The default installation of EPrints is on a stand-alone linux system, but this is not the only way EPrints can (and has) been installed.
The EPrints team currently recommends installing EPrints in one of the following ways:
Here are some other ways:
- Proxied to a non-root user account: Where the server and all associated code is installed without root/admin access to anything
- Hosted on virtual directories other than root - sharing with other Web applications on the same server
This category contains a range of other sets of instructions for different operating systems and versions of EPrints. Most of them are not supported but may still work. For free support and discussion about EPrints you can sign up to the EP-Tech.
If you want to write Installation instructions for a system other than those listed here please do. Remember to tag the page with [[Category:Installation]] so that appears in this list.
If you use one of the installation guides below and it doesnt work edit the page to say what went wrong and how you fixed it. This will help others (and probably your future self) tackle these problems in future. Here you can register for an eprints.org account to edit the wiki.
