The system maintenance is minimal because new content is delivered from ProteinCenter's FTP site.

This chapter describes how to start and stop the MySQL and TomEE services. Most importantly it is described how to backup and restore the database.

34.1. Workspace

To keep the Workspace within ProteinCenter™ "clean and tidy" it recommended that users place their datasets in separate Categories, e.g. one per user, study or project.

When datasets are no longer used they should be archived to .csv files with the Export functionality, and then deleted from the Workspace.

34.2. MySQL

The ProteinCenter™ application uses a MySQL database server as its back-end.

34.2.1. Start and stop

The MySQL database server will start automatically on boot. If you need to manually stop or start the server use “service”.

To start the MySQL database issue the following command:

#service mysql start

To stop the MySQL database issue the following command:

#service mysql stop

To check if the MySQL server is running issue the following command:

#ps x | grep mysql

34.3. TomEE

TomEE is the web application server which is running the ProteinCenter™ application.

34.3.1. Start and stop

The MySQL database server must be running before starting the TomEE server.

The TomEE server will start automatically on boot. If you need to manually stop or start the server use “service”.

To start the TomEE server issue the following command: #service tomee start

To stop the TomEE server issue the following command: #service tomee stop

To check if the TomEE server is running issue the following command: #ps ax | grep tomee
