Problems on the tomcat installation documentation

    Details

    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Closed
    • Resolution: Won't Fix
    • Affects Version/s: 6.0.5 GA, 6.0.6 GA
    • Fix Version/s: --Sprint 11/12, 6.2.0 CE M2
    • Component/s: Documentation
    • Labels:
      None
    • Environment:
      tomcat 6, liferay 6 (EE)

      Description

      The documentation for installing Liferay on Tomcat 6 are not complete or false:

      • when editing the root.xml file,
        <Resource
        ...
        url="jdbc:mysql://localhost/lportal?useUnicode=true&characterEncoding=UTF-8"
        ...
        />

      should be replaced by

      <Resource
      ...
      url="jdbc:mysql://localhost/lportal?useUnicode=true&characterEncoding=UTF-8"
      ...
      />

      • The suggested import package for jaas is wrong.
        it is not com.liferay.portal.security.jaas but com.liferay.portal.kernel.security.jaas
      • To work properly, the tomcat installation should have those additional dependencies:
        jta.jar
        mail.jar
        persistence.jar
      • The permGen space is likely to be extended :
        add XX:MaxPermSize=256m in catalina.bat/catalina.sh
      • a portal-ext.properties should be added at the root of the installation.
