Restart EntermediaDB

After upgrading EntermediaDB, you MUST restart Tomcat for the changes to be recognized.

There are three ways to restart Tomcat after an upgrade.

Option 1: As entermedia user (most common way)

  1. SSH into the server
  2. Become the user that is running the tomcat process: su entermedia
  3. $/opt/entermedia/tomcat/bin/shutdown.sh
  4. Wait a few moments. You can track when the server is stopped by running the top command
  5. $/opt/entermedia/tomcat/bin/startup.sh

Option 2:  Run as a service with sudo user

  1. SSH into the server
  2. $sudo service tomcat stop
  3. Wait a few moments. You can track when the server is stopped by running the top command
  4. $sudo service tomcat start

Option 3: From a browser (not commonly done)

  1. Install the Tomcat Management extensions. Many times we rename the url from /manager to be /tomcatmanager or you may need to download a complete version of Tomcat then rename the /manager folder
  2. Log in as the user configured in the Tomcat conf directory
  3. Select the Root web application and reload it
