I am installing openmrs 1.11.4 on tomcat7
OS: Ubuntu 14.04 64bit
Java: Open JDK 1.7.0_85
Tomcat: 7 (package 7.0.52-1ubuntu0.3)
In the install guide https://wiki.openmrs.org/display/docs/Step+3+-+Install+Tomcat
it says to create /usr/share/tomcat6/.OpenMRS for user tomcat6.
I did the same just for tomcat7, but then openmrs wizard does not let me install because it cannot find the openmrs-runtime.properties.
I now create /var/lib/OpenMRS for user tomcat7 and installation runs fine and a openmrs-runtime.properties gets created.
Is that the recommended directory? Does anybody else who is deploying on tomcat7 want to share
