I am trying to install Liferay 6.1 bundled with tomcat on my Localhost on my Mac to test before spending the money on VPS

I can not get Tomcat to start and receive an error in Terminal that says

/tomcat/logs/catalina.out: No such file or directory

Ive looked all over the forums and googled and found similar post concerning the catalina.out file but none addressed my localhost issue

I'm using MAMP for my localhost, but that seems to be running fine

PLEASE HELP

Seriously? Okay, I'll spell it out... Somewhere you've defined your CATALINA_HOME variable to be /tomcat. When tomcat starts up, it will try to create or append to the file $CATALINA_HOME/logs/catalina.out.

A no such file or directory error means, in this case, that either the /tomcat directory doesn't exist or the /tomcat/logs directory doesn't exist.

Thx David,

I'm not sure if your intent was to be condescending in your reply, but I was under the assumption the forums were for people to learn and get help. who knows.

Anywho... I know error means that the file or directory does not exist. I have not defined any variables... simply followed the instructions on how to install liferay. All files are from the bundled install files that include tomcat.

My question is how to FIX the issue. Within my /tomcat folder there is no /logs folder at all.

Hi Marquis,

If you've truly used a bundle, it should by default have a /logs folder. Which means that you may have something incorrectly setup. Also, our bundles don't have the catalina.out included. They're generated upon first startup of your portal.

Sorry, too much coffee...

Well, try creating the /tomcat/logs folder and go again...

First, have you tested your tomcat installation before installing liferay? If the tomcat isn't properly installed, liferay won't work.
If there isn't any log directory, it may be a permission problem.

Those bundled packages usually results in more trouble than installing from scratch especially in this case because only the two "M" are used in this case. :-)
