There is no installer provided by Alfresco from this version, so you have two options:

  1. Using the official Distribution ZIP
  2. Using Docker containers

You can also install it using the Distribution ZIP that is actually the unique supported way:

https://docs.alfresco.com/6.2/concepts/ch-install.html

 

In general you can take a look at the main Deploying page:

https://docs.alfresco.com/6.2/concepts/master-deploy.html

Just a general perspective commentary on the 2 options for installing 6.2 which might be a compelling reason why this question has been asked before...

Although the docker container is reasonably straightfoward which is initially great way to get an overview on 6.2 however since the documentation is in some cases segmented but really doesn't provide a clear manual install path as it's very summarized in points. The other thing is from reading within some of the forum threads, it seems to make it harder to complete changes, updates and fixes etc...

What I believe the user really would like to see is perhaps a walkthrough scenario in completing a manual install from begining to completion.   In the end, I would think once there's a good walkthrough scenario example, it will be better suited to allow future updates and changes vs. just running in docker.  Lastly, keep in mind that in previous older version like the 5.2 community release made it rather easy process in completing a standalone install since it was just 1 executable bin file which was the previous way someone was used to completing install.

Even when you look back at the 5.2 build and search around, there's plenty of step by step walkthroughs and even some videos showing the steps.  Hence, this might be just worth mentioning since if you look in comparison, aside from the easy docker deployment, there's nothing much out there on a manual install scenario.  It might be a nice thing to see and would help promote the 6.2 release as well

Hi @nibbles & welcome to Alfresco.

Thanks for your considered review of the installation process and documentation - there is a lot of work being done internally at the moment with regard to installation & deployment scenarios & technologies. With that in mind, the first Tech Talk Live of 2021 is on this subject. Perhaps you could attend and raise these points on the day?

Best wishes,
