In addition to the documentation on the Fedora site, Richard Green has written a very practical tutorial for new Fedora users.

Rhyme setup

We are going to initially use rhymeOur development machine is rhyme.dlib.indiana.edu, aka fedora-dev.dlib.indiana.edu. Its core stats are: Dual CPU 3GHz each, 6G RAM, 420G usable disk space.

Connects to Oracle database on ora-iudlu-dev (urania). When we move Fedora to production, we will need to convert to a production database.

Uses port 9090 for service, 9005 for shutdown, and 9443 for redirect. This keeps it from conflicting with any Tomcat instances running on the same machine.

  1. Login to your rhyme account
  2. Login to the Fedora account: su - fedora
  3. Type in password (same as the Fedora administrator password)
  4. Ensure that Fedora is not running: fedora-stop
  5. Start Fedora: fedora-start oracle
  6. Log out

Thalia setup

Our production machine is thalia.dlib.indiana.edu, aka fedora.dlib.indiana.edu.

Connects to Oracle database on ora-iudlu (erato).

Uses port 9090 for service, 9005 for shutdown, and 9443 for redirect. This keeps it from conflicting with any Tomcat instances running on the same machine.
