ContentsThis article describes the installation of a web server (Apache Tomcat) and the deployment of the innolist.war (Download) using Microsoft Windows as operating system.
For other web servers or operation system the deployment should work similar, for details please see the installation/configuration manual of the web server used.
We suggest a 64-bit distribution, in this description "64-bit Windows zip" is used.
Extract the Zip-File into a new directory. The folder structure should be similar to:
The port configuration is not mandatory, there are already default ports configured in the configuration file conf/server.xml.
The default ports are:
The ports must not be used by other programs. The port 8080 is used by default to connect using a browser (for productive environments maybe port 80).
Apache Tomcat deploys all .war files in the folder webapps/ when starting up. Please copy the war-File into the folder, e.g.:
Note: If the file name (here: innolist.war) differs, the deployment will only be reachable with this changed url path.
InnoList saves configuration (and data, as configured) in the personal directory of the operating system user that executes the web server. Depending on the operating system the personal directory differs:
If necessary the directory for configuration/data may be changed in the configuration file system.xml.
One important requirement is
Windows: By executing bin/startup.bat Apache Tomcat is started.
The console window for the instance of tomcat is shown.
Are these lines
INFORMATION (...) Deployment of web application archive (...) has finished in (...) ms
INFORMATION (...) Server startup in (...) msvisible in the output then the starting was successful.
The application is then reachable over http://localhost:8080/innolist/ .
Windows: By pressing Ctrl + c in the console window Apache Tomcat is shut down.
If you want to set another Browser-Icon for your installation, you can replace the file with an icon of your choice:
