Oh sorry! I'll get ansible and try again. I'm a litle ashamed I was watching the wrong place.

But I've get to know some components.

Thank you very much and i'll tell you how it went. If you need a hand with docs I can help!

Best regards and thanks again.

Hi Miguel

One of the goals of the forthcoming workshop is to clean up legacy documentation such as that which you have stumbled upon.  You are following old guides there I am afraid.

Please can you start here: http://dev.gbif.org/wiki/display/ALA/01+Essential+tools+and+environment+configurations

The installation is actually run as an Ansible playbook now and not the shell script you were using.  Once Ansible is set up, and you have a target host, the installation should be very straightforward.

Sorry about this - it looks like you made great progress though so I am sure you learnt something about the underlying pieces at least.

I'm following the getting started page from:

And had a couple of minor issues:

- When I try to download cassandra and solr, the cited releases aren't
available in mirror sites. I've downloaded this ones:

I also had a little issue "unzip" the taxon.tgz. It looks like if it
weren't zipped, just tared.

$ tar xf taxon.tgz

Will do.

For the biocache service, the
http://ala-portal.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/biocache-service/biocache-config/applicationContext.xml.empty download link was broken. Is this a valid one?

Is this properties file correct?

I've found many references to remote servers. I've already changed the
solrHome. Should I change any other?

When I get to the biocache cli. If i press Enter or call any command I

$ java -cp .:biocache.jar -Xmx2g -Xms2g  au.org.ala.util.CommandLineTool
| Biocache management tool |

Please supply a command or hit ENTER to view command list.
biocache> healthcheck
BANG! Guice exceptions! The full exception is in the attached file.

Any clue? Is there any jar missing in the classpath or any configuration
file missing?

Thank you very much in advance and best regards,
