8.7 Installation guide


The following installation guide for the Goobi viewer refers to Ubuntu Linux 20.04. It is written as a step-by-step guide from top to bottom, meaning that settings and configurations build on each other. If the order is not followed, certain commands may fail.

The domain name used in this manual is VIEWER.EXAMPLE.ORG and must be adapted to your own DNS name.


First, log on to the server on which the Goobi viewer is to be installed and obtain root rights:

sudo -i

Then generate a password for the Goobi viewer database and a token and store them as a variable in the session. The DNS name is also stored there:

export TOKEN=$(uuidgen)

Now install the following packages:

apt -y install git maven

Finally, a temporary installation directory must be created and the Goobi viewer Connector, Goobi viewer Indexer and Goobi viewer Core Config Repository cloned. This includes the files required for the installation:

mkdir -p $install
cd $install
git clone https://github.com/intranda/goobi-viewer-connector.git
git clone https://github.com/intranda/goobi-viewer-indexer.git
git clone https://github.com/intranda/goobi-viewer-core-config.git

It is recommended to have set a DNS entry for the server at this time.

Variables and aliases

Add the following aliases to /root/.bash_aliases:

cat << "EOF" >/root/.bash_aliases
alias cata='journalctl -u tomcat9 -n 1000 -f'
alias ct='chown tomcat:tomcat *'
alias ctr='chown -R tomcat:tomcat *'
alias ind='tail -n 1000 -f /opt/digiverso/logs/indexer.log'
alias vl='tail -n 1000 -f /opt/digiverso/logs/viewer.log'

Adopt the changes in the current session:

. /root/.bashrc

Install packages

Install the following packages including all dependencies:

apt -y install openjdk-11-jdk-headless tomcat9 mariadb-server apache2 ttf-mscorefonts-installer unzip

MySQL / MariaDB

Goobi viewer requires a database and its own user. This is created with the following command:

mysql -e "CREATE DATABASE viewer;
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON viewer.* TO 'viewer'@'localhost' WITH GRANT OPTION;

The database schema is created automatically the first time the application is started.


This point is only relevant if Goobi workflow is/is also installed and this is not done on the same machine.

Then the /opt/digiverso/viewer folder must be exported to the Goobi workflow server. NFS is used for this. The adjustments for this are here:

export IP_GOOBI= # IP-Adresse des Goobi workflow Servers
apt install nfs-kernel-server -y
echo "/opt/digiverso/viewer/hotfolder ${IP_GOOBI}/,sync,no_subtree_check,all_squash,anonuid=$(id -u tomcat),anongid=$(id -g tomcat))" >> /etc/exports
systemctl restart nfs-kernel-server.service

The port for NFSv4 is TCP 2049. If UFW is used:

ufw allow from $IP_GOOBI proto tcp to any port 2049

The adjustments for Goobi workflow can be found in the installation instructions there:

Create directory structure

The following commands create the necessary folder structure:

mkdir -p /opt/digiverso/{config/bin,indexer,logs,tomcat-lib,viewer/{abbyy,cmdi,deleted_mets,hotfolder,media,orig_lido,orig_denkxweb,success,ugc,alto,cms_media,error_mets,indexed_lido,mix,pdf,tei,updated_mets,cache,config/{PDFTitlePage,watermark},fulltext,indexed_mets,oai/token,ptif,themes,wc,bin}}
chown -R tomcat. /opt/digiverso


The installation of the required components is described below.

Apache Solr

Download the current Solr 8.x version and unzip the installation script:

cd $install
wget http://archive.apache.org/dist/lucene/solr/8.5.2/solr-8.5.2.tgz
tar -xzf solr-8.5.2.tgz solr-8.5.2/bin/install_solr_service.sh --strip-components=2

Now create the folder /opt/digiverso/solr and install it there:

mkdir -p /opt/digiverso/solr/
./install_solr_service.sh solr-8.5.2.tgz -i /opt/digiverso/solr -d /opt/digiverso/solr -u solr -s solr -p 8983 -n

Now adjust the limits for the user solr:

cat << "EOF" >/etc/security/limits.d/solr.conf
solr hard nofile 65535
solr soft nofile 65535
solr hard nproc 65535
solr soft nproc 65535

To use streaming expressions Solr is not installed in the standalone version but in the SolrCloud variant. However, we only use one node. For the configuration Zookeeper is used:

apt install -y zookeeperd

Zookeeper now introduces Solr and increases the default memory for the JVM:

cd /opt/digiverso/solr/solr/
sudo -u solr bin/solr zk upconfig -n goobiviewer -d server/solr/configsets/goobiviewer/

The JTS library is still needed for the search for geocoordinates:

wget -O /opt/digiverso/solr/solr/server/solr-webapp/webapp/WEB-INF/lib/jts-core-1.17.0.jar https://github.com/locationtech/jts/releases/download/1.17.0/jts-core-1.17.0.jar
chown solr. /opt/digiverso/solr/solr/server/solr-webapp/webapp/WEB-INF/lib/jts-core-1.17.0.jar

