Thanks David. I may have done some tweaking and hacking previously that got some things working. I really should jot down all my steps when doing things like this. If I can provide any additional info let me know.

Hi Glenn,

I will run through the Ubuntu instructions a couple times myself this week. I bet I'll get stuck in the same spots :) Last week I removed a bunch of things from the RedHat instructions like hardcoded version numbers, and I bet we've got some conflicts like that remaining in the Ubuntu instructions. If you don't mind standing by, I'll give it a try here on a fresh Ubuntu VM.

Hi David,

Back at it some more.

So we went back to Ubuntu 12.10

1. Followed exact apt-get install instructions.
2. Tested Apache - worked
3. Tested Jetty - worked (after editing the /etc/default/jetty file to put Nostart correct
4. Followed exact Get Chronam instructions
5. Followed exact Configure Solr instructions
6. service jetty start command returns Starting Jetty: FAILED

Luckily remembered this time to make copies of original /etc/default/jetty and /etc/init.d/jetty files

7. Replaced "new" /etc/default/jetty with original.
8. Started Jetty - says it started but not correctly
9. Put "new" /etc/default/jetty (/opt/chronam/conf/jetty-ubuntu) back
10. Replaced "new" /etc/init.d/jetty with original
11. Started Jetty - gives the correct "*Starting Jetty servlet engine. jetty..." information.
12. Can access jetty in browser
13. Solr fails - "404 Error - Problem accessing /solr. Reason: NOT_FOUND"

I have witnesses that will swear we had this running at one point. We are following the instructions exactly.

What's next?

Hi Glenn,

We haven't tested here using Ubuntu 13.04 (12.10 only so far), but you should be able to execute these instructions anywhere besides /opt (like in your home directory, or from /opt/chronam).  Can you tell us what's in the jetty log?  It should be in /opt/solr-4.3.1/logs/ if it was able to write there.

At it once again.

All instructions from followed down to "service jetty start".  Returns

Starting Jetty: Failed

Tested jetty prior to solr install and it worked.


Where should I be when I carry out these instructions?

tar zxvf solr-4.3.1.tgz
sudo mv solr-4.3.1/example/ /opt/solr-4.3.1
Obvioulsy not in /opt or I overwrite what's already there. Does it matter where I uncompress/untar?

Any ideas why jetty is failing to start?

ubuntu 13.04
Have had it working before this newest install
