 1.  rename the folder /ROOT/ to something else, or delete it;
 2.  put ROOT.war in webapps folder
 3.  delete other OpenCms folders (ex. webapps/opencms, or your webapps/test)
 4.  restart Tomcat
 5.  then you can install OpenCms from the begining http://your_tomcat:8080/root/setup

Good idea but it doesn't work for me !

I try 2 things:
1 - rename the first occurrence of opencms in /opencms/opencms
2 - delete the occurrence.

So after unzip in my dev folder the .zip, I rename the file opencms.war in
1- test.war
2 - ROOT.war .
Then I run Tomcat to deploy the .war. And I have:
1 - the deployement is in a repertory /test/ it's ok, but
2 - no deployement made with ROOT.war.
Then in case of 1 - I run the setup with the url http:://mylocalhost/test/setup and it works until step 9, it breaks, I have this:

<html><body>HTTP Status 500<br/>

OpenCms is not properly initialized!<br/>

Please make sure that the OpenCms setup wizard has been run once and is disabled now.<br/>


And in case of 2 - I tried, in order to delete the /opencms, to move the contents /WEB-INF /META-INF and /setup directly in the folder where I have unzip, then run Tomcat, then the setup with http:://mylocalhost/setup is correctly runed, but the error is one page login : http:://mylocalhost/opencms/system/login It doesn't work, it want to find http:://mylocalhost/myfolder/opencms/system/login...

Could someone explain how the root application is registered? Thanks

you have to rename the opencms.war to be a ROOT application before installation,

opencms.war -> ROOT.war

then install inside the tomcat webapps dir as usual. that will remove one of the opencms, since you can talk to the opencms as ROOT application so you need only "/"

After that you can change the servlet mapping in the /WEB-INF/web.xml and you can give the servlet any name you want, e.g. /cms or whatever you like,

voilá you can access the login on


hope that helps

Me too. Not IIS but Apache.
I'm using various Virtualhost sections in httpd.conf with Proxy and
ProxyReverse, that map to different ports/connectors in Tomcat server.xml.
And it requires some tweaking of opencms-importexport.xml and

There was a howto by Sebastian Himberger AFAIK, that can be found in the
list archives.
