Installing the Apache Web Server, Tomcat and MySql on Windows

   I wanted to deploy and test Google Web Toolkit applications on my Windows 7 laptop before I deploy them to servers.   I installed Apache, Tomcat and MySql on my Tonido Plug last week and it was tough but since it was an embedded ARM platform that was not surprising.  

    It turned out to be quite tricky to get Tomcat running on Windows 7 due to abysmal documentation.    So just in case anybody else wants to do this, I'm publishing my notes so they won't have to waste as much time as I did.

Setting Up a Web Server on $99 Tonido Plug Computer Intro PDF Print E-mail

Setting Up A Web Server On A $99 Plug Computer

The Tondio Plug Computer

   This article is a how-I-did-it article about how I got this running and configured.   I'm not a Linux expert, so I'm sure there are things I could have done more easily or properly.  But it works!

   If you ever wanted to have your very own webserver running 24/7, you can now do it for a total investment of $99.   This little champ will use only a few watts of power, and has no noisy fan.   It runs great out of the box with what Tonido puts on there, but it is also pretty easy to put another Linux on there and install whatever packages you like.   But the best part (especially for Linux noobs like myself) is that if you mess up , you can just yank your flash drive out and it will still boot the original OS.

   The software is all open source, and freely available on the web.   Getting a web server running is fairly easy.    If all you want to do is host a website, then installing Apache would be enough.

   In my case, I wanted to run Tomcat, which would allow the server to generate active content.  I.E. instead of just fetching HTML pages and images, it will run my Java programs and create web pages as the user interact with my site.

Why Oracle is Attacking Google PDF Print E-mail

Larry Ellison is a Romulan!


  Oracle bought Sun, and then turned around and launched a gigantic lawsuit against Google for violating patents involving Java.   At first I didn't understand why Oracle would be so mean.   But when I saw a picture of their CEO I finally get it.   Sure, he got a better haircut and had is ears rounded off, but it is obvious from his eyebrows that he is a Romulan!

Bold Inventions gets a new Look PDF Print E-mail

The Bold Inventions Website has been re-created using the popular Joomla content management system.Powered By Joomla

We hope you like the new look.    Joomla is quite different that any other web design software I've ever used, but the number of features available is staggering.   Every other technology I have used to create websites has fallen out of favor and been abandon.

That includes Microsoft Frontpage, Adobe Go-Live, and that Linux thing that I can't remember the name of.

Joomla is here to stay.  It will be easy to add articles and features.
