LogicalDOC Export

The LogicalDOC Export is a standalone application designed to extract a LogicalDOC's folder and the entire tree below into a plain local file system path.

Install LogicalDOC Export

Get the installation file from the download website. To install LogicalDOC Export unpack the zip archive then open a terminal window and execute the command from command line:

$ java -jar logicaldoc-export-installer.jar

During the setup you will be required to input the connection parameters to your LogicalDOC installation as well as the remote folder to monitor and the local target path.

On Windows, after the installation you will have a new Windows service and in the status bar a new icon will appear.

On Linux you can start / stop the tool with this command:

$ export.sh start / stop

Once launched, it will stay resident as a daemon and synchronizes the remote changes with the target file system folder.


The installer configures the export tool with common settings, but you can change them at any time by editing the configuration file located at <Export_Home>/conf/context.properties:

Log of the application
