    How to hide Tomcat's index.html that shows by default when accessing the FE

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Primo
    • Product Version: 3

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    Preventing users from accessing the tomcats index.html file that is presented by default if the Front End (FE) base URL is entered.

    Procedure:
    There are two approaches:

    1. Rename the index.html:
    In primo Version 3.0.0 to 3.1.3:
    /exlibris/primo/p<x_y>/ng/primo/home/system/thirdparty/openserver/server/search/deploy/jbossweb-tomcat.sar/ROOT.war/index.html

    In Primo Version 3.1.4 to 4.0.0 and onwards:
    /exlibris/primo/p<x_y>/ng/primo/home/system/thirdparty/jbossas/server/search/deploy/ROOT.war/index.html

    To:

    In primo Version 3.0.0 to 3.1.3:
    /exlibris/primo/p<x_y>/ng/primo/home/system/thirdparty/openserver/server/search/deploy/jbossweb-tomcat.sar/ROOT.war/index.html.orig

    In Primo Version 3.1.4 to 4.0.0 and onwards:
    /exlibris/primo/p<x_y>/ng/primo/home/system/thirdparty/jbossas/server/search/deploy/ROOT.war/index.html.orig

    2. Changing the redirect.jps default location:

    Edit:
    In Primo 3.0.0 to 3.1.3:
    /exlibris/primo/p<x_y>/ng/primo/home/system/thirdparty/openserver/server/search/deploy/jbossweb-tomcat.sar/ROOT.war/redirect.jsp

    In Primo Version 3.1.4 to 4.0.0 and onwards:
    /exlibris/primo/p<x_y>/ng/primo/home/system/thirdparty/jbossas/server/search/deploy/ROOT.war/redirect.jsp

    Replace:
    response.sendRedirect("/index.html");

    With:
    response.sendRedirect("/primo_library/libweb/action/search.do?vid=<View ID>");
