2 dev installs on one application server

We have one existing 6.8 install running on port 8080 on Linux RH4 in one directory structure.
I attempted to install a second 6.8 to a different directory structure, and followed the server install notes to change to port 8081 (dev2).

One dev instance will run but not both at the same time. Is tihs possible?

Would I have needed to run the JAR install doing a full install (not an upgrade). I did not choose a full option just in case it would overlay an existing install. The "Cascade Server" directory separation seems to work partially.

The cascade.sh stop, in one directory, stopped both java sessions, not surprisingly.
Thanks in advance,

Michael Yee

    Hi Michael,

    My guess is that there may be one more port change needed in order to make this work. Aside from changing the HTTP port (which you already have done), try doing the following for your second instance:

    • Edit the file \tomcat\conf\server.xml
    • Locate the shutdown port. It will look something like this (~line 20):
        <Server port="8205" shutdown="SHUTDOWN">
    • Modify that port to be different from the default

    As long as both the HTTP ports and the shutdown ports are different, both instances should be able to start. If you continue to have problems after making this change, it could be due to memory allocation problems depending on how your RAM is configured. If you suspect something else is going on, please attach a zip file of the contents of the folder \tomcat\logs from the second dev instance.
