Creating a non-standard ORCA installation


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.


  1. Pick a port (e.g. 12080)
  2. Create a database 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.
  3. Create a copy of webapp/ directory and modify the pointers to the database in the following files: (see last FAQ): Modify ant/ to point to the new container. You will be running 'ant deploy' from this directory.
  4. 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)
  5. Modify the tomcat/conf/server.xml for tomcat to listen on a new port (12080) and start/ scripts for new port and ORCA_HOME location
