Subject Re: Archiva logging configuration for RHEL 6
Date Fri, 09 Mar 2012 07:19:46 GMT
Hi John,

Give the tomcat download a go IMO.  if you're using centos, then you're not really
bound to RHEL licensing for support.
I just threw that bug report in there because it may be related from some docs I came across
 last week.

Unzip into /opt and hack the init script vars.
Use this init script if you don't want to tamper what you've already got.

I usually run non-distro java and non-distro apache - just to stay 100% jdk/container, "just
in case" of peculiarities.
This way you can test the apache d/l (current version) vs. redhat's version without conflicting...

I'm a fairly noob archiva user of 18 months but don't really do anything substantial with
it yet - it just serves up a few poms/jars.

re: continuum, it sounds like you're running through the packt book - true?

# tomcat
# chkconfig:
# description:  Start up the Tomcat servlet engine.

# Source function library.
#. /etc/init.d/functions

case "$1" in
        if [ -f $CATALINA_HOME/bin/ ];
            echo $"Starting Tomcat"
            #/bin/su tomcat $CATALINA_HOME/bin/
        if [ -f $CATALINA_HOME/bin/ ];
            echo $"Stopping Tomcat"
            #/bin/su tomcat $CATALINA_HOME/bin/
        echo $"Usage: $0 {start|stop}"
        exit 1

exit $RETVAL
