Installation of Modules

All Para Modules use The Alfresco Module Management Tool to deploy the modules to your Alfresco environment.

The Module Management tool is a Java jar file included with Alfresco, that allows you to install amp files into the existing alfresco.war and share.war files. You must have Java installed to use it.

There are two main ways to use this tool:

  • If you are using the automatic installation, you can use the apply amps script.
  • Using the Module Management tool directly.
  • Using Paramp

All of our modules are based on subscription, please click here to browse.

Using the Apply Amps tool

If you are using the automatic installation of Alfresco, you can use the included apply_amps script.

Following this process:

  • Navigate to your Alfresco Installation directory:

    • On Windows this will be something like C:\Alfresco-5.0
    • On Linux/Unix this will be something like /opt/alfresco-5.0/
  • Copy over the share amps to the amps_share directory. All files within this folder are installed to share.war

  • Copy over the repo amps to the amps directory. All files within this folder are installed to alfresco.war
  • Stop the Alfresco service
  • In a Command prompt, run bin/apply_amps.sh on Linux/Unix or bin\apply_amps.bat on Windows
  • Start the Alfresco service

Using the Module Management tool directly

To install an AMP file directly, then you can use the module management tool manually, so that you can provide further control.

  • For either alfresco or share, find the war file location ( alfresco.war or share.war )
  • Stop the Alfresco service
  • Run the following command:
java -jar alfresco-mmt.jar install <AMPFileLocation> <WARFileLocation>
  • Start the Alfresco service

Using Paramp

Paramp is an alternative command line tool that will allow you to install the AMP files into an expanded directory.

Please see Paramp for more information on how to use this tool.
