Debian 10 | .WAR install | Alfresco 6.2 does not start

Jump to solution

Hi,

try to install Alfresco WARs on Debian 10 without success. Maybe someone has an idea?

Copy and restart tomcat.
/var/lib/tomcat9/webapps/alfresco.war
/var/lib/tomcat9/webapps/share.war

Remove alfresco.war and share.war after deployed.

root@dmstest:/usr/share/tomcat9# ls -l /var/lib/tomcat9/webapps/
insgesamt 12
drwxr-x--- 10 tomcat tomcat 4096 Jul 14 12:40 alfresco
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Jul 13 13:49 ROOT
drwxr-x--- 14 tomcat tomcat 4096 Jul 14 12:41 share

mkdir -p /usr/share/tomcat9/shared/classes/
touch /usr/share/tomcat9/shared/classes/alfresco-global.properties

cp -v /usr/share/java/mariadb-java-client.jar /var/lib/tomcat9/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/lib
chown tomcat:tomcat /var/lib/tomcat9/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/lib/mariadb-java-client.jar

Thank you, this was the problem!

I have no idea why tomcat does not accept the alfresco-global.properties file in /var/lib/tomcat9/shared/classes/

[2020-07-13 13:49:08] [info] CATALINA_BASE:         /var/lib/tomcat9
[2020-07-13 13:49:08] [info] CATALINA_HOME:         /usr/share/tomcat9

/etc/tomcat9/catalina.properties

shared.loader=${catalina.base}/shared/classes,${catalina.base}/shared/lib/*.jar

Here it work:

/var/lib/tomcat9/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/classes/alfresco-global.properties

Your Tomcat configuration does not allow for alfresco-global.properties to be picked up. As a result, Alfresco still tries to use the MySQL DB driver that is configured by default. You need to configure your Tomcat server in a way that alfresco-global.properties is accessible from the Alfresco web applications classpath.
