Installation of Shared Hosting with Tomcat 7.0.42 Problems

Post by dutchboy2704 » Fri Jul 22, 2016 8:56 am

Hi There,

Please excuse any noob errors I make; I'm new to the scene.

I am trying to install LogicalDoc CE 7.5 on a shared hosting server that is running Tomcat 7.0.42.

I have verified that the standard tomcat sample file, sample.war, functions correctly in both the JSP and Servlet functions and is accesible.

When I upload the logicaldoc WAR for 7.5, I try to execute that in the same manner as the sample file, but to no avail. I either get a Tomcat 404, or nothing.

I have also tried to deploy the package manually by unzipping it etc, but it still doesn't work?

Has anyone got any ideas of what I can do, or someone who could possibly help me remotely, i.e. via teamviewer or something, to get the setup right?

The help would be much appreciated.

Hi dutchboy,
LogicalDOC 7.5 (both community edition an commercials editions) requires Java 8 in order to work properly.
So since Tomcat 7.0 is not supporting Java 8 at full we recommend Tomcat 8.0.

If you need to run logicaldoc on a shared tomcat you should rename the war to logicaldoc.war
and the app will be deployed to /logicaldoc, so to access it you should compose an address like
http://<SERVER_NAME>:<SERVER_PORT>/logicaldoc

Note: You should assign to the JVM at least 1400 MB (JVM 32 bit) or higher if you have a JVM 64bit

Thanks Agaspa,

That makes sense.

If I can't get the hosting provider to upgrade to Tomcat 8, what is the latest version of LogicalDoc CE that supports Tomcat 7 (Java 7)?

Thanks.

Hi dutchboy,
the latest version of LogicalDOC which supports Java 7 is the 7.4.3
https://sourceforge.net/projects/logica ... 0CE%207.4/

Thanks :)

I downloaded LogicalDoc 7.4.3 and placed it in my tomcat public_html folder. The sample.war file in there still works, but the logicaldoc.war does not. any ideas? I get a tomcat 404 error stating that "requested resource is not available".

Hi dutchboy,
frankly it is difficult to answer your question,
This is because each provider applies its own policies and these are different from provider to provider.
If you are in hosting it is difficult to run complex applications such as Logicaldoc.
In this case the simplest solution is that of the virtual host or you can evaluate our cloud services

Cheers!

Hi Alex,

Thanks for the help.

I decided to go for a VPS solution for myself, and that seems to be working really well.

I have one or two questions, but I'll post them in a new topic.

Thanks,
