  • Web Application Platform and Teamwork Cloud should be installed on different machines.
  • Before installing Web Application Platform, make sure you know Teamwork Cloud, Authentication server and FLEXnet server data, such as the host name (or IP address) and port. You will need to enter this data during installation.
  • After installing Web Application Platform, it is recommended to disable the web container (e.g., Apache Tomcat) on the machine where Teamwork Cloud is installed.

Installation for testing purposes

If you want to install the Web Application Platform for testing purposes only, you have to install it on the same machine as Teamwork Cloud and Authentication servers. You can do it in two different ways:

  • Install Teamwork Cloud. Web Application platform with the Resources, TWCloud Admin, and Cameo Collaborator web apps will be installed together with Teamwork Cloud.

    Testing Cameo Collaborator

    To check if Cameo Collaborator is installed together with Teamwork Cloud, go to the <Teamwork_Cloud_installation_directory>\WebAppPlatform\webapps\webapp directory. If the collaborator folder is in this directory, Cameo Collaborator is installed and you can test it after applying the Cameo Collaborator license.

  • Run the Web_App_Platform_<version number>_win64.sh file and choose the Quick Install option.

This section explains how to install the Web Application Platform using the executive file (the second option described above). It installs the platform using default property values. You can change these values later if needed.
