Create new App
On your Windows command prompt, run this command to create a new OpenShift App.
We will call the app as jogetv5. You can change to a name that you prefer. We are installing 3 cartridges (tomcat7 mysql-5.5 phpmyadmin) on the creation of the App.
rhc app-create jogetv5 tomcat7 mysql-5.5 phpmyadmin
Using jbossews-2.0 (Tomcat 7 (JBoss EWS 2.0)) for 'tomcat7'
Using phpmyadmin-4 (phpMyAdmin 4.0) for 'phpmyadmin'
Cartridges: jbossews-2.0, mysql-5.5, phpmyadmin-4
Gear Size: default

Set working environment variable for Joget Workflow
SSH into your App. If you need help getting SSH to work on Windows, please see Remote Connection (SSH).
In your PuTTY SSH session, Execute the following command.
A line will be printed out. Copy the value.
Going back to your Windows command prompt, copy the value earlier and put into Dwflow.home variable the command below. Do remember to put your App name at the end too.
rhc env set JAVA_OPTS_EXT="-Djava.awt.headless=true -Dwflow.home=/var/lib/openshift/115e25277628e1c35b000238/app-root/data/wflow/" -a jogetv5

Obtaining Joget Workflow
In your PuTTY SSH session, Execute the following commands.
tar xvfz joget-enterprise-linux-$JOGET_VERSION.tar.gz
apache-ant-1.7.1/bin/ant setup -Dprofile.name=default -Ddb.name=jwdb -Ddb.host=$OPENSHIFT_MYSQL_DB_HOST -Ddb.port=3306 -Ddb.user=$OPENSHIFT_MYSQL_DB_USERNAME -Ddb.password=$OPENSHIFT_MYSQL_DB_PASSWORD;
cp -rf wflow/ $OPENSHIFT_DATA_DIR/
mv apache-tomcat-8.0.20/webapps/jw* ~/jbossews/webapps/
Starting up Joget Workflow
Once we executed the last command earlier "mv apache-tomcat-8.0.20/webapps/jw* ~/jbossews/webapps/", Joget Workflow webapp is being initialized right away.
However, it is highly recommended that we restart the server first to make sure that everything would works persistently.
Issue the following command in your Windows command prompt.
You can monitor its deployment of the web server by tailing the server log.
Execute the following command to tail the server log in PuTTY.
tail $OPENSHIFT_LOG_DIR\jbossews.log -f
You will see the following messages with "Server startup in x ms" indicating that the new web app (Joget Workflow) has been deployed.
