i am trying to install confluence onto a linux account with private tomcat and i am running into issues getting the install working. I think its probably a very quick thing but i am not too familiar with tomcat so i am relying on the instructions here:
My domain is www.x.com (not real but it will help explain the issues and questions)
For the record, tomcat is working as they give me a file called: jsptest.jsp to confirm that its up and running and that works when i go to:
Ok, to to being my installation, the current directory structure on my web provider to start is:
i installed confluence-3.4.3 into the public_html folder and i followed all of the steps on the install but nothing seems to be working. the instructions are a bit confusing so a few questions I want to clarify:
As per step #4, I created a directory called confluenceData in the root and added this to the confluence.init.properties file:
With step #5, here is where i have a few questions. the instructions are to add a file to this directory: conf/Catalina/localhost. i do see under tomcat this conf/Catalina/localhost
i am unclear if i should create the confluence.xml under:
i actually tried both figuring one would work.I then rebooted tomcat. It now says (in 5.4, to Restart Tomcat, and Confluence should be accessible under /confluence/ on your Tomcat server.
Does this mean i should see a directory called confluence under my tomcat folder? Is that is the case, i do not
As per step #6, i updated the file: conf/server.xml.
I think tried to bring up the confluence site:
and nothing seems to work.
if anyone has any suggestions of where to look or any ideas on what i could be doing wrong that would be great.
