Question asked by plaixx on Oct 18, 2010
Latest reply on Oct 18, 2010 by derek
I recently installed alfresco community edition through the use of the standard installer.
I"ve done this on 2 test machines without problems before trying to deploy the package on my server using the exact same installer.

After a succesfull install i'm having a problem that alot of ppl seem to have whereas trying to login into share gives me an "The remote server may be unavailable or your authentication details have not been recognized." error and /alfresco gives me a 404 resource doesn't exist.
Checking out my logfile in C:\Alfresco\tomcat\logs i get

** END NESTED EXCEPTION **
Amongst other errors, which makes me think it's a problem with the connection to the mysql Database.
I use the bundled one but when i open it with a Mysql client i can see that the alfresco database is empty.

I've read a couple of posts adressing the same bug but have yet to find a solution that works.

Info:
Alfresco community installer 3.4a win 32
OS: Windows Vista



Any help will be much appreciated
