Hello! My name is vrunda :) I am trying to move a webpage that I created on bonita portal from local host(localhost:8080/bonita) to a server named "sftp://txcslnawb1v" .
I tried to copy the .bar file and the .xml file that I created from my machine to a folder in this server (using filezilla).
After that I tried to access it with this url: http://txcslnawb1v:8080/bonita, unfortunately I don't think this is the correct way since I am getting "unable to connect" on the web browser.
I need to host this asap and I am really getting confused. It would be great if some one could help me with the correct steps. Thank you :)

Hi Vrunda,

I think you're missing something...and you need to learn a lot more about how servers etc. work from what I'm reading. This is not meant to be bad, just that what you're saying means you need some further learning...

first you cannot have a server called "sftp://txcslnawb1v".

What you have is a server called "txcslnawb1v" and you have an applicaiton called SFTP sitting on the server that allows Secure File Transfer Protocol to be used for transferring of files.

The next thing is you MUST install Bonitasoft Portal onto the "txcslnawb1v" server. You cannot just move a page and hope it works...the whole Bonitasoft comes with a Tomcat/Apache webserver that has to be installed to run the web application.

Here is my considered steps of things you have to do:

  • Gain access to the server "txcslnawb1v"
  • Install Java
  • Install you database (if used)
  • Install Bonita Portal
  • Configure Bonitasoft
  • In your Studio Export the BAR
  • In your Portal Import your BAR

The tomcat bundle for linux is a better option for you, the jboss bundle is more complicated to use ( maybe), i use the tomcat bundle in this site:

http://sigmaq-15122015-01.bitnamiapp.com:8080

The server is a free AWS (Amazon web server)

  1. Download the tomcat bundle
  2. Upload the tomcat bundle to your server, review if java is installed on your system
  3. For demo i use the h2 db integrated in the tomcat bundle
  4. Extract the tomcat bundle
  5. With a command line run the ./startup.sh, this archive is in /bin
  6. Export the .bar file in your designer for each process that you create
  7. Import the .bar file in your portal at the server

Well, it is tough to handle technicalities behind website hosting. When I was looking for a cheap CDN , my friends helped me to know about the best hosting options available at https://inxy.hosting, so we discussed all about our budget and requirements before proceeding, and it helped making the right decision.

It is going to be a fantastic experience for me to have a website of my own, so that it becomes easier to display the pictures of my oil and glass paintings online, and sell them at the best price. Therefore, my friends helped me to get a Godaddy coupon and reduce the web hosting charges as low as at 99 cents.

I was eager to build a fresh website for my content writing services, but the only thing which hindered the process was making the choice for the best web hosting service that suits my pocket size. At last, I consulted some of my friends, who help making the right selection after comparing the various options.

I think that the website performance largely depends on hosting provider. Therefore, it will be advisable visit WebHostingGeeks.com and follow simple steps that help finding out the best web hosting company that suits your need.

Thank you everyone for your answers. I installed JBoss bundle on my server, which is on Linux. I am trying to access Bonita Portal through this Url http://txcslnawb1v:8080/bonita, I am getting "unable to connect".

I got "deployed "bonita all-in-one-6.5.0.ear"" on the terminal so I am pretty sure that it has been installed successfully!

Can anyone please tell me where am I getting wrong? Thank you.

Have you tried it on the machine itself with

  1. http//localhost:8080/bonita

if this works then it's installed.

If you are trying from another machine...you might have a firewall issue where you must open the ports to allow traffic in and out...

Thank you Sean, I tried to run ./standalone.sh -b= server_ip_address and it is working now!

Though I cannot get in the Bonita portal with the credentials of "walter.bates" and "bpm", like I used to on localhost:8080/bonita. Do you know what could be the problem? Thank you.

When you install a server portal you do not get an Organization. You have to build it for your organization. You can export and import the one from studio using the user install pw install...

The installer will not work on Linux.

However to answer your question,

Personally I would get the Tomcat Bundle and use that. Very easy to use.

Thank you for your detailed answer Sean. I will have to download the bonitasoft for linux in order to install it on the server. I am confused on whether should I download the installer or the jboss bundle for linux. If you could help me out with that, it would be great. Thank you.
