Some installation questions

Question asked by klitwak on Feb 12, 2008
I am totally new to Alfresco.  I want to install it on an existing Tomcat 6 server.  I want to allow only web client access.  I need to set up users in groups.  Tomcat is on a LINUX machine.  I need to user postgres as the database.  I found a document on installation but I'm not sure of the best way to go about doing the installation.  I want to do the simplest thing possible.  My skill set is short in the area of configuring stuff.  I can change the database stuff after installation.  What is the simplest way to deploy Alfresco on Tomcat 6?  Can I just unpack the download, and use the Manager in Tomcat to deploy the war, or do I need to run an installation script instead?  Also, I'm going to try to skip creating users and instead use CAS to authenticate.  I'm trying to figure out how to do this but not sure yet.  Any suggestions?  I'm pretty nervous about doing this, and foreseeing weeks and weeks of spare time to get it working at all.  Thanks.
