I’m running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, Open JDK 7, Tomcat 7, and Apache2, but to be honest I’m fairly noob with all of this. I’m a frontend developer with knowledge of UI A11y, but not much experience with configuration of web servers and applications.
I’ve reached a roadblock in the last step of installation, Setup an Apache frontend with HTTPS. I’m working on a local installation for evaluation purposes. These are the install.sh values I used for installation: (asqatasun_webapp_dir isn’t mentioned in the PDF so it was a guess to set this value)
declare database_user="asqatasun" declare database_passwd="asqaP4sswd" declare database_db="asqatasun" declare database_host="localhost" declare asqatasun_url="http://localhost:8080/asqatasun" declare asqatasun_webapp_dir="/var/lib/tomcat7/webapps/asqatasun" declare tomcat_webapps="/var/lib/tomcat7/webapps" declare tomcat_user="tomcat7" declare asqa_admin_email="firstname.lastname@example.org" declare asqa_admin_passwd="*********" declare firefox_esr_binary_path="/opt/firefox-31.4.0esr/firefox" declare display_port=":99"
After Installation, I can see Asqatasun listed on the Tomcat Web App Manager page, but it’s not started, and won’t start.
I thought I would keep going to the Apache Frontend with HTTPS stage, but then I discovered a roadblock - I don’t currently have a DNS registered domain name for the purpose of this evaluation test.
I thought I would be able to test locally at localhost:8080/asqatasun, but since it’s not running in Tomcat, I get a 404 with this URL. Without a registered domain, I can’t continue to the Apache frontend steps.
Is it possible to evaluate Asqatasun without a registered domain?
Is it normal to not be able to start the Asqatasun web app after the installation steps, or does this indicate that I didn’t configure something correctly?
