Modified on Thu, 14 Mar 2024 at 12:25 PM

Details of Linux configuration needed to be carried out prior to deployment on server

                              Linux 3.13.0-74-generic x86_64
Distributor ID : Ubuntu
                              Description : Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS

1) First you need to update your Ubuntu packages to latest version, to do that run following terminal with root privileges
    apt-get update

2) To Install Java 1.79 use following command, you need to run these commands in terminal with root privileges. These will Install JDK 7.
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer

3) Now Disable headless mode, to do that open file "WILDFLY_HOME(path where wildfly is installed)/bin/standalone.conf" and replace value 'true' with 'false' for headless mode.

    headless = "True"

4) Change memory setting, as you have 8G of total physical memory you can allocate 6G to wildfly to do that open file "WILDFLY_HOME/bin/standalone.conf" and set memory.
To set 6G :  JAVA_OPTS=”-Xms6G –Xmx6G”

6) To allow other users to access your server Internally, replace with in file "WILDFLY_HOME/standalone/configuration/standalone.xml"

      <interface name="management">
          <inet-address value="${}"/>
<interface name="public">
<inet-address value="${jboss.bind.address:}"/>
<!-- TODO - only show this if the jacorb subsystem is added -->
<interface name="unsecure">
<inet-address value="${jboss.bind.address.unsecure:}"/>

7) To start wildfly you need to go to path "WILDFLY_HOME/standalone/bin" and execute command "sh"
