Hi there –

I have installed the Alfresco-2.0 application onto one of our servers.  During the installation process, the HSQL server was chosen to be the database backend.

The installation process appeared to complete successfully. However, whenever I try to log into http://localhost:8080/alfresco, the page never appears. Here are some particulars about the system and the installation procedure.

The system in question is OpenSuSE 10.1 that has apache2, php5, and mysql 5.0.26 preinstalled. The Apache server is configured to start at boot, but the mysql server is not activated.

I had downloaded the JDK 5.0 release 11 kit from the Sun website, and had extracted and installed the rpm package onto the system.

Once that was done, I downloaded the AlfrescoCommunity-2.0-Linux-x86-Install script into the /opt/alfresco directory, and after making it executable, ran it as root. After that I confirmed the alfresco.sh script had the correct pathname for tomcat. Here is the text in question:
                
                   ALF_HOME=/opt/alfresco
                   cd "$ALF_HOME"
                   APPSERVER="$ALF_HOME"/tomcat

When I try to load the initial login page, the various browsers I have tried attempt to load the page, but never do so.

Has anyone seen this, and know what needs to be done to correct it? Thanks.
