Hi, we like to run collect and calc on an Ubuntu Server. As we cannot use the bitrocket installers provided without gui we try to directly deploy the collec.war files on a tomcat 7 instance. However, this is currently not working, see logfile below. Are there any information available on how to setup the server to get collect running? What addional files are needed? Which java version (currently we use open-jdk). According to the collect.log file there is an issue to resolve [jdbc]

Any suggestions are welcome!

Greetings Paul

collect.log: Caused by: javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: Name [jdbc/collectDs] is not bound in this Context. Unable to find [jdbc].

Hi Paul,
you almost completed the configuration of Collect... just other few steps are left.
First of all, Collect works with the only JRE 7+ (JDK is not required).
What is still missing is the "context" configuration file that describes the configuration to the database. You need to create a file called collect.xml inside the folder .../tomcat/conf/Catalina/localhost. An example of this file can be found here: collect.xml and here you can find instructions on how to modify it in order to use Collect with a PostgreSQL database: Collect Server Setup
Let us know if you have any other questions.

Many thanks,
