Deploying Archivematica 1.0 packages

Archivematica packages are hosted on Launchpad, in an Ubuntu PPA (Personal Package Archive). There are a number of Archivematica PPA's, the test versions of Archivematica 1.0 packages are hosted in the archivematica/daily ppa. In order to install software onto your Ubuntu 12.04 system from this PPA:

  • Update your system to the most recent 12.04 release (12.04.3)
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
  • Add the archivematica/daily PPA to your list of trusted repositories(if add-apt-repositories is not available you must install python-software-properties first):
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:archivematica/daily
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:archivematica/externals-dev

Note: The daily PPA is used for daily snapshots, it is not suitable for use in a production environment. When testing of the packages in the daily PPA is complete, they will be copied to the archivematica/release ppa for production use.

  • Fetch a list of the software from the archivematica/daily ppa:
sudo apt-get update
  • Install all packages (each of these packages can be installed sperately, if necessary)
sudo apt-get install archivematica-mcp-server archivematica-mcp-client archivematica-dashboard archivematica-storage-service
  • 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.

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
  • Test the storage service

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 pass: test

  • Delete the test user and create a new user
The storage service runs as a separate web app from the Archivematica dashboard, and has its own set of users. You should add at least one 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
