Dear all,
If you want to use Collect in a multi-user environment, you can think about installing it a server accessible remotely (or in the same local network) from different client computers.
Collect is's just a web application that runs in a Application Server (e.g. Apache Tomcat).
You need to follow these steps:

  • install Apache Tomcat 7+ application server:
  • install Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 8+ (download Java)
  • install PostgreSQL 8+ (download PostgreSQL)
  • create an empty database called "collect"
  • download:
  • the latest version of the PostgreSQL JDBC driver
  • the latest version of the SQLite JDBC driver
  • the latest version of the Apache Commons DBCP Component
  • put them into tomcat/libs folder
  • download the latest version of the Collect war file
  • put the war file into the tomcat/webapps folder and rename it into collect.war
  • download the sample collect.xml file
  • modify it with the correct database connection parameters
  • put it inside tomcat/conf/Catalina/localhost

Update a multi-user installation of Collect
If you have already installed Collect for a multi-user environment and you want to update it to the latest version, follow these steps:

  • shutdown Tomcat
  • take a full backup of your database (if you are using PostgreSQL, use PGAdmin and take a backup with Custom format)
  • move the file collect.war that is inside the tomcat/webapps folder into another location outside of the Tomcat folder
  • download the latest version of the Collect war file
  • put it inside tomcat/webapps folder and rename it into collect.war
  • startup Tomcat
