Given below are the options that are available when starting a WSO2 product. The product startup scripts are stored in the
<PRODUCT_HOME>/bin/ directory. When you execute the startup script, you can specify the relevant startup option as shown below.
See the topic on running a product for detailed information on how to start a WSO2 server and access the management console.
Listed below are some general options that can be used for starting the server.
|-start||Starts the Carbon server using "nohup" in the background. This option is not available for Windows.|
|-stop||Stops the Carbon server process. This option is not available for Windows.|
|-restart||Restarts the Carbon server process. This option is not available for windows.|
|-cleanRegistry||Cleans the registry space. Caution: All registry data will be lost.|
|-debug <port>||Starts the server in remote debugging mode. The remote debugging port should be specified.|
|-version||Shows the version of the product that you are running.|
|-help||Lists all the available commands and system properties.|
Listed below are some system properties that can be used when starting the server.
|-DosgiConsole=[port]||Starts the Carbon server with the Equinox OSGi console. If the optional 'port' parameter is provided, a telnet port will be opened.|
|-DosgiDebugOptions=[options-file]||Starts the Carbon server with OSGi debugging enabled. Debug options are loaded from the |
|-Dsetup||Cleans the registry and other configurations, recreates DB, re-populates the configuration and starts the server. Note: It is not recommended to use this option in a production environment. Instead, you can manually run the DB scripts directly in the database.|
|-DserverRoles=<roles>||A comma separated list of roles used in deploying Carbon applications.|
|-Dprofile=<profileName>||Starts the server with the specified profile, e.g., worker profile.|
|-Dtenant.idle.time=<time>||If a tenant is idle for the specified time, the tenant will be unloaded. The default tenant idle time is 30 minutes. This is required in clustered setups, which has master and worker nodes.|
Note that from Carbon 4.4.1 onwards, if you want to start your product as a worker profile, you must set the following system property to 'true' in the product startup script before the script is executed.
