Standalone Mode

Standalone operating mode is only useful when you want to run one, and only one {project_name} server instance. It is not usable for clustered deployments and all caches are non-distributed and local-only. It is not recommended that you use standalone mode in production as you will have a single point of failure. If your standalone mode server goes down, users will not be able to log in. This mode is really only useful to test drive and play with the features of {project_name}

Standalone Boot Script

When running the server in standalone mode, there is a specific script you need to run to boot the server depending on your operating system. These scripts live in the bin/ directory of the server distribution.

To boot the server:

$ .../bin/
> ...\bin\standalone.bat

Standalone Configuration

The bulk of this guide walks you through how to configure infrastructure level aspects of {project_name}. These aspects are configured in a configuration file that is specific to the application server that {project_name} is a derivative of. In the standalone operation mode, this file lives in …​/standalone/configuration/standalone.xml. This file is also used to configure non-infrastructure level things that are specific to {project_name} components.

Any changes you make to this file while the server is running will not take effect and may even be overwritten by the server. Instead use the command line scripting or the web console of {appserver_name}. See the {appserver_admindoc_name} for more information.
