Installing the Google Connector v2.1.1 is a one time process for Live Forms In-house customers. The 2.1.1 connector is installed for all Live Forms Online cloud hosted customers, so you can skip the Installation step.

Follow these steps to install the Google Connector 2.0,  2.1 or 2.1.1:

  1. Make sure the version of frevvo is compatible with the version of the Google Connector you are installing. View the compatibility matrix to check the versions. If you are not using the correct version of frevvo, first upgrade your frevvo server software.  

  2. Stop frevvo'.

  3. If you are using the tomcat-bundle, the google.war file is located in <frevvo-home>/ext/connectors. Copy the war file from this location to c:\<frevvo-home>\tomcat\webapps. 

  4. If you need to download the connector separately, click here. Extract the google.war file to the <frevvo-home>/tomcat/webapps/ folder. 

    If you are currently using a previous version of the Google Connector and you want to upgrade to version 2.1, follow these steps if you are using the Tomcat bundle:

    1. Stop frevvo

    2. Download the frevvo Google Connector.

    3. Extract the google.war file to replace the existing one in <frevvo-home>\tomcat\webapps.

    4. Delete the <frevvo-home>\tomcat\webapps\google directory. If this directory is not deleted then the Google Connector will run from the old directory and the newer version won't take effect.

    5. Continue with step 5.

  5. If you are running frevvo on your local machine, you must set a domain name for your machine - otherwise you can skip this step.
