Quick Start Guide

 

Starting from Datafari 5.0

So you want to install the community version or test the appliance, and give it a try with a files system ? This page is made for you. You can either use the preconfigured Docker Image, or the preconfigured VM, or install the Debian package on your Linux OS :

1. Datafari Appliance

1.1. VM Appliance

Credentials information :

default user on Debian : the user is demo, the password is demo. To be root user : su root (password root) or enter sudo su -

admin user on Datafari : the user is admin, password : admin

For the SAMBA share : IP : localhost, user : shareuser, password : shareuser, path : allusers

If you want to test Datafari on a Virtual Machine, you can use our appliance. You can download it here : http://www.datafari.com/files/appliance/datafari.ova The file is in OVA so you can test it either on VMWare or on VirtualBox for example.

Check our https://datafari.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/DATAFARI/pages/1662451718/Hardware+requirements page.

Just import it on your favorite VM application and use it !

NB : the keyboard input is by default in French.

Note that Datafari is already installed in the Debian appliance. Just click on the icon named "CLICK HERE TO START DATAFARI" and Datafari will be started and Firefox will be opened with the Datafari URL (https://localhost/Datafari).

That's it !

1.2. Docker Image

If you want to test Datafari on a Docker Machine, you can use our uptodate images. The repository is here: https://hub.docker.com/r/datafari/datafari/ . To pull the image, launch docker pull datafari/datafari

Check our https://datafari.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/DATAFARI/pages/1662451718/Hardware+requirements page

For the Docker Container Image, the default user is admin, password : admin

NB : the keyboard input is by default in French.

The port that needs to be exposed is 443.

You can launch the container by this command: docker container run --name datafari -d -p 443:443 datafari/datafari:latest

That's it !

If you want to use the jcifs-ng connector in ManifoldCF, check our Add the JCIFS-NG Connector to Datafari - Community Edition page.

You can directly use the simplified jobs of Datafari to add files or websites to index into your Datafari instance, see https://datafari.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/DATAFARI/pages/682754069/MCF+Simplified+UI+configuration

You can find documentation on how to create connectors and jobs on Apache ManifoldCF here : https://manifoldcf.apache.org/release/release-2.18/en_US/end-user-documentation.html

Enjoy Datafari !
