Developer Resources

To use FOROST to present your collection, you may do one of two things: host your data on the FOROST server or host it yourself. If you opt to host it yourself you may download the developers kit here. Your server needs to be running PHP, and version 5 or later is preferred. When finished with deployment, send completed metadata template to socorro AT forost DOT org or raul AT forost DOT org to initiate connections to you site.
