I am upgrading to Liferay 6.1.2 on a Linux server, but cannot get past the basic config, regardless of what i enter. I have tried to connect to a MySQL database by inputting the details, and after clicking on the finish button, I get dropped out and cannot connect to the server. I tried to just install it using the default database, but still cannot get a connection to the server following the basic config. I cant seem to find anything in the log files, but am really not sure where to look.

Hoping someone can help. I got version 6.0.6 working ok, but cant get the newer one to work.

Cheers

Hi Jen,

Can you please post the Exception which is displayed in the Console.It will help the community to provide you a better and fast solution.

AFAIK, the Basic Configuration is not available in the LR V6.0.6.

Regards,
Tanweer.

Sorry, I am not sure what you mean? The webpage shows the basic can't connect page:

Unable to connect

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at 198.38.90.216:8080.

The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
moments.
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
connection.
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

I am aware that there is no basic config on version 6.0.6. I got that to work fine. I am having trouble with 6.1.2.

Ok, after much research and trial and error, I managed to get past the basic config and now get the liferay portal Welcome screen when I initially connect to the server. as soon as I hit any links, however, such as sign in, I get dropped out of the server again and cannot reconnect until I kill all processes and restart tomcat, when I get taken back to the welcome screen.

I managed to get past the basic config by deleting the data directory, but am now stuck again. A review of the log files shows no errors. I am at a standstill and dont really know what to try next.

Hoping someone can help.

Cheers
Jen

Alright, it seems that I am back where I started. I deleted all files and folders and killed all processes, rebooted the server and started from scratch. I still cannot get past the basic config screen. I had a putty session open when I tried it this last time and watched as it processed the install. I got the following log, and then it crashed out again and I could not reconnect to the server:

I cannot see any errors, and I am at a complete loss as to why it would stop processing at this point.

Any suggestions??? I am starting to get desperate. :-(
