Since Cameo Collaborator is based on Alfresco Community, you need to install and configure Alfresco Community to be able to use Cameo Collaborator.

To be ready for the installation, go to the Download Cameo Collaborator page and obtain the following files:

  • Alfresco Community 5.0.d installer.

    We highly recommend using this particular installer and have a fresh instance of Alfresco Community, even if you already use another instance of any Alfresco edition.

  • cameo-collaborator-share-<version number>.amp
  • cameo-collaborator-repo-<version number>.amp


To upgrade from Cameo Collaborator 18.0 Alpha or Alpha 2, you must uninstall Alfresco Community 5.0.a (configured for Cameo Collaborator 18.0 Alpha or Alpha 2) and install Alfresco Community 5.0.d and configure it for Cameo Collaborator 18.0 SP1 by following the steps of the instructions below. All projects and users from previous version will be unavailable in the new installation.


Before you start the installation, you must make sure the architecture meets the prerequisites for the Alfresco Community installation.

To validate the architecture, follow the steps described in Alfresco Community Documentation. Pay special attention to the Database validation step in order to ensure the prevention of the data loss due to database failure, when using Cameo Collaborator.
