This topic describes the steps for installing Alfresco in a distributed environment.
The main stages involved in installing Alfresco in a cluster are shown in the High-level
flowchart below. You must install and configure your data on a single node first and then on
the second node, and so on.
The main steps involved in the installing process include preparing your system for
installation, installing Alfresco on a single
node, installing Alfresco on node 2, and finally, testing and getting familiar to
Alfresco. Repeat the last two steps on all the other nodes in your system in series.
Each of these main stages consist of sub-steps, as shown in the Detailed flowchart
below. The Detailed flowchart
displays the sub-steps that need to be performed in order to
complete each main stage.
Note: Note that the steps shown in the High-level flowchart have
a colour code, which corresponds to the same colour coded steps in the Detailed
flowchart. For example, Preparing for install stage consists of four sub-steps, namely,
Software requirements, Language support, Validate the architecture, Validate the environment,
and Recommended distribution.
Note: Make sure you do not install and configure all the
nodes in parallel. Follow in the installation process in series for all the nodes in your
