Where should I install Mathematica (part of a webMathematica installation)?

Posted 9 years ago

Hi everybody,

I want to add dynamic content to a website and i will do it with webMathematica. I already installed Java and Tomcat, but i am not really sure where i should install Mathematica 9 into. Should i install Mathematica 9 into the default folder or should i select the web server folder instead?

Thank you very much for your help.

Best regards

It should work fine if you install it into the default location.

You can however install Mathematica where-ever you want. The key is to make sure that the webmathematica configuration points to the kernel. Quoting the installation article:

"The most important setting is KernelExecutable, the location of the Mathematica kernel. The MSPConfiguration.xml file that ships with webMathematica contains settings suitable for a default installation of Mathematica for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. However, if you install Mathematica into a nondefault location, you will need to modify this file. For example, if you installed Mathematica into E:\Mathematica, make the following setting of KernelExecutable in MSPConfiguration.xml.

<KernelExecutable> E:\Mathematica\MathKernel.exe </KernelExecutable>"

If you don't know the location of of the kernel executable, try evaluating this in Mathematica.


If you have trouble installing this, I would suggest contact Wolfram Technical Support.
