Establish a DNS name for the Server

Hi everyone,

 i have read yesterday the opendatakit installation manual for tomcat 

https://opendatakit.org/use/aggregate/tomcat-install/

and in the pargraph that describe how can we Establish a DNS name for the
Server i have a problem...

I already setup the ODK Aggregate on a static IP eg 62.148.195.48 and
everything works fine with the webapp ...
I can see my Aggregate in http://62.148.195.48:8081/dfserv

How can i establish this IP with a DNS.. When i'm trying to create a CNAME
underneath this domain name i can't enter port and webapp
so it is not recognize the full path ...

Is there another way ?

Thanks in advance

CNAME identifies just the host, so you don't need to specify the port or
webapp -- that will remain in the URL.

I.e., if you established a CNAME:

foo.org -> 62.148.195.48

Then your server would be reachable at:

http://foo.org:8081/dfserv

To get rid of the port (8081) you would have to configure your Tomcat
server to listen on port 80 (and, for https, port 443), and you will need
to allow traffic on that port through your server firewall.

To get rid of the webapp path, you would rename the dfserv.war to ROOT.war
and remove all other webapps under Tomcat. This ROOT.war is a special name
for the blank webapp (http://foo.org)
