Downloading the ZIP file

Installing

Linux

To install Virgo Server for Apache Tomcat on Linux, unzip the distribution package to the desired installation directory. For example, to install into /opt:

prompt$ unzip virgo-web-server-3.7.0.M01.zip -d /opt

This creates a directory called virgo-web-server-3.7.0.M01 under /opt.

Virgo Server for Apache Tomcat requires write access to the installation directory, in this case /opt/virgo-web-server-3.7.0.M01. Typically this means it must be run as the user that installed it, or the installation directory’s ownership must be changed.

Microsoft Windows

To install the Virgo Server for Apache Tomcat on Windows, unzip the distribution package to the desired installation directory. You should use a zip application such as 7zip, not the built-in folder decompression. Note that both Windows and Java have some issues with long file names and file paths, so we recommend installing to the root directory of your chosen drive.
