Hardware and Memory Requirements for your Live Forms Server
The minimum recommended hardware configuration for your Live Forms server is:
- 2 gigahertz (GHz) 64-bit (x64) processor with 4 cores
- 5 gigabyte (GB) of system memory
- 100 GB hard drive
However you must size your hardware platform to your specific form usage characteristics. As the number of concurrent users and forms/flows increases so must the system memory. Refer to the memory configuration topic for the details.

The database configuration that was done in the <frevvo-home>\tomcat\conf\catalina\localhost\frevvo.xml file has been moved to the <frevvo-home>\tomcat\conf\server.xml file. Also, note that the datasource in the server.xml file has been renamed to jdbc/sharedfrevvoDS so that it can be shared by
Configuring the database has not changed. The difference is that it is now done in the server.xml file and not frevvo.xml as in previous releases. When you configure your database, make the changes in the v7.2.0 server.xml file. Do not replace configured sections from a frevvo.xml from a previous release into the v7.2.0 server.xml. file.
Email Configuration is still done in the frevvo.xml file. Custom configuration parameters are still configured in the frevvo.xml file.
