Islandora CLAW Installation Notes

This page is a work in progress. More coming soon!

Recently we've installed Islandora CLAW on a development server to test out it's features. Below are notes that were taken during the process.

In general, the scripts that are part of the Islandora CLAW vagrant setup were loosely followed.

System Setup

  • Linux: CentOS Linux release 7.3.1611 (Core)
  • PHP version 7
  • MySQL Ver 15.1 Distrib 5.5.52-MariaDB, for Linux (x86_64) using readline 5.1
  • httpd 2.4.6
  • Tomcat 8 – this is a must


We have a site wide ActiveMQ server available for use, so our install ties into that. I needed to add a few fields to the Islandora Core Settings in the Islandora Drupal Module (Broker username and password).


Updated StompFactory code to set login information in the case of a ActiveMQ broker with authentication turned on.

For SSO we used the Simple SAML PHP auth drupal plugin. We setup Simple SAML PHP as a Service Provider to connect to our local Amherst idP.
