Checking InContext Server Installation

The typical G11n system is installed using the Lingoport Stack Installer. If that is the case, then the InContext Server should have been installed at that time. If your system was updated with Lingoport Stack Updater, the InContext Server needs to be installed manually.

To check:

$sudo systemctl status incontext-server

and output:

● incontext-server.service - InContext Server Service
  Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/incontext-server.service; disabled; vendor preset: disabled)
  Active: inactive (dead)

If the output says something about the service not found, then it needs to be installed following the Installation Steps below.

If the service exists, then proceed to the Running the InContext Server below and start the service.

Installing Manually

InContext Server Installation Requirements

The InContext Server requires the following:

  • Java 8
  • MySQL 5.5.3+

Since the Lingoport Suite already requires Java and MySQL, the only additional requirement for the InContext Server is Tomcat. The InContext Server provided by Lingoport installs Tomcat 8.5.x.

InContext Server Files

There are three files that comprise the InContext Server. The Lingoport InContext Server automated installation process will put these files in the appropriate location.

  • incontext-server.war
  • IncontextServerConfig.groovy

The incontext-server.war is the server itself and must be placed under the tomcat/webapps directory.
The file is a script for starting/stopping the InContext Server and must be configured and placed in the tomcat directory.
The IncontextServerConfig.groovy file is the configuration file for the InContext Server and must be configured and placed in the tomcat directory.

Installation Steps

1. Download and unzip the IncontextServer-<version>.zip file from our SFTP site.

2. Change directory: cd incontext-server

3. Modify install.conf to set the values required by the install. Any information left blank will be prompted by the install script.

  • MYSQL_ROOT_PASS - this is the password that was used or created by the Stack Installer or Stack Updater.
  • INCONTEXT_MYSQL_USER / INCONTEXT_MYSQL_PASS - this is a new MySQL username and password.
  • INSTALL_TOMCAT_HERE='/usr/local/tomcat' - Unless there is reason to change the location, leave it at the default.

4. Run the install script (note you must have sudo privileges): ./ If it is successful, one should see:

Incontext Server successfully installed.
