After EASA has been installed, the EASA web pages have been tested, and the license has been installed, a few other tasks may remain.
The EASA Server service is installed automatically on Windows.
Linux must be manually configured, see Install EASA as a Linux service.
By default, EASA will run as root on a Linux computer. The steps below will configure EASA to run as a different user:
The Linux EASA Server is now configured to run as a user easauser.
Tomcat8 is the default name when EASA is installed to run as a Windows service.
EASA's default memory allocation is correct for most cases. However if EASA Technical Services advises increasing the amount of memory available to Java, please follow the steps below:
The EASA Server is configured to allocate 1100MB (1.1GB) of memory for Java. The procedure for raising or lowering the maximum heap size depends on whether the EASA Server runs under Windows or Linux and whether its runs as an application or as a service.
The memory setting should be at least 500 MB to maintain an acceptable level of performance from an EASA Server.
Additionally, raise the maximum heap size available to Windows services by running regedit, by modifying the third number in the SharedSection entry:
If EASA has already been set to run as a service, then the existing service must be removed and then installed again after changing the memory settings, see Remove the EASA Service for details on removing the service.
