I couldn't connect to port 9090 until I added a rule in iptables
sudo iptables -I INPUT 7 -p tcp --dport 8080 -m state --state NEW -j ACCEPT
What do you mean?
Did you have an Tomcat instance running on the same server?
If is the case, then I believe the easy way to solve it would be to uninstall Alfreco and install it again, using a different port, like 9090.
Yes, that is correct. However, it did not ask me what port to use when I installed Alfresco.
Thank you for your help!
You have to choose the Advanced install.
The basic one will use default ports.
Ok, I uninstalled it and reinstalled and used port 9090 and I still can't connect. It times out.
Any other thoughts or suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
Are you using the text mode?
I am asking this because that is what I know better, and I know it offers the option to set the custom port.
Would you mind copying all the setup process text and sharing it here?
Yes, I am using text mode.
Sure! Thank you again for your help!
I upload the file alfresco-community-installer-201707-linux-x64.bin via FTP to the server.
went to the directory it was uploaded to and used the command
./alfresco-community-installer-201707-linux-x64.bin to install
it ran the set up. The first time I did it, I chose the simple install
and when that didn't work, I followed your directions and uninstalled it
and then reinstalled it. This time, I chose the advanced install and selected
different ports. I chose 9090 as the main port. The install completed
and didn't show any errors and started running, but I can't connect to it.
http://10.1.12.225:9090 is the url but it times out.
Apache still works and is up and running.
netstat -an | grep 9090
anybody listening there?
for details. There are lot of info obviously.
netstat -an | grep 9090tcp6 0 0 :::9090 :::* LISTENtcp6 1 0 127.0.0.1:44138 127.0.0.1:9090 CLOSE_WAIT
Do you have a local firewall in your Centos machine ? Check your iptables to open 8080 or 9090...
Additionally, you should validate that the host name of the server can be resolved in DNS too, and check that the IP address and the host name of the server are correctly set in /etc/hosts
