The server must be running before you can use Alfresco Share or Alfresco Explorer. When you install Alfresco using the setup wizard, the server is automatically installed and started as a service.
- (Windows) If you installed Alfresco as a service, from the Start menu, select All Programs > Alfresco One > alfresco manager tool, and start the Tomcat Server and Postgres services.
Alternatively, from a command prompt, navigate to the Alfresco installation directory
(C:/Alfresco) and run servicerun START.
You need administrator rights to run this command.
These services are also available from the Start menu under Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools > Services.
- (Linux) If you installed Alfresco as a service, double click the Application Manager tool in the Alfresco root directory and start the PostgreSQL Database and Tomcat Server services.
Alternatively, browse to /opt/alfresco/ and run
./alfresco.sh start as an administrator.
Important: If you installed Alfresco using the setup wizard, the alfresco.sh script included in the installation disables the Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) feature across the system.Note: The default shell for this script is sh. You can edit the alfresco.sh file to change to your preferred shell. For example, change the #!/bin/sh line to #!/bin/bash.
