is there a way for students to use openLCA as a team (as it is possible with the collaboration server I guess) for free? We are four people and we need it for a project this semester, but we can't afford to buy a collaboration server, maybe it works by creating a database that is not saved as local but as remote? I couldn't find anything on the internet how to work with the remote-database and therefore doesn't really know what to do woth it.

Thank you and kind regards,

Hi Josef,

thanks - the Collaboration Server is free software and you can run it on an own server. Maybe you can ask your university to set it up?

Best wishes,

Thank you for your help!
Right now I'm trying to set up the server myself as my lecturers don't have experience with the server as well.
As far as I got into the setup I read that I need Tomcat 8, Java 8 , Elastic Search as well as the downloads for the collaboration server itself, am I right?

Thank you! I'll try to get it done by myself now, but I'm afraid I need to come back for help later as I am also no experienced :D