Finally, start the service and create a new collection for the Goobi viewer with its configuration files:Solr in Tomcat:

systemctl start solr
sudo -u solr bin/solr create -c collection1 -n goobiviewer

Goobi viewer Indexer

First the application is compiled. Then copy the required files to /opt/digiverso/indexer/ and rename the indexerconfig_solr.xml to solr_indexerconfig.xml, control the Tomcat port and replace C: with /opt if necessary. Finally the systemd service unit is activated:

mvn -f $install/goobi-viewer-indexer/goobi-viewer-indexer package
mv -t /opt/digiverso/indexer/solrIndexer.jar $install/goobi-viewer-indexer/goobi-viewer-indexer/target/solr-Indexer.jar
sed -e 's/8081/8983/g' -e 's/C:/\/opt/g' $install/goobi-viewer-indexer/goobi-viewer-indexer/target/classes/indexerconfig_solr.xml -e 's/collection2/collection1/g' > /opt/digiverso/indexer/solr_indexerconfig.xml
mv $install/goobi-viewer-indexer/goobi-viewer-indexer/src/main/resources/other/solrindexer.service /etc/systemd/system/
systemctl enable solrindexer.service

Goobi viewer

Stop the Tomcat service:

systemctl stop tomcat9

Then put the following file to /etc/tomcat9/Catalina/localhost/viewer.xml:

sed -e "s|PW_SQL_VIEWER|${PW_SQL_VIEWER}|g" << "EOF" >/etc/tomcat9/Catalina/localhost/viewer.xml
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
webAppMount="/WEB-INF/lib" />
webAppMount="/resources/themes" />
validationQuery="SELECT SQL_NO_CACHE 1"
url="jdbc:mysql://localhost/viewer?characterEncoding=UTF-8&amp;autoReconnect=true&amp;autoReconnectForPools=true" />

Now adjust the file rights so that the file is not deleted with an update:

chown -R root.tomcat /etc/tomcat9/Catalina
chmod -R g-w /etc/tomcat9/Catalina

The theme is integrated as an external theme:

mkdir -p /opt/digiverso/viewer/themes/
cd /opt/digiverso/viewer/themes/
git clone https://github.com/intranda/goobi-viewer-theme-reference.git

Now compile the Goobi viewer and move it to the expected location in the file system:

mvn -f /opt/digiverso/viewer/themes/goobi-viewer-theme-reference/goobi-viewer-theme-reference package
mv /opt/digiverso/viewer/themes/goobi-viewer-theme-reference/goobi-viewer-theme-reference/target/viewer.war /var/lib/tomcat9/webapps/viewer.war

Finally move the last configuration files and restart the Tomcat service:

mv $install/goobi-viewer-core-config/goobi-viewer-core-config/src/main/resources/install/* /opt/digiverso/viewer/config/
chown -R tomcat: /opt/digiverso/viewer/
systemctl start tomcat9

Connector - (OAI & SRU)

For the installation of the OAI and SRU interface the application has to be compiled first:

mvn -f $install/goobi-viewer-connector/goobi-viewer-connector package

After that the war file and the configuration files have to be moved to the expected location:

mv $install/goobi-viewer-connector/goobi-viewer-connector/target/M2M.war /opt/digiverso/viewer/bin/M2M.war
mv $install/goobi-viewer-connector/goobi-viewer-connector/target/M2M/WEB-INF/classes/*.xsl /opt/digiverso/viewer/oai/
chown -R tomcat: /opt/digiverso/viewer/bin/
chown -R tomcat: /opt/digiverso/viewer/oai/

Then put the following file to /etc/tomcat9/Catalina/localhost/M2M.xml:

cat << "EOF" >/etc/tomcat/Catalina/localhost/M2M.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Extraction of config_oai.xml:

unzip -p /opt/digiverso/viewer/bin/M2M.war WEB-INF/classes/config_oai.xml > /opt/digiverso/viewer/config/config_oai.xml

Adjust the settings to the correct URL so that the resolver links work and ensure that the port of the tomcat on which the Solr service is running is 8080:

sed -i -e "s|http://localhost:8080/viewer/oai|http://${VIEWER_HOSTNAME}/viewer/oai|g" -e "s|http://localhost:8080/viewer/resolver|http://${VIEWER_HOSTNAME}/viewer/resolver|g" -e "s|http://localhost:8080/viewer/piresolver|http://${VIEWER_HOSTNAME}/viewer/piresolver|g" -e "s|http://localhost:8081/solr|http://localhost:8983/solr|g" /opt/digiverso/viewer/config/config_oai.xml

The Goobi viewer has a backend. The following command inserts a test account with the user name goobi@intranda.com and the password viewer into the database:
