[Windows] HTTP STATUS 404: /OpenKM/frontend/index.jsp

Post by nrb » Thu Jan 09, 2020 6:16 pm


I have followed the steps given in https://docs.openkm.com/kcenter/view/ok ... pment.html to configure development environment on Windows desktop and successfully ran the application. But after entering okmAdmin credentials, getting the HTTP STATUS 404 error for /OpenKM/frontend/index.jsp file.

I see that the webapps folder is not getting 'frontend' folder after deployment which may be the reason for the same. When I downloaded openkm6.3.8 war file and deployed onto tomcat server the site is working very much fine and I see frontend folder is available!! I am attaching folder snapshots for easy reference. Please help in this regard.

Also, provide OpenKM community portable development environment page as https://sourceforge.net/projects/openkmportabledev/ is not having any files!

Folder structure of webapp generated from source code compilation

The sourceforge project is totally deprecated, I will change this documentation section what seems we have missed to update. Apologies for the mistake.

I suggest download the current development environment what comes as a virtual machines with everything into ready to be used. You can download from https://www.openkm.com/en/download.html ( watch before the video for better understanding how to configure it in your computer ).
