Deploying GeoServer

Basically, the deployment of a GeoServer application is not different from the deployment of a normal Server application. Please consult Server’s deployment documentation.


GeoServer uses the GDAL geospatial library which is not thread safe at this time. Thus, it is highly recommended to not use threading when deploying – in other words, use an appropriate configuration of Apache.

For example, when configuring your application with mod_wsgi, set the WSGIDaemonProcess attribute threads to 1, unless Apache may crash when running your GeoServer application. Increase the number of processes instead.
