This is an installer for ArchivesSpace. This installer is intended only for Windows machines.

For typical use of the tool, download the file with a .jar extension for the latest release.

Before you can install ArchivesSpace, you must install MySQL and java.

First select the tab labeled Install ArchivesSpace. The following gives an overview of the fields listed on this tab.

  • Install Directory: This is the base directory for your ArchivesSpace installation. A folder called 'archivesspace' will be created within this directory and will contain all the files neccesary to run ArchivesSpace. (Note: your install directory cannot have spaces in any part of its name. Be sure to remove any spaces before attempting an installation.)
  • Version: Specify the version of ArchivesSpace you want to install. By default, the latest release will be installed. If you wish to install a different version, uncheck the box labeled Install Latest ArchivesSpace Version and select your desired version from the dropdown.
  • Config Options
    • Disable public interface: Select this box if you do not plan to use ArchivesSpace's public user interface and want to disable it.
    • URLs: The next few boxes are used to set the URLs for the various ArchivesSpace components. The default values are included by default.
  • Database: There are 2 choices for how you want to handle creating your database.
    • Option 1: Use the ArchivesSpace installer to create your database. Before you do this, you will need to install MySQL Community Server.
      • Create Database: You should select this box since you want the installer to create the database for you.
      • MySQL Admin Username and Password: Enter the credentials for a MySQL user that has permissions to create a new database. If you followed the instructions on this page for installing MySQL, than the username and password are the credentials you entered when you created a user on the Accounts and Roles page. If you installed MySQL on the same machine you are installing ArchivesSpace on, you could also use root as the username and the password would be whatever you set MySQL Root Password to during the MySQL installation process.
      • Database Name: Enter the name you want the new database to have. Something descriptive like aspace or archivesspace would be a good choice.
      • Host: The host name to connect to MySQL. This may be localhost, an IP address, or a URL. If you installed MySQL on the same machine you are installing ArchivesSpace on, than this will be localhost. Otherwise you will need to determine the IP address or URL of the server where you installed MySQL.
      • Port: The port to connect to MySQL. This should be a number (probably it is 3306 unless you changed it).
      • MySQL Username and Password: Fill in the username and password for a user for whom to grant access to the database. This can either be credentials for a MySQL user that already exists or it can be a user that does not yet exist but will be created during the installation process.
    • Option 2: Connect ArchivesSpace to a database that already exists. Before you do this, you will need to install MySQL Community Server and create a database for ArchivesSpace according to these instructions. You do not need to run the database setup script since the installer will do this for you.
      • Create Database: Unselect this box since you have already created a database for ArchivesSpace
      • MySQL Admin Username and Password: You do not need to fill in these fields.
      • Database Name: Enter the name of the database that has already been created for ArchivesSpace. Only use a database that is empty as the installer will assume that it is empty and will not back up this database.
      • Host: The host name to connect to MySQL. This may be localhost, an IP address, or a URL. If MySQL is installed on the same machine you are installing ArchivesSpace on, than this will be localhost. Otherwise you will need to determine the IP address or URL of the server where you installed MySQL.
      • Port: The port to connect to MySQL. This should be a number (probably it is 3306 unless you changed it).
      • MySQL Username and Password: Enter the credentials for the user to whom you granted access to the database you created for Archivesspace.

Once you have completed all the required fields, click Install ArchivesSpace to begin the installation. This may take a while. Do not be concerned if the progress bar does not move for awhile as some steps take longer than others and it does not always indicate steady progress.

When the installation is finished, you can safely exit out of the installer. To start up ArchivesSpace, run with archivesspace.bat which is found in the archivesspace folder in your install directory.

If your installation is not successful, you will receive an error message and the installer will remove all files so that you can start again after correcting any issues. Please note that it is best to close the installer and open it again before attempting another installation.

ALWAYS backup your ArchivesSpace instance before upgrading. This installer includes some safety measures to avoid losing data if the upgrade fails, but do not assume it is infallible.

Be sure to stop ArchivesSpace before attempting to install updates. It may be a good idea to restart your machine.

Select the tab labeled Upgrade ArchivesSpace. The following gives an overview of the fields listed on this tab.

  • ArchivesSpace Installation Directory: This is the directory where your current ArchivesSpace installation is located. It should contain archivesspace.bat (probably a folder called archivesspace). (Note: your installation directory cannot have spaces in any part of its name. Be sure to remove any spaces before attempting an upgrade.)
  • The next check box gives you an option to keep your old installation directory.
  • Version: Select the version you wish to upgrade to. By default, you will be updated to the latest release. If you wish to update to a different version, uncheck the box labeled Upgrade To Latest ArchivesSpace Version and select your desired version from the dropdown. Do not select an earlier version than your current version as this will not work.

