There are multiple ways to install and use Archivematica 0.8-alpha. Once installed, consult the User_Manual for user instructions.

Virtual appliance

1. What is a virtual appliance?

2. Download your preferred virtual appliance format (sha256,md5sum):

3. If you don't already have a virtual machine player, we recommend VirtualBox. See these Virtual appliance instructions on how to load your Archivematica virtual appliance using VirtualBox.

Live USB key

  1. Download this usb img: archivematica-0.8-alpha-usb.tbz
  2. Use it to create a Live USB key: Build a Live USB disk
  3. See these instructions for getting started with the Live USB key: Use the Live USB
  4. Be forwarned, due to the slow speed of USB keys it may take a few minutes before SIPs appear in the dashboard.


These options require experience in linux and/or software development.

  • Checkout from Subversion Repository
    • This is an option for developers that want the ability to customize or enhance their own Archivematica installation and/or contribute code back to the Archivematica project. See the Development environment page for further instructions.
  • Install from Packages on ubuntu
