    How do I configure Patron Self-Registration (PSR) for Tomcat WebVoyage?


    1. Set up Tomcat process
      1. Add following lines to /m1/shared/apache2/conf/ConfiguredVirtualHosts/xxxdb_vwebv.httpd.conf JkMount /webvoyage ajp13_lb_xxxdb_PSR
        JkMount /webvoyage/* ajp13_lb_xxxdb_PSR
      2. Add entry to /m1/voyager/xxxdb/tomcat/PSR/conf/ Typically, use port xx33.
    2. Set up voytomcat.ini file
      1. Add IP and port of OPAC server to /m1/voyager/xxxdb/tomcat/PSR/context/webvoyage/ini/voytomcat.ini.
      2. You may need to use localhost for IP if server IP or hostname does not work.
    3. Make any additional customizations to remaining files.
      1. patron.xml: controls which form fields display on the page, and which ones are required
      2. patron.css: controls look and feel of the page
      3. patron.html: controls page itself (headers, scripts, logo, etc.)
      4. patron.xsl: edit only if you have advanced changes you must make
    4. Set Default Patron Group in System Administration > OPAC Configuration > Patron Self-Registration. Ensure patron group has permission for OPAC activities.
    5. Load URL defined in voytomcat.ini file.
