After EASA is installed, the EASA web pages have been tested, and the installation has been licensed, a few other tasks remain:
On Windows systems, the EASA Server service is installed automatically.
If EASA is installed on a Linux computer and you want to make EASA run as a service, you will need to configure the service yourself. For instructions on how to configure EASA to run as a service, see Running EASA as a Service.
If you have installed EASA on a Linux computer, by default it will be set up to run only as root. The steps below will configure EASA to run as a different user:
chown --R easauser:easauser <EASAROOT> chown --R easauser:easauser <SERVERDATA>
<EASAROOT>/tomcat/bin/easa.conf to turn on port forwarding from 8080 to 80.
<EASAROOT>/tomcat/conf/server.xml so that the proxyPort setting found within the first <Connector> tag refers to port 80 and the port setting refers to port 8080.
The EASA software on your Linux EASA Server is now configured to run as a user other than root.
Note: Unless you have been advised to change EASA's memory allocation by EASA Support, the following changes are not recommended.
The EASA Server software is configured to use only up to a specified maximum amount of megabytes (MB). When you install EASA, this maximum amount of memory defaults to 1100 MB, or 1.1 gigabytes (GB). You may want to change this value to make better use of the resources on your EASA Server. The procedure for making this change varies depending on whether your EASA Server runs under Windows or Linux and whether you run EASA as an application or as a service.
Note: It is strongly recommended that you do not drop the memory setting below 500 MB in order to maintain an acceptable level of performance from EASA Server software.
The EASA Server's memory settings are listed while logged in as an Administrator at:
If EASA is run as an application, the Environment Variable JAVA_OPTS will have the default of value -Xmx1100m. To change the EASA Server's allocation to 750 MB change JAVA_OPTS to -Xmx750m. (go to Settings→Control Panel→System, click the Advanced tab, click on the Environment Variables button, and then find and edit the JAVA_OPTS variable from the System variables list).
If EASA is run as a service, the maximum memory setting in
<EASAROOT>\tomcat\bin\service.bat prior to installing the EASA service. Edit
service.bat file in a text editor, such as Notepad, and search for and then modify the default maximum memory setting of –JvmMx 1100. For example to allocate 750 MB for EASA, change the line to –JvmMx 750.
Note: If EASA has already been set to run as a service, then the existing service must be removed and then installed again after the memory settings have been changed. See the Removing the EASA Service page for details on removing the service.
To change the EASA maximum memory setting on a Linux computer, you edit the line containing JAVA_OPTS in:
Change the default -Xmx1100m value to the desired maximum memory setting. For example to allocate 750 MB for EASA, you would set the value to -Xmx750m.
