Starting the Alfresco Content Services server

Once you've installed Alfresco Content Services using the distribution zip, you can start the server. The server must be running before you can use Alfresco Share.

  1. Navigate to the installation directory for your database and start the server.
  2. Navigate to the Tomcat /bin directory and start the server:

    For example: (Linux)


    For example: (Windows)


    You need administrator rights to run this command.

  3. Browse to the location of your Alfresco Content Services installation:

    For example, http://<your-host>:8080/alfresco.
