Subject Re: War deployemnt
Date Sat, 28 May 2011 15:30:31 GMT
I tried to install the jars one by one though the admin console:
In a fresh germino 2.2.1 installation, I logged in as a system manager,
and from Services/Repository, I installed the required jars. For each
jar I used a group name org.onehippo.cms7. and finally I installed the
war file, through Applications/Deployer page and changed the type to a war instead of the
default "CAR". 
Things went fine, but I can not access the cms, I have set its context
to /cms, but I am getting 404. I coldn't find the logs files to dig

How to install hippo cms to supported application servers is described
in the page with the WAR/EAR files.

Any help will be highly appreciated.

find the link very clear so my advice might not be completely relevant and I only have a minute
so this is not very complete.

 I haven't used it in a while but you should try the applications/plan creator in the admin
console.  I'm not sure of its current capabilities but it will at least give you the framework
for a deployment plan.  If the wizard doesn't help you add dependencies to your jars you can
look the geronimo documentation on the xml format.

real-time help on the #geronimo irc channel at but that depends on finding
someone who is there at the right time.
