are unsure.

sudo wget -q -O /etc/apache2/sites-available/default
sudo rm /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/default
sudo ln -s /etc/nginx/sites-available/storage /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/storage
sudo ln -s /etc/uwsgi/apps-available/storage.ini /etc/uwsgi/apps-enabled/storage.ini
sudo service uwsgi restart
sudo service nginx restart
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
sudo freshclam
sudo /etc/init.d/clamav-daemon start
sudo /etc/init.d/elasticsearch restart
sudo /etc/init.d/gearman-job-server restart
sudo start archivematica-mcp-server
sudo start archivematica-mcp-client
sudo start fits

The storage service runs as a separate web application from the Archivematica dashboard. Go to the following link in a web browser:

http://localhost:8000 (or use the IP address of the machine you have been installing on).

log in as user: test password: test

  • Create a new administrative user in the Storage service

The storage service has its own set of users. In the User menu in the Administrative tab of the storage service, add at least one administrative user, and delete or modify the test user.

  • Test the dashboard

you can login to the archivematica dashboard and finish the installation in a web browser: http://localhost (again, use the IP address of the machine you have been installing on)

  • Register your installation for full Format Policy Registry interoperability.

Register Archivematica 1.2

Using AtoM 2.x with Archivematica[edit]

Archivematica has been successfully tested with AtoM 2.x. The best known configuration is Archivematica 1.2.0 with AtoM deployed from the stable/2.0.x branch. Archivematica has been successfully tested with the qa/2.1.x branch.

Installation instructions for Atom 2 are available on the website . When following those instructions, it is best to download Atom from the git repository (rather than use one of the supplied tarballs). When checking out Atom, use the head of either the stable/2.0.x or qa/2.1.x branch.

Once you have a working AtoM installation, you can configure dip upload between Archivematica and Atom. The basic steps are:

  • update atom dip upload configuration in the Archivematica dashboard
  • confirm atom-worker is configured on the Atom server (copy the atom-worker.conf file from atom source to /etc/init/)
  • enable the Sword Plugin in the AtoM plugins page
  • enable job scheduling in the AtoM settings page
  • confirm gearman is installed on the AtoM server
  • configure ssh keys to allow rsync to work for the archivematica user, from the Archivematica server to the Atom server
  • start gearman on the Atom server
  • start the atom worker on the Atom server

These steps are detailed on the DIP Upload page.
