Warning

v7 License Key Required if you are upgrading from a version prior to Live Forms v7.0.x

Request a v7 license by emailing support@frevvo.com BEFORE you begin the upgrade. v5 and v6 licenses will not work. 

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.

Insight Server Memory Requirements

It may be necessary to increase heap size for the Insight server, when reporting on/indexing a large number of submissions. Refer to the memory configuration topic for the details.

Database Configuration moved to server.xml file

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

Frevvoproduct
and the Insight server.



...

Email Configuration is still done in the frevvo.xml file. Custom configuration parameters that were added to the frevvo.xml file in previous releases are still configured in the frevvo.xml file.
