Run your Tomcat on OpenShift

This git repository helps you get up and running quickly with a Tomcat 7.0.42 installation on OpenShift.

Create a Do It Yourself (DIY) app on OpenShift

Create an account and install the command-line client tools.

Create a DIY application: rhc app create tomcat diy-0.1

Get Tomcat running

Grab this quickstart project and make it work for you!

cd tomcat
git remote add upstream -m master git://
git pull -s recursive -X theirs upstream master
git push

That's it, you can now checkout your tomcat at: http://tomcat-$

By placing WARs (either WAR archives or exploded WARs) in the diy/tomcat/webapps folder, those applications will be deployed and redeployed upon each git push. Likewise, applications (including the sample applications provided by Tomcat) can be deleted from that folder so they will no longer be deployed.

The default managing account is tomcat/openshift; this can be changed by altering the diy/tomcat/conf/tomcat-users.xml file, committing the change within your secure OpenShift Git account and issuing another git push.

Forking this Quickstart to use a newer Tomcat version
