Data Folder Migration

The EASA system is installed in two folders: EASA’s core system files (the installation folder or <EASAROOT>); and customer specific data (the Data folder or <SERVERDATA>) which includes all user account information, all of the EASAPs (developed, published, and saved-to-workspace) and the results data.

To change the installed name and location of the Data folder without uninstalling/reinstalling the server follow the steps below:

  • Locate your data folder. The default name and location during installation is

on Windows 7 / Windows Server 2008, and

 C:\Documents and Settings\<USER>\EasaServerData

on Windows XP / Windows Server 2003.

  • Move the folder to its destination location, and rename if necessary. In this example, the new filepath will be


  • Navigate to the <EASAROOT>/tomcat/conf/Catalina/Localhost/ folder in your EASA installation,
  • Locate the data.xml file and open it in a text editor such as Notepad.
  • Edit the following parameters in the <Context /> tag using your own value for docBase as appropriate:
 docBase=”D:\EASA\MyEASAData” path=”\data”
  • Save and close.
  • Start the EASA Server.

If the configuration changes were made successfully, the EASA Server should start and all user data such as EASAPs and results should be exactly as they were before the migration.
