Crucible - Run as a daemon - Mac OSX

Hi everyone,

I am running Crucible (starter edition) with PostgreSQL.

(I am also running Jira and have Jira starting as a daemon on startup. I also have the linkage between Jira and Crucible successfully working)

However for some reason I cannot get crucible to start, using the folowing instructions.

http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/FISHEYE/How+to+run+Fisheye+or+Crucible+on+startup+on+Mac+OS+X

My question relates to the FISHEYE_INST key.

Is it needed if using an external database? and subsequently, if this was set incorrectly - could it be the cause of Crucible not starting on system startup?

As always - a big thanks for any thoughts you might have!

Gavin.

The FISHEYE_INST variable designates the location of your FishEye (and Crucible) instance data and it is not related to the use of an external database.

If FISHEYE_INST is not set correctly it could certainly cause Crucible problems when it attempts to start up.

Can you provide any details about what actually happens?

Hi Connor,

If I run the start.sh script from /bin - then crucible loads correctly and works fine and dandy.

it is simply a case of; it does not start automatically on "power on" of the machine.

I created a "data" directory to be FISHEYE_INST;

I copied config.xml into that directory, too.

And when I attept to use /bin/start.sh - crucible failed to start at all.

I copied the XML back to FISHEYE_HOME and all was well again.

I am sure I am missing something simple... but obviously can't work it out for myself!

Seems I was missing a few steps;

(copying the data / var and cache directories).

Also I did not have the FISHEYE_INST variable set either.
