Want to try alfresco but i'm struggling to install it

Hi, sorry for by bad english.

I'm trying to install alfresco 6.1.2 with online documentation. Before using docker, i want to setup it mannually to learn how all components work.

I followed all docs. When I run tomcat, i have no errors in logs, but it seems that tomcat doesn't start. The port is listening, but if i try to get the homepage, the browser is spinning. Same result with curl.

Re: Want to try alfresco but i'm struggling to install it

If you are talking about ActiveMQ (Messaging Queue), it is not obligatory to install it.

It's enough to paste this line in the alfresco-global.properites:

messaging.subsystem.autoStart=false
