In the past some locations have had some problems and limitations with the free trial. Please be patient when using this free trail. In some cases it might take minutes for the initial page to load.

Please follow these steps to host Cyclos with Jelastic:

 

Upgrading your Jelastic instance

If you already installed Cyclos on Jelastic and you want to upgrade to a new version, you can follow these instructions:

  • Open your jelastic administration panel.
  • Backup the cyclos.properties file (you can find it in the tomcat node configurations – wrench icon, in webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/classes).
  • In the "Installation manager" tab, upload a new one.
  • Choose URL, then put http://www.cyclos.org/jelastic/cyclos-x.x.x.war in the URL field and click on upload (x.x.x has to be replaced with the version you want to upgrade to e.g. cyclos-4.3.2.war)
  • Click in the cyclos4.war installation, in the package box, then click on your environment.
  • Leave the context field blank, as it will be installed in the root of the application server. Click Install.
  • When the installation is ready, open the tomcat node configuration again.
  • Refresh the left pane if needed (green arrows icon).
  • Select the webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/classes/cyclos.properties file.
  • Replace the entire contents with the contents you have backed-up in the second step, and save the file.
  • Restart the tomcat nodes.
  • Wait a few minutes. You can track the server log by expanding the Tomcat node, and clicking the log icon on it. You can find the log in /catalina/catalina.out (refresh the file every few seconds to see the progress).
