Getting JSPWiki working in Sun Java System Web Server 7
By bounds on Dec 01, 2006
I just got JSPWiki working in SJSWS 7. I'm creating this wiki really for myself. I try to be organized, but I tend to have various pieces of information scattered across multiple systems. Text files here, pdf doc there, ... In whatever medium I use, its organized, the hard part is just discovering where I put it. My goal is to move all my various tips and tricks to a Wiki. Since I do travel, I'll have the ability to always update it, wherever I go.
Now, Getting JSPWiki installed wasn't too bad. It didn't quite go as simply as the guide. I do want to thank Siriam and Marina for creating this doc. The trouble I had was that when I tried to start the WebServer, I would get multiple Java errors concerning the jspwiki.properties file. Since the application never started, I couldn't use the /JSPWiki/Install.jsp to set my properties. All I had to do to fix this was edit the jspwiki.properties file beforehand. Make sure to set you Working directory, Page directory, and Staging directory. Also make sure these directories exist and permissions are properly set. With that fix I was 90% complete. The only additional step was to follow the instructions Joe Mocker has for getting JAAS configured correctly.
Everything is up and running! Now I'm just trying to get some theming done.
