How to configure MURA CMS

Scenario:

Downloaded and installed Mura CMS from http://getmura.com/. When installing, choose to run Mura with Railo and Tomcat.

But was not able to proceed further in getting the Mura CMS initial setup screen.

Solution:

1. Added a host entry in the server.xml file;

<Host name="mura.local" appBase="webapps">
        <Context path="" docBase="C:\...\tomcat\webapps\ROOT" />
</Host>

File Location:
    ..\RAILO_INSTALLED_PATH\tomcat\conf

2. Added an entry in the hosts file.

127.0.0.1       mura.local
File Location:
    C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc

3. Restart the "Apache Tomcat Railo" service.

Successfully browsed the MURA configuration screen with the following url;
