Firstly verify the supported platform for CQ5.4 at . It is possible to install cq on same server but it deponds on hardware and memory requirements please refer . In my development envirnoment we are running all instance is same server. Specific to your query answers are
* Yes you can install author & publish on same server. Make sure the ports are different.
* You can access WCM through webserver for that additionally you need to install and configure dispatcher please refer .
Thanks for the information.
We are planning to install the author and publish on one server and dispatcher and webserver on the second server.
I have installed the publish instance to /cq54/publish directory. But I am unable to access the http://localhost:4503/content/geometrixx/en/company.html. How can we verify that publish instance is installed?
$ java -version
java version "1.6.0_29"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_29-b11)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.4-b02, mixed mode)
Can you access http://localhost:4503/ ? http://localhost:4503/crx/ ? Is the publish process running? What kind of message are you getting accessing the publish instance? Are there any suspicious entries in the publish instance's log files?
Without this information it's pretty hard to help.
Verify all the logs in publish instance for any error at /cq54/publish/crx-quickstart/logs
* Go to http://localhost:4503/crx and if it ask for licence key provide those details.
* Go to http://localhost:4503/admin and verify launchpad and crx are installed.
