Environment

Novell Vibe OnPrem 3

Situation

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

From:
http://www.something.com:8080/vibe/foldername

To:
http://www.something.com:8080/notvibe/foldername

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

Resolution

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/ssf-ext.properties.
 
simpleurl.ctx=/notvibe

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