Server Installation - standalone.sh does not initialize


Server Installation - standalone.sh does not initialize

I am not an expert when it comes to SQL servers, specially using macOS, but I went through all steps from Server Installation Guide and getting help from a couple videos I finished all intalation steps.


Connection successfully establishedConnection successfully established


However, when trying to execute the standalone.sh file I get the message bellow and no acces to localhost:8080. It might be something with the java path, but how to configure it?

Re: Server Installation - standalone.sh does not initialize

Hi John,


you can specify the Java path (JAVA_HOME) in the standalone.conf files. If you are starting the server via standalone.sh you need to modify the standalone.conf file. In case of standalone.bat you need to edit the standalone.conf.bat file.

Re: Server Installation - standalone.sh does not initialize

Ok, I'm not a MAC user but I'm sure there's a way to set your PATH environment variables. I have a JAVA_HOME path set to C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_91\ and that does the trick for me.


Another thing to check into, in Linux had to do a chmod +x ./standalone.sh in the past, it might also be a permission issue.

Ok changing the path did the trick!


It was apparently a bug that when getthing the path from java from System Preferences > Java > Java > View the Path already contained the final "/bin/java" which is applied by default on the standalone.sh. By removing the final extension the installation finished properly!


Thank you RM Community!
