miniBIRCH - workshop installation

This page is only for use in a workshop in which a master copy of BIRCH is already installed on the server. It does NOT create a stand-alone BIRCH implementation.

  1. Download mini-BIRCH framework file
  2. Run birchconfig
  3. Test your installation
  4. Edit local documentation files
