Install on Linux or Unix
The installation of Tiny Editors for HCL Connections on Linux, Unix is automated using a shell script.
Before you begin:
- Determine the host_name of the server hosting HCL Connections™.
Get user access as the HCL Connections installer or higher administrative permissions, on both:
- The host server.
- The WebSphere Application Server Console.
Determine the Connections paths (customization_path and provision_path).
Log in to the web interface of the WebSphere Application Server Console.
The default address is: https://host_name:9043/ibm/console
Expand Environment and click the WebSphere variables link.
Find the CONNECTIONS_CUSTOMIZATION_PATH in the variables list and record the value which will be referred to as customization_path from this point.
Find the CONNECTIONS_PROVISION_PATH in the variables list and record the value which will be referred to as provision_path from this point.
Attention: We strongly recommend:
Setting up SSH key access to the Connections host server.
Using a local SSH agent to avoid password prompts when logging in via SSH. The following script makes numerous connections, and connection prompts for a password if SSH keys are not used.
install.shscript located in the root directory of the Tiny Editors for HCL Connections package as follows:
./install.sh user@host\_name customization\_path provision\_path/webresources
Remember to append /webresources to the provision_path in the above command.
Note: This command will automatically backup any existing configuration it finds in
If a backup of configurations is not required, run the install script with the optional
./install.sh --no-backup user@host\_name customization\_path provision\_path/webresources
Follow the post-customization steps to ensure the server cache is updated.
Verify the install:
Browse to the following URL: http://host_name_and_port/connections/resources/web/tiny.editors.connections/verify.html
If the installation was successful, a confirmation message appears alongside the installed version numbers.
Browse to the edit screen for a wiki or blog.
If the installation was successful, the Tiny editors will be loaded.
Note: If Tiny Editors for HCL Connections is not available, restart the Common enterprise application to force a cache update.
