How to install Archivematica

archivematicaIn this article we will go through the process of installing Archivematica on Ubuntu.


At the time of writing this article Archivematica is supported on Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS, although support for 16.04 is being tested.

Recommended hardware requirements include:

  • 2 CPU cores
  • 2GB memory
  • 20GB disk space plus 3 to 4 times the amount of data being processed (e.g. if you need to store 100GB content, you will need to allocate 420GB of hard drive space).


  1. Start by downloading Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS Server amd64.
  2. Install Ubuntu (for this article I've installed Ubuntu as a minimal virtual machine).
