To configure the connection, you should be familiar with the operating system in use, TCP/IP networks, client-server systems, and the necessary communication protocols. You'll also need XML knowledge.
Acrolinx stores terminology, analytics, and reporting data in databases. When you have a Standard Stack instance of the Acrolinx Platform, the Terminology Manager, the Analytics database, and the reporting database come with a default database.
We freely distribute the default databases, but you should only use them for testing. You'll need to connect Acrolinx to a database other than the freely distributed database formats.
To connect to external databases for terminology, analytics and reporting, use the following guides:
Since the Acrolinx Platform now runs inside containers, you can't access your databases via the
localhost host name. If you run your database on the same host as the Acrolinx Platform, you'll need to do the following to keep using it:
Configure your database to allow access from sources other than local host.
Change the settings in your
server/bin/persistence.properties. To do this, replace
localhostin the different
*.jdbcUrlsettings with the host name of your database / Acrolinx Platform host.
