Linux install, no errors but nothing else either

Did a basic install of the mfi package on Linux Mint 17 XCFE.  No errors on install, started up and is running but there is no web UI present.  Am I missing something?

 

I've done a lot of installs of other Ubnt packages on Linux.  Usually don't have trouble save for a few Java kinks.

Re: Linux install, no errors but nothing else either

What version of mongo db is it running?   Should be 2.4.x.

 

Anything in the logs?  ( /var/log/mfi )

 

Are you seeing anything running on ports 6080 / 6443 / 37017 when you run netstat?

mongod.log

 

No errors, looks fine

 

server.log

 

WARN  DynamicConnectionStatus  - Server seen down: /127.0.0.1:37017

java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused

 

...

 

Installed mFi controller on Ubuntu 12.04 fine, maybe Mint 17 is no go?  Maybe a java version issue?

 

Forgot to mention: 

Mint LInux is 64 bit

Ubuntu 12.04 is 32 bit

Re: Linux install, no errors but nothing else either

My ubuntu 14.04 lists this for java -version

 

java version "1.6.0_34"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.13.6) (6b34-1.13.6-1ubuntu0.14.04.1)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.25-b01, mixed mode)

 

I know there are problems with Java8 on Windows, not sure about Linux.

Also check and make sure there's enough disk space, etc (although I'd think that would be a mongo issue)

 

 

.... Just looked in my /etc/init.d/mfi - shows some checks supporting 6 / 7 but then

JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk

 

Not sure if that gets generated at install or if newer java versions create a symbolic link there....   Not sure what Java versions others are running but looks like forcing 6 might be worth a shot.

Re: Linux install, no errors but nothing else either

Thanks, I'll try it.  I have an ancient HP box running 12.04 that I use for a backup AirControl if our primary ever quites, I can use it for the moment.  Just getting my foot in the door with this mFi stuff.  I'm sure I'll move it to a dedicated server if I start using it a lot.

My init shows the same on 12.04 support for 6 and 7 but seems to call on 6 for startup. Make sure you restart mfi after installing jdk6

Re: Linux install, no errors but nothing else either

Help Please.    I have been running mFi controller on windows systems but it just isn't stable for any period of time.    For the first time I have installed mint on a computer recently.   Installed the newest version of java for linux and have it working.    But i can't figure out how to install the mFi controller for linux.    

 

thank you
