Can't Start Nuxeo Platform

Hi,

I have been running the Nuxeo Platform for a couple of weeks but it won't start after a machine reboot.

I am running 5.9.3 locally on Windows 7 16GB Ram.

There are two errors I receive:

  1. When starting through Start Nuxeo.bat, I get the following output in the command window:

Found NUXEO_CONF = C:\ProgramData\Nuxeo\conf\nuxeo.conf Found in path : C:\Windows\System32\java.exe Using JAVA = C:\Windows\System32\java.exe

    1 file(s) copied.

  1. When starting from the command line without the GUI, using nuxeoctl.bat –gui false. I get this error:

Please can you advise what is going wrong on launch?

Thanks, Lynn

ANSWER



The exception is:

java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina

This is a standard class part of the standard Tomcat installation. Something is corrupted, you should compare the files with a freshly downloaded Nuxeo, or reinstall.

Florent,

Thanks very much for this response. When I compared the C:\Nuxeo\lib folder on my machine to another, I was missing the tomact and catalina jar files. When I copied these over, the Nuxeo Platform started as expected.

Do you know what would have deleted these files? As it my local development machine, no-one else has had access to delete them.

Thanks, Lynn

There's no reason that I can see to get these files deleted.
