2. Locate the base web application directory, webapps, of your Tomcat (or other Servlet/JSP container) installation.
Place the opinio.war file in this folder.

3. Restart the web server

4. The Servlet/JSP container will now unpack and create the Opinio folder automatically.

5. Set the display variable. This is necessary because the Opinio reports is producing charts that needs X-windows as an underlying graphical architecture. Use this command: set display="localhost:0.0"

6. If you are running the servlet container (web server) on another port than 8080, or you install Opinio in a subfolder other than "opinio", edit the WEB-INF/opinio.properties file. For example, if you are running on port 80, and installed in a folder called "survey", the line:
