Ticket #906 (closed enhancement: fixed)

Dispersed GS3 on windows (setting up GS3 in labs)

Reported by: ak19 Owned by: ak19
Priority: moderate Milestone: 3.08 Release
Component: Installation Severity: minor
Keywords: Cc:


Install GS3 with the binary installer, then set the following 4 properties in build.properties:

set using.user.web=true

set web.home=C:/your/writable/user/web

set gsdl3home.isreadonly=true

set gsdl3.writablehome=${java.io.tmpdir}/greenstone/web





Changes are for windows and tested. The DVD mode (non-writable DVD, collections on DVD, tomcat running from TMP) still works and is separate from this. Setting web.home such that greenstone is a tomcat webapp should also still work, because the modified code works around the existing code and functionality, leaving that still intact.

A further change (fix for spaces in filepath):


Uses the correct way of allowing spaces in filepath when using a batch For loop. This fixes the change of revision 30400 that had to be undone in revision 30532.


Also uses the batch way of allowing spaces in filepath.
