Trouble starting fisheye

I wanted to test running Fisheye on a new server. So I installed version 2.6.6 onto a Linux box by unzipping the zip file and ran the bin/run.sh file as root. However, I get the following error message and Fisheye does not appear to be running:

ERROR - Could not create control server: Invalid argument

I'm using the default config.xml that came with Fisheye.

Please advise what could be causing this issue and how to correct it.

This error is probably caused by a network setting in your Linux.
Please have a look at this knowledgebase article.

Run "sysctl net.ipv6.bindv6only" to check its setting.
If it is set to "net.ipv6.bindv6only = 1", turn it off by running "
sysctl -w net.ipv6.bindv6only = 0".

If this doesn't work, try to set it by JVM parameters.
Add "-Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true" into
FISHEYE_OPTS.
