trouble getting Alfresco to start

HI all,

I've installed Alfresco 3c on centos 5.2, with JDK v6, and no issues during the install. Started Alfresco using the  alf-start.sh script … no issues.

When to the browser, put in http://localhost:8080/alfresco and all I got was a 404 report from Tomcat, "The requested resource (/alfresco/) is not available".

Entering http://localhost:8080/alfresco brings up a login screen, but the default username and password do not work. The message titled "Failed to Login" has the message "The remote server may be unavailable or your identification details have not been recognized".

Entering http://localhost:8080 brings up a blank screen. I would have expected a tomcat default page?

Any ideas?

I found the Tomcat log file catalina.out that had a number of errors which are beyond me: eg.

08:58:52,431  ERROR [web.context.ContextLoader] Context initialization failed
org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'org.springframework.remoting.rmi.RmiServiceExporter' defined in class path resource [alfresco/emailserver/email-service-context.xml]: Invocation of init method failed; nested exception is java.rmi.UnmarshalException: Error unmarshaling return;

log4j:ERROR LogMananger.repositorySelector was null likely due to error in class reloading, using NOPLoggerRepository.

… and then ends ..
