Install an Annotea server

It is both possible and highly encouraged for collaborative groups to install their own metadata server. The Annotea server code is available for such purposes and can be installed by following the Annotea service installation instructions.

The Annotea server is a general purpose RDF store, with a general Algae query interface and a couple of optimized queries for annotations, threads etc. The RDF store is built on top of a general SQL store. The server implementation consists of perl code scripts that are activated from the server's CGI-interface.

The version history for the Annotea server explains the changes between the different server versions and what actions are needed when upgrading a server.
