Common Problem: Not yet solved-Alfresco won't start

Question asked by reloded on Mar 13, 2008

Hello all.
Were looking into alfresco for deployment in the organization. Yesterday I experimented with Alfresco on my laptop with Ubuntu-desktop-Gutsy- and it worked flawlessly!
So today, I moved to a "serious" installation on a dedicated server. I am using Ubuntu server Gutsy-NO GUI with MySql database.
I followed the same instructions as installing on the laptop a day earlier but I ran into the following error when starting.
Since I had installed yesterday, I was so sure it would run that I had started making a comprehensive howto. Then I ran into this problem! But once I solve this I'll post the howto here.

when I key in: /etc/init.d/alfresco start
using top command I see that Java is running then it terminates at some point.
The database is not populated either.

What could be the problem? Any pointers? I've seen this thread here
http://forums.alfresco.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=10973&p=36335&hilit=illegalstateexception#p36335
but it wasn't solved and someone fled from alfresco coz of it. Is it such a big problem?


Please assist.

Thanks
