Attempting to setup Confluence development environment on Amazon AWS t1.micro

Setup takes forever during database setup then the system eventually kills the process. mySQL credentials verified, but anonymous account was removed.

Running Amazon Linux AMI 2012.03. It includes 64 bit Linux v.3.2, 8 Gigs of hard drive space and 613 Megs of RAM. I've installed mySQL 5.5.24 and Java 1.6.0_24 (should probably upgrade).

I've set JAVA_OPTS=-Xms200m -Xmx200m -XX:MaxPermSize=200m (not sure if that matters, but I only have 613 Megs of RAM). I've added the following lines to my.cnf for mySQL: character-set-server=utf8, collation-server=utf8_bin, default-storage-engine=INNODB, max_allowed_packet=32M. I'm at a loss of what else to do next. (P.S.: Did I mention you guys rock?!)

Hi Scott,

It seems the specified heap space looks too small for running Confluence. I have experience when running on 256m of heap size, Confluence won't run at all. Please bear in mind on the following documentation on hardware requirement.

In addition to that, please bear in mind on the default settings of heap size, in Confluence 4.2 version

JAVA_OPTS="-Xms256m -Xmx512m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m $JAVA_OPTS -Djava.awt.headless=true "

Hope this information helps, and you rock too! ;)
