Installation Fail - Timeout starting Tomcat


#21

For those who are stuck with Java 10… try downloading Java 8 and install. You can switch between versions like so:

# List Java versions installed
/usr/libexec/java_home -V

# Java 10
export JAVA_HOME=$(/usr/libexec/java_home -v 10)

# Java 9
export JAVA_HOME=$(/usr/libexec/java_home -v 9)

# Java 1.8
export JAVA_HOME=$(/usr/libexec/java_home -v 1.8)

#22

There’s a difference between leveraging the latest Java in our code and just running on the latest Java. But hey, we’re all docker based :whale: so I’m happy for us to run the latest of everything all of the time :smiley:


#23

Right. By “supporting” I mean “running on”. That came up too in a conversation a couple of months ago :slight_smile:

I’m trying to install using lucee-5.2.7.062-p10-windows-installer on an Windows 7 machine and getting the failure to start the lucee service and “Error in xmlFileGet action”. I have JDK 8 & JRE 8 installed.

Hi @new2lucee,

This issue happens on latest installer for me also. Throwing Timeout reached waiting for tomcat to start After that it shows like “Error in xmlFileGet action”.

Workaround:

start the tomcat here: \lucee\tomcat\bin\startup.bat

But It doesn’t run using lucee service.

Install log contains:

@modius / @isapir / all: I’ve flagged this one. It’s been an ongoing discussion for the dev team, but, yes, we’ll want to bump it up the priority list. Stay tuned.


#27

Which version of Windows are you using?


#28

Nevermind. I found it. I’m on it.


#29

@new2lucee , @cfmitrah , or anyone else who would like to give it a try…

I’ve put up a patched installer here:
http://lucee.viviotech.net/lucee-5.2.7.062-pl1-windows-installer.exe

It tests out against Windows 7 (32-bit), Windows 10 (64-bit), Windows Server 2012 r2 (64-bit), Windows Server 2016 (64-bit). Can you give it a try and let me know if it works in your environments now?

I posted this is my Ubuntu 18.04 thread. Can we get the express Tomcat updated (especially for 5.3)? The latest 8.0/8.5 support Java 9+ and also Tomcat 8.0 is EOL next month.
