This looks like a good project but the installation is quite difficult so make sure you are a tech person. I've tried W7 and W10 on 2 different machines and much time and still not got it to install successfully. Good luck getting this part below to happen. 2.1.4. Setup Before you can use Docmenta, you have to set up the application by opening the URL in your web-browser, where <servername> is the domain name or IP address of your server and <port> is the port number which was configured during installation (the default port of the bundled Apache Tomcat web-server is 8080). If the Docmenta server is installed locally, then the servername "localhost" or the IP address "127.0.0.1" can be used to address the local machine. Furthermore, if the web-server is listening on port 80, then the port number can be omitted. Examples: /localhost:8080/docmenta/setup Use this URL if the web-server is installed locally and is listening on port 8080 /myserver/docmenta/setup Use this URL if the web-server is a remote machine with name "myserver" and is listening on port 80. The following setup dialog will be shown: Figure 2.1.3. Setup dialog This dialog is for initializing Docmenta by setting the document-store directory and the administrator password. The document-store directory is the location in the server-filesystem where Docmenta stores the application data, e.g. configuration settings, user preferences, and so on. Furthermore this directory is used as default location for storing the product data (content, styles, ...) and the exported publications. Create a new directory and enter the path to this directory (e.g. "c:\work \docmenta_base") in the document-store directory field. Furthermore, enter an administrator password and confirm the password by repeating the password in the second box. After setup this password can be used to log in as user "admin".
Excelent project, with nice features and very easy to use. Thanks.
Several fresh and excellent ideas for single-source. Very good realization. Probably this is a very unique project in the world of single-source publishing, worth notice. Hope this project will be supported well. Keep on going! Thanks!
