    Question

    How to properly stop and start Apache and Tomcat?

    Answer

    1. stop Tomcat: as the voyager user:

    For Voyager 8.0 and higher: /m1/voyager/xxxdb/tomcat/tsvrctl stop
    For Voyager 7.x:
    cd /m1/voyager/xxxdb/tomcat
    ./vwebv/tsvrctl stop
    ./vxws/tsvrctl stop

    (if any additional tomcat processes are running - vpds, vprimo - stop each of those prior to stopping vxws)

    1. stop Apache (as the root user, /etc/init.d/httpd2 stop)
    2. start Apache (as the root user, /etc/init.d/httpd2 start)
    3. start Tomcat: as the voyager user:

    For Voyager 8.0 and higher: /m1/voyager/xxxdb/tomcat/tsvrctl start
    For Voyager 7.x:
    cd /m1/voyager/xxxdb/tomcat
    ./vxws/tsvrctl start
    ./vwebv/tsvrctl start

    (if you run any additional tomcat processes - vpds, vprimo - start vxws before starting each of these)

    Additional Information

    If restart of Tomcat only needed, can also use UTIL menu for Voyager 8.1.0 and higher:

    1. dlib xxxdb
    2. util
    3. W. WebVoyage Utilities
    4. T. Restart tomcat services for xxxdb
