Runtime requirements

Build requirements

To build and install converter

  • clone project

  • execute in project root

    mvn package

  • copy application webapp/target/converter.war into CATALINA_HOME/webapps

  • copy and modify application configuration file webapp/conf/ into CATALINA_HOME/conf

    • to create and initialize internal database set configuration parameter database.init = true before first startup . Don't forget to set it to false for subsequent server starts.
  • start server and go to http://host:port/converter

Converter can work as standalone application or paired with Nginx as reverse proxy frontend. Configuration with proxy highly recommended for public installation with high traffic. Nginx must be compiled with X-accel module (standard).

You can’t perform that action at this time.
