1.3.2. BMFO Installer With ORACLE

Follow these steps if you are installing BMFO with an ORACLE or ORACLE XE database backend. If you are using PostgreSQL as the database backend, refer to Section 1.3.3.

The BMFO installer is available from http://bmfo.sourceforge.net.

Run the BMFO installer (bmfo-setup-XXX.exe).

Choose ORACLE as your database backend.

Make sure that the following components (Figure 46) are selected:

When asked for the database connection information (Figure 47), enter the database name and superuser password as entered during the database installation process (Section 1.2.1 or Section 1.2.2) and click Next >.

TOMCAT Connection (PostgreSQL)

Figure 48. TOMCAT Connection (PostgreSQL)

Verify that the TOMCAT port number is correct, enter your TOMCAT administrator password (Figure 53 like entered in Section 1.1.3) and click Next >.

[Caution] Caution

Unlike shown in Figure 53, you will most probably be using a different port than 8080 because ORACLE is occupying port 8080. Review the port number critically. Check that TOMCAT is up and running on the port you expect if necessary. See the TOMCAT documentation for details.

You can accept the default installation location as shown in Figure 49.

Click Install.

Once the BMFO installer has finished, you should be able log on to BMFO using the shortcut from the Start Menu.

The default URL is http://localhost/bmfo/.

See the Quick Start section in the BMFO user guide.

The default user name is bmfo and the default password is bmfo.

[Warning] Warning

It is recommended that you change the default password "bmfo" for the ORACLE user bmfo as soon as possible for security reasons.
