- mvn clean install sakai:deploy
Edit your sakai.properties and add the following lines:
The video conference tool needs a database to store all the information. Nowadays, only Oracle and MySql servers are supported by the tool.
You don’t need to create a new database or tables. The tool will use a Sakai database and will automatically create the tables that it needs.
If you are using a MySQL database and the SAKAI_USER, SAKAI_SITE or SAKAI_SITE_GROUP tables are not established with InnoDB engine, the script will fail. In that case, after deploying the tool (and a new open meetings-tool folder was created) rename the file …/TOMCAT_SERVER/webapps/openmeetings-tool/WEB-INF/classes/mysql/sakai_videoconference_openmeetings_no_references.sql to …/TOMCAT_SERVER/webapps/openmeetings-tool/WEB-INF/classes/mysql/sakai_videoconference_openmeetings.sql
