To shutdown the ScrumWorks Pro Server, open your "Start Menu", and navigate to the ScrumWorks Pro Server folder. Click the "Stop ScrumWorks Pro Service" menu item.
You can also stop the ScrumWorks Pro Server via the Services dialog in the Windows Control Panel Administrative Tools.
The ports ScrumWorks Pro server listens to by default should be fine for most users. If you have pre-existing software installed on your machine, such as IIS or another copy of JBoss, you may need to change the ports ScrumWorks uses. Also, you may wish to add SSL security to your installation. Please refer to the port and SSL configuration guide.
By default, ScrumWorks Pro is permitted to use up to 768MB of memory. If you would like to modify the amount of memory used by the ScrumWorks Pro Server, run the
memory.exe tool located under the utils folder inside ScrumWorks Pro Server folder and select the desired amount of Allocated Memory.
You must run the
memory.exe tool as Administrator. Right click on the file and click "Run as Administrator".
You will need to restart the server for the changes to take effect.
Note that if the allocated memory is too large, the service will fail to start. In this case, the amount of allocated memory needs to be lowered. Please check with your Windows administrator for advice on adjusting ScrumWorks Pro server's memory allocation.
The MySQL distribution of ScrumWorks Pro allows use of the MySQL database. Before installing the MySQL distribution of ScrumWorks Pro, please read the MySQL requirements and configuration guide.
MySQL is recommended for large production ScrumWorks Pro instances, but requires systems administration knowledge to set up. The Hypersonic distribution is intended for quick and easy set up. If you wish to transfer from a Hypersonic to a MySQL database, please read the Hypersonic-to-MySQL transfer documentation.
Caution: once transferred to MySQL, ScrumWorks Pro data cannot be transferred back to Hypersonic.
