[Djigzo users] Multipe Djigzo Instances

Where is the system variable djigzo-web.home used? Is it really necessary to set this variable? Is it possible to set it per Tomcat context?

Kind regards,
Manuel Faux

Hope the Mail can be seen this time. ;)

How does Postfix decide which back-end to use? based on sender domain?

You should be able to manage Postfix and see the log files from the Web GUI but each instance modifies the same Postfix config and shows the same log file.

Instead of modifying djigzo-web to use a different soap port you can specify the soap port in the Tomcat context file

<Context docBase="/usr/share/djigzo-web/djigzo.war" unpackWAR="false">
    <Parameter name="djigzo.system.properties"

The <Parameter> setting overrides the <context-param> setting for "djigzo.system.properties" in web.xml. In the above example, the soap port is set to 12345.

Djigzo runs on Java (OpenJDK) so you should chroot the complete OpenJDK runtime. This is probably possible although I'm not sure whether it's worth the effort since Java is very secure (unless you use Web Applets in your browser but no one is using that any more :).

Kind regards,
