This document describes the installation of VisualDiff from BlueSpice. VisualDiff is a exclusive component of BlueSpice pro! Please note that the Apache Tomcat server must be installed and configured on the BlueSpice server.

Tips for this Document

  • Please, read this manual completely and work through the single installation steps one after another. 
  • For editing the configuration files with a text editor, the files must be saved in UTF-8 coding without BOM (Byte Order Mark).
  • The placeholder <installpath-bluespice> stands for the path to your BlueSpice installation, e.g C:\inetpub\wwwroot\bluespice (Windows) or /var/www/bluespice (Linux).
  • The placeholder <tomcat-webapps> stands for the path to the Webapps directory of your Tomcat server, e.g. C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 8.5\webapps (Windows) or /var/lib/tomcat8/webapps (Linux).
