Update web.xml Context Parameters

  1. If Frevvo is installed on a VM with different external and internal URLs (very common for production deployments, e.g. “” for users, but “http://localhost:8082/frevvo” on the Frevvo host) you must update two context parameters in the Frevvo web.xml.
  2. cd to the Frevvo Tomcat webapps folder ($FREVVO/tomcat/webapps)
  3. unzip frevvo.war WEB-INF/web.xml
  4. edit the WEB-INF/web.xml file
  5. Find the context-parameter “frevvo.forms.server.external.url”. Update the value such that the URL is the one that works from the user network.  Do NOT include “/frevvo”.  Sample:
  6. Find the context-parameter “frevvo.internal.baseurl”. Update the value such that the URL is the one that works from the Frevvo; normally this will be “http://localhost:8082”. Do NOT include “/frevvo”.
  7. ​zip -r frevvo.war WEB-INF. The frevvo.war file should be updated with your updated web.xml file.
  8. rm -rf WEB-INF (to remove the web.xml you extracted before).
  9. Restart Frevvo server.
