I was wondering if I could hide or remove ':8080/share' at the end of my URL (e.g. myAlfrescoURL.com:8080/share)? I think its not an advisable URL to give to the business users. Thanks.
you need to 1. change the port of Tomcat from 8080 to 80 ,please refer to http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4756039/how-to-change-the-port-of-tomcat-from-8080-to-802.set share default application in tomcat ,please refer to http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14325171/setting-default-application-in-tomcat-7
I got stuck on step 2. I checked the link you gave, and followed the First Method, it says "first shutdown your tomcat [from the bin directory (sh shutdown.sh)] then you must delete all the content of your tomcat webapps folder (rm -fr *) then rename your WAR file to ROOT.war finally start your tomcat [from the bin directory (sh startup.sh)]"
rm -fr *
After deleting all the content in my webapps folder (ALF_DIR/tomcat/webapps/), how can I rename WAR file to ROOT.war? when in fact the folder was empty.
Also I need your advice to which method I should do based on the link in step 2. Thanks.
There are three options present in this page Setting default application in tomcat 7 - Stack Overflow
you can just pick one ,you don't need to do all 3 methods.
Still no luck, this time I try doing the 3rd Method, I created a context file ROOT.xml outside the ALF_DIR/tomcat/webapps folder.
Inside my ROOT.xml :
<?xml version="1.0"?> <Context reloadable="true" path="" docBase="/opt/alfresco-community/tomcat/webapps"/>
After saving, I restart Alfresco and try accessing myAlfrescoURL.com, and it takes me to XAMPP dashboard.
if you have installed XAMPP on your share server ,you need to change XAMPP apache server port to other free port and leave port 80/443 to share tomcat.
I was able to do it, thanks for your help. Also I did change the ports in Alfresco, because it points to 8080 by default.
