Redirection domain problems

Post by lesstra » Wed Apr 04, 2012 3:18 pm

Hi,

I installed OpenEMM-2011 on Debian squeeze. Everything works OK, except redirection URL's for images. For example, I cannot see them in preview of the Content Manager (the openemm_demo-cms.sql was previously loaded into the database).

I updated rdir_domain to: http://192.168.1.130:8080/openemm (LAN address of the PC with OpenEMM installation), after creating the database.
I also set this URL in the emm and cms properties files according to the install manual.
I restarted absolutely everything (database, tomcat, sendmail) after the changes were made, like a hundred times, but with no effect.
Here is what I get in the Firefox web console (when I try to open the image location link in the browser):

Request Headers
Request URL: http://192.168.1.130:8080/openemm/cms_i ... eview=true
Request Method: GET
Status Code: HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily

Response Headers
Content-Length:0
Date:Wed, 04 Apr 2012 13:31:39 GMT
Location:http://localhost:8080/ccr_image?cmTempl ... eview=true
Server:Apache-Coyote/1.1

Something is causing this 302 Moved Temporarily and is doing the redirection to localhost:8080, but I have no idea what could it be...???
Also, I don't understand why all instructions/forum posts are talking about redirection addresses that has no /openemm in it???
I mean, where is the openemm webapp hosted if addresses is just like: http://domain:port ? Web app deployment to Tomcat is completely missing from the install guide.
At last, Can this work with IP addresses instead of FQDNs at all?
Thanks.

Is OpenEMM webapp supposed to work in some kind of externalized context (CATALINA_BASE being set to install home...) ?
I did one successful installation before with explicit deployment of the openemm webapp folder, but that server had FQDN already set up, so the redirection domain was like http://www.mycompany.co.rs:8080/openemm. In this case everything seemed to worked fine, all images were displayed in previews, mails were successfully being sent, etc.
