    Non GUI Install

    Chris Hane Novice

      I'm currently using the James mail server for our productions needs; but am in the process of learning about the JBoss mail server. So I'm new to everything JBoss.

      Reading through the installation of M3, it looks like I need a GUI in order to configure the mail server. Is it possible to install & configure the server without using a GUI? None of our produciton servers have a GUI on them.

      Sorry if this is a basic question for someone familar with any of the JBoss applications.

          hi and welcome!

          There are a couple of ways. For one you can grab from CVS. For two (and this is my personal preference since I don't install X on my servers either), install on a local box with all of the settings you would on a big box. zip it and upload it to the other server. Everything is path independent except for the keystore and that is just a function of the installer. Edit server/default/deploy/mail.ear/mail.sar/META-INF/jboss-service.xml. Change the keystore path to either your real path or ${jboss.server.conf.dir}/storename.bla

          That's it.
