Testing the AccuRev Web Interface Installation

This topic describes how to test the AccuRev Web Interface (Web UI) installation and how to troubleshoot issues that you might encounter.

Note: Throughout this section, <CATALINA_HOME> refers to the Tomcat installation directory.

Testing the Web UI Installation

Use the following simple procedure to test the Web UI installation. You should test the installation before making the Web UI available to your end users. (See Setting Up End Users for more information about notifying end users.)

To test that the AccuRev Web UI installation is functioning correctly:

  1. Obtain a user name and password for the AccuRev Server that the Web UI will access.
  2. Test browser access to the AccuRev Web UI from these locations:

    • The machine on which you installed Tomcat
    • Another machine in your organization’s internal network
    • An Internet-connected machine outside your organization's internal network.

    To do this, open a browser and navigate to the URL used to access the Web UI
    (http://<tomcat_server_host>:8080/accurev, for example).

    If the installation was successful, a dialog box prompting you to log in to the AccuRev Server should appear. If it does not, use the following sections, Troubleshooting Tomcat Issues and Troubleshooting Web UI Issues, to resolve any issues.
