Installing using a WAR file
If you are running the Java servlet container Apache Tomcat, the easiest way to deploy GeoNetwork is to use a Web Application Resource (WAR):
Download the desired
geonetwork.warfile from SourceForge.
Copy the WAR file into the
webappfolder of Tomcat.
If started, Tomcat will automatically deploy the application. If not, start Tomcat to deploy.
You need to ensure Tomcat is configured with enough memory for GeoNetwork to launch. This can be configured via the
setenv script in Tomcat with the appropriate memory for the JAVA_OPTS property.
