1.1. System Prerequisites
The LOCKSS system runs on a 64-bit Linux host (physical or virtual), with 4 cores (8 or more preferable) and 8 GB of memory (16 GB or more preferable).
1.1.2. Operating System
Many Linux distributions have systemd and can run Docker 18.09 or better. To name a few that are commonly used with the LOCKSS system:
The LOCKSS system runs under a system user named
lockss under a group named
lockss, which you will need to create. For alpha2 only, the lockss user must have sudo privileges.
