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.
- Servlet 3.0 container such as:
- A case-sensitive filesystem. Fedora 6 stores resources on disk in an OCFL repository, and OCFL requires a case-sensitive filesystem. By default, Windows and Mac systems uses case-insenstive filesystems. If you intend to run Fedora on such a system, you should do some combination of the following:
- Locate Fedora home on a case-sensitive volume. This is an exercise for the reader.
- Do not use Archival Groups. Case related resource name collisions can only happen when dealing with resources contained within the same Archival Group.
- Do not name two different resources the same but with different casing.
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 releases
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.
If you'd like to run using docker you can simply install docker and then run the following command:
For the latest bleeding edge development:
For a particular version:
For all the available docker configuration options for fcrepo see the fcrepo-docker README.
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 9 or Jetty 9.
For details on installing Fedora to those containers, see the Deployment guide.
Once Fedora is running,

- Explore the web-application configuration options
- Explore enabling repository asset authorization
- Explore setting up an external search index
