As of version 24.20.0, DuraCloud requires Java 78. To determine the version of Java installed on your system, open a terminal (command prompt) and run the command "java -version". If the version number printed is less than 1.78, you will need to upgrade your Java version prior to running DuraCloud. As of version 3.3.0, DuraCloud is primarily tested using Java 8, and this is the recommended Java version for building and running DuraCloud. As of version 4.0.0,  DuraCloud requires Java 8.

The steps below outline how to start up a DuraCloud instance from the binary distribution.

  2. Install Tomcat application server (the DuraCloud service uses Tomcat 78)
    1. Please follow Tomcat configuration detailed on the Building From Source page.
  3. Deploy the web applications
    1. Take the 3 .war files included in the binary distribution and copy them into the "webapps" directory under your tomcat installation.
      1. You may need to remove the "ROOT" directory under webapps in order for the ROOT.war to deploy properly
    2. Start tomcat, as part of the startup process, tomcat will unpack the wars and deploy them

  4. Log in to the application by going to http://localhost:8080/duradmin.
  5. Congratulations, you are now running DuraCloud!
