Installing Alfresco components


Alfresco requires additional software components to ensure that all its functionality is available, for example, Flash, SWF Tools. These components can be installed either before or after you have installed Alfresco.

For information on how to install the additional components, refer to Installing Alfresco components.


Installing SharePoint Protocol Support


Note: If you use the Windows or Linux installers to install Alfresco Labs 3, the SharePoint Protocol Support is installed by default. These instructions describe how to install the SharePoint Protocol Support into the Alfresco WAR. When you install this file, it responds to the SharePoint requests from Office, and therefore allows Alfresco to appear as a SharePoint server.

To install the SharePoint Protocol Support:


  1. Shut down your Alfresco server.
  2. Install the vti-module.amp file into the alfresco.war file using the Module_Management_Tool. The vti-module.amp file holds the functionality for the Sharepoint connector.
  3. Copy the ROOT.war file into the Tomcat webapps folder:
    1. Delete the ROOT folder from the webapps folder (if there is one).
    2. Copy ROOT.war into the webapps folder.
    3. Start your Alfresco server.

Note: Refer to Known Issues in the Release Notes for more information on the SharePoint Protocol Support.
