We have installed Fredhopper server in "Ubuntu Linux Server" under "home/ubuntu/fredhopper" path and instance has been created under "home/ubuntu/fredhopper/data/instances" path with 8180 port.

But, I am unable to found the exact tomcat location where the instances are deployed.

Please provide some information about the tomcat location for the deployed instances.


  • There is no tomcat deployed with FH - it embeds an app server, and you don't manage it separately. Also, I fail to see the connection to Tridion on your question...

SDL Fredhopper has its built in web server. It does not run in an application server like Tomcat.

The instances are deployed in the [fredhopper-home]/data/instances folder, so home/ubuntu/fredhopper/data/instances in your case.

You might be confused with the SmartTarget deployment web service, this service is running in a web application server like Tomcat on the same machine as the Fredhopper indexer instance. Also see this overview in the documentation (login required).
