Before installing CollectionSpace, please verify that the hardware required is available to install five server software packages (six if you don't already have an FTP client). To install CollectionSpace, you will need to set up and configure CollectionSpace from the command line, and then review the logs to determine if everything has installed correctly. This is fairly straight-forward for someone with software administration experience, but it is not a single-click or wizard-supported experience at this time. For detailed instructions describing how to install CollectionSpace, please read the Installation Guide
. It includes supported operating systems, browsers, and software requirements.
There are people on the CollectionSpace team who can assist you with installing CollectionSpace. Please contact CollectionSpace's Project Manager, Megan Forbes (firstname.lastname@example.org
) for more information. Additionally, you can post your installation questions and experiences on the Troubleshooting Forum
or the Getting Started Forum
in the Forums section of this website. Either someone from the CollectionSpace team or a current implementer will respond.
