Installing Thingworx 7.1 on Linux Ubuntu

July 15, 2016

Dear Sirs

I installed Thingworx platform 7.1 on Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS, following your document “Installing ThingWorx 7.1 Version 1.3”.

I would like to submit you the minor changes I made to some instructions. Without these changes I could not set up Tomcat application server. I used Tomcat 8.5.3.

• Page 20; step 19

Instead of instruction

sudo chmod 640 conf/ *,

I used

sudo chmod -R 770 conf/ .

The instruction conf/ * changes the folders at the same level of conf;

the chmod value 640 blocks Tomcat process.

• Page 21, step 25

About keystore file,

instead of value "{$user.home}/8.5.3/.keystore"

I used "conf/.keystore",

because with original instruction resulting path is /usr/share/tomcat/8.5.3/tomcat/8.5.3

instead of

/usr/share/tomcat/8.5.3

I added also field keyAlias,

with value "tomcat8”,

because in step 23 of page 21 alias parameter was tomcat8,

but default alias of tomcat process was tomcat , instead of tomcat8 .

Thank you for your attention and your suggestions.

Best regards,