Once you have completed all the required fields, click Install Upgrade to begin the update. This may take a while. Do not be concerned if the progress bar does not move for awhile as some steps take longer than others and it does not always indicate steady progress.

When the update is finished, you can safely exit out of the installer. You will find a backup of your database before the installation in the data folder unless you were informed during the update process that a backup could not be created.

If your upgrade is not successful, you will receive an error message and the installer will remove all files so that you can start again after correcting any issues. Please note that it is best to close the installer and open it again before attempting another upgrade.

These instructions are for installing MySQL on a Windows machine. If you are installing MySQL on a different operating system, you can find some general installation instructions here.

MySQL is a relational database management system that ArchivesSpace uses. While it is possible to run ArchivesSpace using a demo database instead of MySQL, this should never be done in a production instance as the demo database's performance will be poor with any significant amount of data.

Installing MySQL is separate from installing ArchivesSpace because MySQL already provides an installer. The MySQL installer offers far more flexibility and insight than an automatic installation would. Some general steps for installing MySQL are given below. You may want to change some settings depending on your situation.

  1. Download the MySQL Installer. In most cases, the web version (my-sql-installer-web-community) should be fine, but if the machine you are installing MySQL on does not have a good internet connection, use mysql-installer-community.
  2. Run the downloaded installer. You may have to install the .NET Framework if the MySQL installer fails to open.
  3. Under License Agreement, accept the license agreement and click next.
  4. Under Choosing a Setup Type, choose Server Only and click next. If you wish to add any additional features, you can do so by running the installer again later.
  5. Check Requirements may or may not come up. If it does, press execute. Some other windows may come up and you may be prompted to accept a license agreement or something similar. You should do so. Wait for this to finish then click next.
  6. Under Installation, click execute and wait for the installation to finish. Then click next.
  7. Under Product Configuration, click next again.
  8. Under Group Replication, make sure Standalone MySQL Server/ Classic MySQL Replication is selected and click next.
  9. Under Type and Networking select Server Computer as Config Type. It is probably unneccesary to change the port number, but if you do, make sure you remember what you changed it to. Click next.
  10. Under Accounts and Roles, set your MySQL Root Password. Be sure to remember what you set this to. Then click Add User and add a user with host, <All Hosts (%)> and role DB Admin. Be sure to remember what you set the username and password to. Click next.
  11. Under Windows Service, the settings should be fine. If it tells you there is a conflict with Service Name then change it to something else. Click next.
  12. Under Plugins and Extensions, click next again.
  13. Under Apply Configuration press execute. Press finish when it is done.
  14. Product Configuration will come back up. Press next.
  15. You should see an installation completed message. Press finish.
  16. You may want to add MySQL to your PATH environment variable. This will make it simpler to backup your database in the future.

Return to initial installation instructions.

Before you install java, you can check to see if it is already installed by opening a command prompt window and typing java -version then pressing enter. If java is already installed, you will see some text that shows which version of java you have and some other information. Otherwise, you will get a message that says 'java' is not recognized as an internal or external command, ooperable program or batch file. If java is not installed, complete the following steps.

  1. Download the installer from here.
  2. Run the installer. Press yes when prompted to allow it to make changes to your computer.
  3. Press install.
  4. Press OK.
  5. Wait for the installation to finish and then press close.
  6. After you install java, be sure to exit out of the ArchivesSpace Installer and reopen it.

Return to initial installation instructions.

Step by step guide to download MySQL for Windows and macOS using different methods:

In this tutorial, we will learn the different ways/approaches to see how you can download MySQL and start using it within a couple of minutes.

MySQL can be downloaded as a standalone installer for different operating systems, or as a zipped image/archive and the easiest one is using docker for MySQL if you just want to learn and explore MySQL.

Also, please note that MySQL is available as a community (free) and enterprise (paid) edition to download.

MySql Download Through Installer

MySQL is available to download as a standalone package installer for both Windows and macOS.

Let’s see the details for each of these.

Installing MySQL On Windows

a) Prerequisites: Before starting the installation process, please note that MySQL Installer requires .NET Framework 4.5.2 (If you have an older version of the .NET framework, then update that in order to begin the installation process).

b) Download MySQL community installer from the source here. (The current version of MySQL while writing this tutorial is 8.0.20. If you need to download a specific version of MySQL, then you can refer to the respective installer here and choose the version that you wish to install).

