2 Pre-Requisite software Java SDK Apache Maven Apache Ant Apache Tomcat PostgreSQL Dspace

3 Before Installation of DSpace Kindly Check your computer is running on 32 or 64 bit windows To find out following are the steps: Windows vista or windows 7 Open System by clicking the Start button  clicking Control Panel  clicking System and Maintenance  clicking System. 2. Under System, you can view the system type.

4 Windows XP Click Start, and then click Run. Type sysdm.cpl, and then click OK. Click the General tab. The operating system is displayed as follows: For a 64-bit version operating system: Windows XP Professional x64 Edition Version appears under System. For a 32-bit version operating system: Windows XP Professional Version appears under System.

5 Installation Steps Before attempting installation please check that you have downloaded and saved all the mentioned prerequisites as shown below. Java SDK (jdk-6u38-windows-i586) Apache ant (apache-ant-1.8.4-bin) Apache Maven (apache-maven-3.0.4-bin) PostgreSQL (postgresql-9.2.2-1-windows) Apache Tomcat (apache-tomcat-7.0.34) DSpace (dspace-3.0-src-release)

6 Step- 1 JAVA SDK (jdk-6u38-windows-i586) k6u38-downloads-1877406.html Installing Java, to do this, double click on the file ‘jdk-6u38- windows-i586’ and follow the on screen instructions and accept the license agreement.

7 Step -2 APACHE ANT (apache-ant-1.8.4-bin) To install Apache Ant, create a new folder named “ANT” in “C:” drive, Unzip (Expand) contents of “apache-ant-1.8.4-bin” in to C:\ANT APACHE MAVEN (apache-maven-3.0.4-bin) To install Apache Maven create a new folder named “MAVEN” in C:\MAVEN unzip “” in to that folder.

9 Step-3 (Environment Variable) For Windows Vista or Windows 7 Right click “My Computer”  Click “Properties”  Click on “Advanced System Settings” from “Tasks”  Choose “Advance” tab  Click on “Environment Variable” Button For Windows XP Right click “My Computer”  Click Properties  “Advance” tab  Click on “Environment Variable” Button Now click on “PATH” variable under ‘System Variables’ and click on “Edit”.Button

10 Variable Name: JAVA_HOME Variable Value: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_38 Variable Name: ANT_HOME Variable Value: C:\ANT

11 Add followings to your PATH variable ; C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_38\bin;C:\ANT\bin;C:\MAVEN\bin

12 Step-4 Now it is time to verify the platform, to do this execute following commands in to the command prompt. > java –version > ant –version >mvn – version One should get following output.


14 Step-5 This step covers installation of PostgreSQL with database creation, to install PostgreSQL double click on “postgresql-9.2.2-1-windows”. Follow the onscreen instruction given by installer.


16 Step-6 In this step we will create an empty database for DSpace. To do this, perform following operation Start >> Programs >> PostgreSQL 9.2 >> pgAdmin III In this window right click on your server and click on connect as shown below.

21 Creating New Database

22 Step-7 Apache Tomcat (apache-tomcat-7.0.34) This step installation of Apache Tomcat will be attempted, to do this, double click on “apache-tomcat- 7.0.34.exe”

23 Apache Tomcat SetUp

26 Step-8 This step we will perform actual installation of dspace. Before doing this create an empty directory in C: drive, where actual configuration, program files and datafiles of dspace will reside. In our case we will be using “C:\DSpace”

27 Extract all the contents of ‘’ to one folder (i.e DSpace) and copy entire folder to your C:\ drive as C:\ dspace-1.7.0-src- Once the files are unzipped, go to “C:\Dspace\dspace-3.0-src-release\dspace\config”, Find out “dspace.cfg” and open in notepad or any other editor and atleast change the following parameters. Use forward slashes `/` for path separators

28 Changes to be made in Dspace.cfg dspace.dir = C:/Dspace. = "Dspace Repository". mail.server = mail.from.address = feedback.recipient = mail.admin =

29 Once you have edited dspace configuration file open the command prompt and go to “C:\ dspace-3.0-src-release \dspace” folder “cd C:\Dspace\dspace-3.0-src-release\dspace” Now type “mvn package” and press enter “C:\Dspace\dspace-3.0-src-release\dspace> mvn package” Note:Please note that internet connection is required to perform this operation,Maven will download dspace source dependencies online.

30 Now go to “C:\ dspace-1.7.0-src-release\dspace\target\dspace-1.7.0- build.dir” on command prompt “cd C:\ dspace-1.7.0-src-release\dspace\target\dspace-1.7.0-build.dir” Now type “ant fresh_install” and press enter C:\ dspace-1.7.0-src-release\dspace\target\dspace-1.7.0-build.dir>ant fresh_install

31 Step-9 Create Administrator Now it is time to create default system administrator. To create administrator execute following command “C:\dspace\bin\dspace create-administrator”

32 Using your explorer browse through your C:\dspace\webapps folder

33 Copy “jspui” and “xmlui” folder to your tomcat installation’s webapps folder

34 Step-10 Start tomcat service if it is already not running by going in to : Control Panel  Administrative Tools  Services  Apache Tomcat 7 and clicking on “Start” Point your browser to http://localhost:8080/jspui or http://localhost:8080/xmlui

59 Dspace Backup At an absolute minimum, you should back up: [dspace-source] if you've made any customizations [dspace]/assetstore [dspace]/config Program File/Apache software foundation/tomcat/webapps [dspace]/history and [dspace]/log if you want to preserve activity records PostgreSQL, especially /usr/local/pgsql/data (or wherever the data dir is)
