This document is a guide to getting up and running with Fedora as quickly as possible.
Out of the box
If you are looking for scripted deployments, please take a look at Fedora's deployment tooling.
There are two primary ways of deploying Fedora. The first, One-Click Run, is an easy way to get Fedora running to test out the basic features. The second, Servlet Container Install, is the approach to be used in production installations.
- Download the latest executable webapp "one-click-run" from downloads
Either double-click on the download, or run the following command to start Fedora
Once Fedora is seen to be running at the following URL, start exploring the feature tour
Note, port 8080 is the default. Replace that port number in the above URL if you used a different value.
Alternatively, instead of deploying Fedora via the "one-click run", the Fedora web-application can be installed by dropping the WAR file into a servlet 3 container, such as Tomcat 7 or Jetty 8.
For details on installing Fedora to those containers, see the Deploying Fedora - Complete Guide guide.
