    Hello Huziana,

    This is possible.

    - In order to do this, create an new database on your database server
    (if this is not the same server as application - not recommended for
    production environment).
    - Upload a new OpenClinica.war file giving it a name different from your
    existing/running OC instance.
    - Check the datainfo.properties file within the extracted folder and
    change the settings appropriately.

    This will result in 2 installations of OC within the same server. I hope
    this is what you meant.

    there might be a problem due to the fact, that OC expects datainfo.properties in CATALINA_HOME since 3.4

    Maybe You can setup another Tomcat Instance
    See http://crunchify.com/how-to-run-multiple-tomcat-instances-on-one-server/

    Though it might be a bit more difficult if You installed Tomcat using Your linux distribution's packet manager.
    In this case tomcat files are spread over the system according to linux specifications; e.g.
    * $tomact_home/conf/ is a symlink to /etc/tomcat/
    * $tomcat_home/logs/ is a symlink to /var/log/tomcat/
    * $tomcat_home/webapps/ is a symlink to /var/lib/tomcat/webapps/
    and so on

    also note that for postgresql you cannot separate the applications into different schemas, you need separate databases, as commented earlier.

    Hi Huziana,
    If you want to use the latest version then you must use tomcat6 for oc321 and tomcat7 for oc39.
    A short description of how to set this up can be found at http://www.trialdatasolutions.com/tds/howto/tomcat6and7.jsp
    Kind regards,
