Manual Installation: Metering Server

When you use a servlet runner other than Tomcat, you must install the Metering Server as an individual component. The metering server must run as a servlet within a servlet runner. Use meter.war for your platform (located in the install_manual\components directory) to install the metering server.

Installing meter.war

Create an meter directory within the appropriate directory, and extract meter.war into the meter directory. Follow the installation information in the documentation for your servlet runner on where to install web applications and what settings to configure.

After you install the Metering Server and complete this initial configuration, confirm that the servlet runner has started. See Setting Up Metering.

You can edit the web.xml file to specify the location of the MSSData directory, but it is not necessary if the MSSData directory is in the default location. See Specifying the Location of Configuration Information for instructions.
