All installations of the Service Manager install the Tomcat and MySQL applications using the same basic set of parameters. The defaults provided by the installation process are designed to be unique so that they do not interfere with existing installations of either product. However, you should check these parameters before installation to ensure that you do not experience any problems.
The common parameters are divided into those applying to the Tomcat server, and the MySQL server (Repository Configuration):
Tomcat Server Options
Tomcat Server port — the default port that the Tomcat server will use when listening for connections. If you change this option, then the port that you need to use when connecting to the Service Manager must be modified accordingly. The default value is 18080.
If you are not currently running a web server on port 80
you may find it more convenient to use the well known
port rather than
18080. Since port
80 is the default for a web server,
you can then open the dashboard without specifying a
Tomcat Shutdown port —the port used by the management scripts that is used to shut the Tomcat server down when you need to stop the Service Manager. The default value is 18005.
Tomcat SSL Port — the standard port used to connect to the Service Manager when you want to use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encrypted communication. The default value is 18443.
Repository Configuration (MySQL Server)
Repository Username — the user name created and used
to store information within the MySQL server to hold the
information used by the Service Manager. In normal use,
you should not need to use or modify this information, but
it may be required if you have a support issue. The
default value is
Repository User password — the password to be used for the Repository Username. This should be set to a secure password so that the repository data is secure.
The information that you configure during installation will always
be recorded within the
configuration_report.txt file within the
installation directory for the Service Manager.
Because the information stored within the
configuration_report.txt file is in plain
text, the Repository user name and password information are also
exposed within this file. Make sure that the installation
directory and file are secure that they can only be accessed by
those users who would need to use the information.
