Often it is required to change the simple URL of a Vibe site to include a different name than 'vibe'. For Example:



Note: 'notvibe' can be replaced with any name of your choice. It is used in this TID as an example only.


1. Shutdown Tomcat, and rename <tomcat>/webapps/vibe to <tomcat>/notvibe
2. Edit <tomcat>/conf/server.xml, and change vibe to notvibe in the following line (towards the bottom of the file):
<Context path="" reloadable="false" docBase="vibe" crossContext="true"/>
3. Add the following property to <tomcat>/webapps/ssf/WEB-INF/classes/config/

Note: This change will be reversed on every upgrade. Please take note of reapplying this on every upgrade.
