Locating the log file

Internal application messages are logged to the eHour log file. In case you run into an Internal System Error or any other anomaly, please include the log file in your forum posting.


To locate the log file you first have to change directory to the eHour Home Directory. In that directory there's a log directory holding the ehour.log file.

On Windows, how do I start and stop the standalone eHour?

eHour runs as a service and is started everytime Windows boots. To stop or start eHour, go to start -> run -> services.msc.

In the list of services, locate and double click eHour; use the start and stop buttons.

On Windows, how do I prevent standalone eHour from starting automatically?

To prevent eHour from starting automatically when Windows boots, go to start -> run -> services.msc.

In the list of services, locate and double click eHour; change the startup type to "Manual".

How can I change the default port (8000) standalone eHour listens on?

Edit the configuration file and change the ehour.standalone.port value.

On Windows you need to stop eHour before you can edit the configuration file.

You can increase the amount of data Tomcat accepts by adding the following line to /usr/share/tomcat6/conf/
