I hope someone can help. I renamed a war file to zip, extracted the contents, since it's a web application, I don't know what is required to execute the java application though cPanel ?

Hello @Mr_Roboto,

As a website owner without root access, you'll need to contact your web hosting provider to verify if Tomcat is installed on this server. It's only available as part of an experimental repo with EasyApache 4 at this time (see: Tomcat Support in EasyApache 4).

Thank you.

It sounds as if your saying, without Tomcat support, I won't be able to run any file part of a Java WebApp ?
How can I know this for sure, that is what I want to know unless there is nothing to know beside I need Tomcat installed on the server and it will work ?

Is it still possible to get Tomcat support installed, if I don't have full administration privileges; is it still possible to install or I must have administration privileges ?

That's correct. Your server will need to run Tomcat (which is currently only supported in EA3). This document explains how the application deployment process works in EasyApache 3:

How to Deploy Java Applications - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

We do offer Tomcat support in EA4 as part of our experimental repo, but it's not yet ready for production (you can refer your hosting provider to the feature request URL in my previous response to see if they plan to use it going forward).

Is it still possible to get Tomcat support installed, if I don't have full administration privileges; is it still possible to install or I must have administration privileges ?
No, you will need root access to the server to do this.

Thank you.
