Configuration error during headless server install

We generated a XML and are trying to get the headless server installed, but we keep getting this error:


 AM com.rapidminer.server.installer.install.Installer getInstallerRootDirectory
INFO: Installation directory is: /etc/rapidminer/rapidminer-server-installer-7.3.0
Configuration file is not a valid RapidMiner Server installer configuration file! DB Driver path invalid: /usr/share/java/mysql-connector-java.jar

We do have the 'mysql-connector-java.jar' available in the specified location.

Does anyone have an idea where to start looking?

    The check simply looks whether there is such a file and whether it's actually a file.

    Potential failure reasons:

    • file not found
    • it's a folder
    • it's a symlink
    • insufficient permissions to access file

    you can also copy the jdbc driver to the 'data/jdbc' folder of the installer. The path of the driver should then look like this 'data/jdbc/mysql-connector.jar'.

    To install the server go to the root directory of the installer and execute the corrsponding script: './bin/rapidminer-server-installer ./bin/installer.xml'
