404 error

The ongoing saga of me getting Alfresco installed! First i tried docker, couldnt find out how to fix the users not being shown error. So moved to the Loftux install and got 404 errors after a restart, so tried Loftux on a vanilla 16.04, same problem. Undaunted i tried Abhinav Kumar Mishra coprehensive instructions on Centos and ran into a Pgadmin install problem, So i swapped to Win10 and again i get a 404 error.

This really cannot (shouldnt) be this difficult. I dont understand, i am a pretty good small company sys admin, but alfresco appears to resist being installed at all costs!!

Any ideas why i am getting licence errors?

Re: 404 error

It seems like alfresco user and role is not setup correctly. This error indicates the same: Cannot create PoolableConnectionFactory (FATAL: role "alfresco" is not permitted to log in)
at

Just checking the steps in docs and blog, this should be done to allow alfresco connect to db

  • Create a new user named “alfresco” and set a password which will be used by alfresco content service to connect to database. Here we will be using username as “alfresco” and password “alfresco”.
  • Create a new database named : “alfresco”, make sure you select default encoding which is “utf8”.
  • Grant all permissions for user “alfresco” on database “alfresco”.
  • Alternatively, you can open the query tool and execute following SQL queries:
create role alfresco LOGIN password 'alfresco';

create database alfresco encoding 'utf8';

grant all on database alfresco to alfresco;

Re: 404 error

Its been an interesting day, thanks for the assistance venur, you were correct, i simply couldnt see the wood for the trees after lots of playing. I dropped the DB and user, recreated both and reset permissions. I then found that i had made some errors in the scripts, double checked all and eventually it started OK.

I then noticed that i didnt have shared services, did some googling and found this ran applie_amps and it broke alfresco with another 404 error. After i recovered my PC from the window i'd thrown it out of i restarted and tried again. This time it all worked.

My only issues now are performance tuning, i am running on a W10 machine in a VM with 32GB RAM. Does anyone have any Java mem recomendations?

I have some startup problems, i am using this batch file and i get this once or twice untill it eventually works;

C:\alfresco-community62ga>start.bat

Examine the log output.

And finally i get a few errors in the logs;

Re: 404 error

I think i've fixed the imageconvertor problem, it would appear Imagemagick has renamed convert.exe to magick.exe and the dynamic version doesnt work in Win10. So i simply downloaded the static version, installed it on another PC, copied magick.exe out, renamed to convert.exe and dropped it into C:/alfresco-community62ga/imagemagick/

Re: 404 error

Yes thanks Eddie, all up and running. The moral of the story being RTFM.

Still got the tuning quesiton to answer, i.e. what are best settings for 32G RAM and cannot connect to our SMTP using self cert. Have pretty much gone through every Javamail option, have installed the cert in Java, still complaining.

Re: 404 error

The question is not necessarily "What are best settings for 32G RAM" but "What are best settings for the dimension of Alfresco system you are planning to run", e.g. how many concurrent users, number of nodes (content / folders) are expected, complexity of metadata model etc. In general, the default configuration of Alfresco would not even be able to really use 32G if you gave the process that much.

In general, I would say running the Repository Java process with

-XX:+UseG1GC -XX:+ParallelRefProcEnabled -XX:+UseStringDeduplication -Xmx4G -Xms4G

should be more than sufficient for most "standard" (unaltered Alfresco) use cases with a few hundreds of thousands of nodes, externalised transformations etc. (as expected for a 6.2 install). The Share process can be run with only 512M of RAM, while the Search Services is highly dependent on the size of the index, and I typically give it at least 1G.

In addition to the Java process memory, care should be taken to give the DB access ample memory (based on the size of the tablespace) to ensure most of its common operations can be performed in memory to limit/avoid IO-induced latencies. And last but not least, having memory "remaining" on the OS is also recommended to allow for OS-level IO caching to again limit/avoid IO-induced latencies for DB / Search Service operations.

Re: 404 error

Thanks Afaust, perfect. We are a small company, 10 users, 100 or so folders. So quite light.

Any thoughts on forcing Alfresco to accept our mail server's self cert?
