Hosting WIRIS CAS at your server
The software and hardware requeriments to install WIRIS CAS 2.4 or supperior are as follows:
You need a licence in order to access the download page for the server installation. If you have acquired such a licence, you can proceed to the download page.
Four things must be installed in order to have a WIRIS CAS server running properly:
In what follows, we will consider that the setup machine name is <domain> and the context name of the web application inside the application container is WIRIS (these names are only examples).
3.1 Configuration file
From your private page, download the
Deploy it inside your Java application container. Then check the tests page:
3.2 Web application
Download and rename the file to wiris.war.
The setup of the web application is as simple as deploying the war file inside the application container.
Now, it is possible tot test that the servlets are properly setup writing in the browser URL:
Note that even WIRIS CAS opens propertly, it is not able to calculate until you install the Mathematical daemon kernel.
3.3 Mathematical daemon kernel
Chose a folder for the installation of the kernel daemon and unzip the file wiris-linux.tar.gz there.
The /kernel/linux/OmegaKernel.exe file must have execution permissions.
The folder database must have write permissions for the daemon.
In the mentioned folder, the daemon is started typing
The above script startups the daemon in background.
To stop, type
Observe that both the web application and the mathematical kernel daemon are deployed in the same machine. These two components communicate with each other with the port 31415.
Testing the kernel. It is possible to test that the kernel is working properly. From where WIRIS CAS was copied:
To finish, the
If you are not using a custom user to run the kernel, but the default root user, please define the $HOME variable in any way, even $HOME=/dev/null.
3.4 User manual
To setup the manual, it suffices to unzip the files in the same folder as the web application.
In order to upgrade WIRIS CAS , you only need to deploy the Web application, uncompress the mathematical kernel in the same folder and copy-paste the user manual. Then, you need to restart the daemon, which is the mathematical kernel:
By decompressing the kernel in the same folder, you manage to keep the folder database, that registers useful information about the use of the tool. Otherwise, you need to copy the folder database in a new location while the daemon is not running.
It is possible to test that the calculator works properly opening a browser and typing the URL:
or (if you have multiple languages)
Once the calculator is opened, test some operations.
WIRIS CAS is also provided with a self test at:
