Although this project is stopped, it may still be helpful to people using openCms 5
Unfortunately this documentation is quite old, OpenCMS has since moved to version 6. I no longer use OpenCMS purely as there are not so many servers out there with tomcat. PHP seems a bit more standard these days.
If someone would like to take over this project, and carry it on please let me know ... mail me at mark(dot)miller(at)oblivion.ch
