Creating a non-standard ORCA installation

Overview

Under some circumstances it may be necessary to create multiple ORCA containers on the same host or create an ORCA container on non-standard port. This document describes the procedure.

Instructions

# Pick a port (e.g. 12080)

#. Create a database on the host called orca12080 and fill it in according to this (steps 0-3):

It's ok to retain the same user ('orca') on the new database.

#. Create a copy of webapp/ directory and modify the pointers to the database in the following files:

(see last FAQ): https://geni-orca.renci.org/trac/wiki/FAQs

#. Create a new orca home (e.g. /opt/orca-12080) and put a new tomcat in it (/opt/orca-12080/tomcat). Populate the new $ORCA_HOME as needed (config/ and others)

#. Modify the tomcat/conf/server.xml for tomcat to listen on a new port (12080) and start/stop.sh scripts for new port and ORCA_HOME location