Choose the installer depending on whether the Windows version you are using is 32bit or 64bit (you can refer the link here to know the version of OS that you are using).

c) After downloading the installer, open the installer exe and continue with the instructions. Please note that you will require an active internet connection as the installer is a shell and it downloads the selected products over the internet once chosen during the installation process.

For choosing the configuration, you can choose the ‘Developer Default’ that takes care of almost all the required stuff for development/testing needs.

d) Once the setup is complete, if you have chosen to install the client for MySQL (MySQL Workbench which is Community/free download), then you can connect your server instance, else you can check the installation from the command line by executing the command below.

Installing MySQL On MacOS

#1) For installing/downloading MySQL on macOS through disk image (.dmg) or installer – download the disk image file for the community edition from here

#2) Once the dmg file is downloaded, double click to mount the disk image and start the installation process by following the instructions in the install package. Follow the below screenshots for the step-by-step installation process.

#3) Once the installation is complete, in order to turn on the MySQL server, you can open MySql preferences and turn on the MySQL server if not turned on already.

Open the System preferences and click on the MySQL icon.

The MySQL preferences pane will open now and you can see the status of the MySQL server. If it’s not already running, then you can turn on the server from there.

#4) Now let’s check whether our installation is successful or not by checking the version from the command line. Open the terminal prompt and navigate to the MySQL install directory which is by default

Run the below command to check the version.

If you see the output lias below, then it means that your installation was successful.

#5) In order to use MySQL from the command line, you can continue using the command line or terminal (with the password that was set during the install process) or download MySQL client applications like MySQL Workbench to access via GUI.

Let’s explore a few command-line options. To get started with MySQL shell, run the below commands.

Now, you would be prompted for the password (You need to enter the one that was entered during installation – suppose you set the password as ‘password’), then at the password prompt enter the password. Once the authentication is successful, the user would log in to the MySQL shell.

Let’s try running a sample command to see if the shell is working correctly or not. Execute the below command on the MySQL shell.

You should be able to see the below output for the command.

MySQL Docker Image

Installing MySQL through a docker image as a docker container is the easiest approach if you just want to learn MySQL and don’t want to install the full software/server on your system.

Docker lets you quickly spin up, turn on and turn off the containers that contain the required software which in this case is the MySQL server.

Let’s see the steps that would be required to install MySQL as a Docker image.

#1) In order to use Docker image, you would require to install Docker based on your OS. In order to install Docker, follow the instructions here

#2) Once the Docker engine is installed, we would need to download (or pull) the Docker image from the Docker hub. Let’s see the command that can be used to pull the Docker image for the Community server edition.
Execute the below command on the terminal or command prompt.

Here, the tag represents the version of the MySQL Community Server edition that you want to download. If you are not looking for a specific version, then you can simply omit the tag details and run the command below (This would fetch the image for the latest available edition of the MySQL Community Edition).

#3) Once the Docker image is downloaded, we can try listing the images, and see if we can find a MySQL image in the list that gets displayed. Run the below command in the terminal (for Linux based systems).

If you see the output like below, then that would mean that your Docker image was downloaded successfully.

#4) Now let’s run a container against the Docker image that we just downloaded. We would name the container as ‘’mysql-docker-demo”. Run the below command to start the container from the image.

#5) Now, in order to obtain the password that’s set while running the Docker container, we can fetch the details from the Docker logs and then restart this password using the ALTER command.

Execute the following command on the terminal:

Please note that ‘mysql-docker-demo’ in the command above is the name of the docker container. If you’ve named the container differently then you would need to replace it with the container name.

If your Docker container is started properly, then you would see the output as shown below.

#6) We would now login to the mysql shell in the Docker container with the generated password.

Execute the below command.

When prompted for a password, enter the one from Step #5 above. Once, entered you would be logged in to the MySQL client within the Docker container.

At this time, if you enter a command like SHOW DATABASES; then it would throw an error and ask to update/change the default password.

#7) Let’s now reset the password using the ALTER command.

ALTER USER ‘root’@’localhost’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘password’;

Here ‘password’ is the actual password that you want to set for the root user. You can change it to any value as appropriate and desired.

#8) Now we will try running a simple command to validate our installation. We would run the command SHOW DATABASES; to get the details of all the available databases.

Here’s the command output

mysql> show DATABASES;
+——————–+
Database
+——————–+
information_schema
mysql
performance_schema
sys
+——————–+
4 rows in set (0.00 sec)

#9) With this, we have now successfully started the Docker container having MySQL installation and this could now be used for running any MySQL commands – just like how you do with installation on a local machine.

You could also start/stop the Docker container on-demand as and when required.

To stop the MySQL docker container, you could use the below command.

To start the Docker container back, you could use the below command.

MySQL Enterprise Edition
