This tutorial will explain how to install Alfresco Community Edition 5.1 in Ubuntu Server 14.04. In this example, Ubuntu Server is a virtual machine made by VirtualBox.
Check out how to install Ubuntu Server on VirtualBox to get ready a virtual machine to install Alfresco Community Edition.
Make two directories:
sudo mkdir /opt/alfsource sudo mkdir /opt/alfresco
Change permissions for the directories.
sudo chmod 777 /opt/alfsource sudo chmod 777 /opt/alfresco
Upload, for instance by sFTP, the binary file alfresco-community-installer-201604-linux-x64.bin to /opt/alfsource directory.
And change permissions for the binary file.
$ chmod 777 /opt/alfsource/alfresco-community-installer-201604-linux-x64.bin
If you run the installer, you will get a warning about libraries needed for LibreOffice.
In order to make work LibreOffice you need some libraries installed on your system:
Install the libraries running the following command:
sudo apt-get install libfontconfig1 libsm6 libice6 libxrender1 libxt6 libcups2
Run the installation. Hence, go to the installation folder and run the binary file.
cd /opt/alfsource sudo ./alfresco-community-installer-201604-linux-x64.bin
You will still get the warning when running the installation. Ignore it and continue.

Alfresco will be launched in Tomcat. So, go to your Web Server domain and check the installation.
Go to Tomcat index page for Alfresco -> http://192.168.56.101:8080
Congratulations!! Alfresco Community Edition is installed in Ubuntu Server.
Let's check if Alfresco is running properly.
cd /opt/alfresco .alfresco.sh status
If either Tomcat or PostgreSQL is not running, start the services with alfresco.sh script.
cd /opt/alfresco .alfresco.sh start
Let's log in Alfresco. Go to share page (http://192.168.56.101:8080/share) with:
