Getting started

If you have the Java 1.6.0 SDK (or above) you can build and run a demo server with the following commands:

 git clone git://github.com/hudmol/archivesspace.git

 cd archivesspace

 build/run dist

 java -jar archivesspace.jar

This will start the ArchivesSpace application running on:

http://localhost:8080/

and the backend web service running on:

http://localhost:8089/

If you'd like to use different ports, you can run:

java -jar archivesspace.jar [frontend port] [backend port]

To set up the application log in to the frontend application using the adminstrator account:

  • Username: admin
  • Password: admin

Create a repository after logging in. Once you have created a repository, you can log out and register new user accounts from the link in the log-in form.

Note: If you have already run the service in demo mode, you may need to remove the existing demo database in order to avoid a 'java.sql.SQLException: Failed to create database' error:

    build/run db:nuke
