See chapter Preparations of multiple WebOffice Applications of different versions if you want to use WebOffice applications of different versions.

Stop Apache Tomcat Service

To add another application the Apache Tomcat application must be stopped under the Windows Services. Alternatively this step can be executed by the configure tomcat application if this software is installed.

Copy of the existing WebOffice application

Navigate to the directory webapps of your Apache Tomcat application path (e.g C:\Tomcat\webapps)

Application folder "webapps" in Apache Tomcat directory

Copy the directory of the WebOffice 10.9 R3 application and paste it in the same directory under a different name (e.g WebOffice104_test).

Copy and paste of an existing WebOffice 10.9 R3 application directory and rename this folder

Adjustment of the Apache Tomcat Connector settings

If an Apache Tomcat Connector is in use the new application name (WebOffice105_test) has to be added to the specific configuration file. The Apache Tomcat Connector is responsible for forwarding requests from the IIS (Internet Information Server) to Port 80 to the Apache Tomcat port 8080. The application name of the newly created WebOffice application must be added accordingly to the following file <PATH_TO_TOMCAT>\conf\uriworkermap.properties. Afterward a restart of the IIS administration service and the WWW publishing service and the Apache Tomcat service has to be done.

Creation of a new application profile

Within the WebOffice author the basic settings have to be adjusted according to the new application. After configuration of the application profile the name of the application profile within the lower area of the WebOffice author. Additionally the working directory (e.g C:\Tomcat\webapps\WebOffice104_test\WEB-INF\classes\configuration\projects) and the call of the WebOffice application must be adapted accordingly (e.g. http://w-ws-krejc/WebOffice105_test/).

For more information on how to use the User Management Admin Web interface, see chapter User Mangement Admin Web and its subchapters.

More information of the configuration of the UserManagement within the application configuration can be found in the chapter User Management and the sub chapters.

More information of the installation of the User Management can be found in the chapter WebOffice User Management (application server).

 

If a new user management database has been set up, the basic settings must be changed in the WebOffice author the basic settings for the newly created WebOffice 10.9 R3 application must be adjusted accordingly. In the Application profile of the Basic settings activate the User administration. Additionally, the corresponding connection data to the user management database must be specified.

Creation of another full text search application

If a full text search is already defined in the copied application configuration, the following steps must be carried out accordingly. To use the full text search of the new WebOffice application, another WebOffice FTS-Index must be set up. The necessary setup steps can be found in chapter Set up several Cores in WebOffice FTS-Index.

ACHTUNG!

The scenario of using a FTS-Index for multiple WebOffice 10.9 R3 applications is NOT RECOMMENDED by VertiGIS GmbH! ONE FTS-Index application should be used by ONE WebOffice 10.9 R3 application.

Adding of a new output directory within the IIS (Internet Information Server) and adjustment of the WebOffice 10.9 R3 application configuration

If a WebOffice output directory is configured in the copied WebOffice 10.9 R3 application configuration, it has to be changed accordingly. For this, the first step must be a new virtual Directory in the IIS. To do this, assign an appropriate alias and select the path of the output directory of the newly created WebOffice application (e.g <PATH_TO_NEW_WEBOFFICEAPPLICATION>\output)
