Unpacking the Application Files

The application code for Connect Daily is distributed as a WAR or a ZIP file. A WAR file is basically a Java JAR file, or ZIP file.

Copy the Connect Daily.WAR file from the installation media to the directory you would like to install them to.

  1. Create the sub-directory for the web application.
  2. Change to the sub-directory.
  3. Unzip the files using the command

    jar -xf ../ConnectDaily.WAR


    unzip ConnectDaily.WAR
  4. Set the permissions on the directory so that your web server can read the files. On UNIX issue the command:

    chmod -R o+rx installationDirectory

    On Windows, use the Windows Explorer program to set the permissions.

If you are using Apache Tomcat, you will probably want to extract the files in the $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps directory or create a context descriptor XML file that references the Connect Daily path.
