Can no longer launch Crowd successfully after following instructions to start as window service

After following the instructions to run crowd as windows service, I tried to revert my changes after it didn't work, and go back to the manual method. But now Crowd will not start at all and instead it tries to start only the open id server:

*  You can now use the Crowd OpenID server by visiting http://localhost:8095/openidserver

It stops here and only openidserver is launched, but not Crowd server.

Hi @N B,

I am sorry to hear that this instructions did not work for you and you are in this error state now. I believe that the easiest way for us to move forward would be to open a support ticket for you so we can easier exchange things like contents of your installation directory and logs.

I am forwarding this problem to our support team, you should receive an email to a support request ticket today.


Best Regards,

Marcin Kempa
