Use Rancher

Go on catalog and search Alfresco. Just click on deploy. Congratulation, you have Alfresco.

Docker-compose

Download the docker-compose file from my git repository, and run :

docker-compose up

Congratulation, you have Alfresco.

Docker

Run the alfresco image with the name "alfresco".

docker run --name='alfresco' -it --rm -p 8080:8080 webcenter/rancher-alfresco

NOTE: Please allow a few minutes for the application to start, especially if
populating the database for the first time.

Go to http://localhost:8080 or point to the ip of your docker server.

The default username and password are:

  • username: admin
  • password: admin

docker run -d --name "alfresco" \
  --link postgres:db \
  -p 7070:7070 -p 8080:8080 \
