Hello OpenCMS List,
My company is interested in evaluating OpenCMS ; it looks quite good and
may fit both a coming project and, generally, an area of increasing
interest for us !
Unfortunately, I am having some difficulty in the system's initial
installation. Having followed all steps specified on the "Install" page,
when I reach the point of executing the setup wizard with
http://localhost:8080/opencms/ocsetup, the wizard appears and, when
executed in either normal or advanced mode, seems to go into a loop : it
runs endlessly and never finishes the install ... Needless to say, OpenCMS
is not in a usable state when I interrupt the process after 30 minutes or so !
I have downloaded OpenCMS version 4.4.6 (assuming that a stable version is
best for an evaluation and the following are installed on the system :
- Sun jdk v1.3.1_02
- Tomcat v4.01
- MySQL v3.23.40
The OS is Win2K Advanced Server. We are planning to migrate as soon and as
much of our system as possible to Linux and open source software, but the
process is progressive and we _do_ have clients with religious preferences.
Aside from the above installation issue, my other preliminary question is
in reference to how closely OpenCMS is tied into MySQL. Is it a true JDBC
relationship, where the system is entirely data store agnostic or is MySQL
required ? If so, can an external data store be used for a user's work and
pages while MySQL serves for OpenCMS's internal data ?
Thank you very much for the attention. We are looking forward to the
evaluation and, hopefully, a collaboration ...
