Jiglu server installation

Package installation

The Jiglu RPM packages can be downloaded from https://www.jiglu.com/download/. Copy the packages to a directory on the server and then use:

rpm -U jiglu-version.rpm jiglu-webapp-version.rpm

Changing version for the version number of the RPMs.

Configuration

There is a large amount of flexibility in configuring Jiglu for different architectures and installation sizes. This is controlled through the /etc/jiglu/bootstrap.properties file. At a minimum the following properties in the file need to be changed:

com.jiglu.web.protocol

The protocol by which end-users access the site. This will normally be https.

com.jiglu.web.host

The host at which end-users access the site. This needs to match the value you set in Tomcat’s server.xml.

com.jiglu.web.port

The port at which end-users access the site. This will normally be 443 to match the https protocol above.

com.jiglu.mail.domain

The domain at which email messages are sent to the Jiglu system.

com.jiglu.mail.outgoing.host

The hostname of the mail server that will send on email messages from the Jiglu system.

com.jiglu.mail.outgoing.port

The port of the mail server that will send on email messages from the Jiglu system. For a mail submission agent, such as sendmail or postfix, running on the same machine this will normally be 587. For external hosts it will normally be 25.

com.jiglu.jdbc.url

The JDBC URL for connecting to the database server.

com.jiglu.jdbc.password

The password for the Jiglu database user at the database server.

com.jiglu.jdbc.ownerPasswordThe password for the Jiglu owner user at the database server.
