Start and Stop OpenCoral

Start OpenCoral Server

There should be a startup script called opencoral-[instance] in /usr/local/coral/sbin (that has a sybolic link in /usr/local/sbin/opencoral-[instance}. As coral, do the following:

$ cd /usr/local/coral/sbin
$ ./opencoral start
Starting the Coral servers checks to see if there are already Coral servers running and, if there are, it stops them before starting the new ones. In short, opencoral start may be thought of as a "restart" command.

Stop OpenCoral Server

If you want to stop the Coral servers without restarting them, you may. As coral, do the following:

$ cd /usr/local/coral/sbin
$ ./opencoral stop
While the full path to the opencoral script that starts/stops the Coral servers is /usr/local/coral/sbin/opencoral, in most cases there will be a symbolic link named /usr/local/sbin/opencoral that points to /usr/local/coral/sbin/opencoral. In that way you can start/stop the Coral servers by issuing the commands '/usr/local/sbin/opencoral start' and /usr/local/sbin/opencoral stop', resepectively.

Start Local OpenCoral Client

As any user who has been setup in coral, do the following:

$ cd /usr/local/bin
$ ./coral
If /usr/local/bin is in your $PATH (which it typically is) you should be able to start a local Coral client from any directory by issuing the command 'coral' rather than requiring you to specify a full path. Until you have added other users to the system, only the "person" that you defined as your bootstrapUser will initially be able to start a Coral session. For a local Coral client, the log file of the most recent Coral session will be found in the file ~/.coral-log.

Start Remote OpenCoral Client

As coraluser, setup your browser to support jnlp. Then visit the sample homepage we've setup earlier. Click on the coral link. Make sure to create a Remote Password prior to running Remote Coral Client. The Remote Password can only be set when running a Local Coral Client.
