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.

However, when trying to execute the 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?

    Hi John,


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

    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 ./ 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 By removing the final extension the installation finished properly!


    Thank you RM Community!
