Installing the MySQL CDW

  • Drivers are already provided for MySQL.
  • Extract to a temporary directory. This file is included with the distribution. If you are a developer, the contents of this zip are located at $PROJECT_HOME/apps/cdw_mysql.
  • Windows users MUST create a file named c:\my.cnf with these contents:
    set-variable= lower_case_table_names=0
  • cd to the directory you extracted the zip file.
  • Run:
    >mysql -u [adminuser] -p
    >password: *****
    mysql> create database goon;
    mysql> use goon;
    mysql> source goon.sql
    mysql> quit 
  • Edit the Cofax config file for database access. $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/content/WEB-INF/web.xml. If you are a developer, instead edit $PROJECT_HOME/apps/content/WEB-INF/web.xml and run ant.
  • Start Tomcat. Run the $TOMCAT_HOME/bin/startup.bat command.
