The OpenClinica software uses the Apache Tomcat Java application server.

  1. The current directory on your system should be /usr/local/oc/install. If it is not, make it the current directory by running:

    cd /usr/local/oc/install

  2. Install Tomcat by running the following:

    tar -zxvf apache-tomcat-*
    mv apache-tomcat-6.0.32 /usr/local/
    ln -s /usr/local/apache-tomcat-6.0.32 /usr/local/tomcat

    /usr/sbin/adduser tomcat

  3. Move the web apps provided with Tomcat that are not needed by OpenClinica to another location by running:

    mkdir /usr/local/tomcat/oldwebapps
    mv /usr/local/tomcat/webapps/* /usr/local/tomcat/oldwebapps

Tomcat is now installed.
