I am trying to install Jasperreports server 5.5 on an RHEL 6 system. If the installation is done as root user, it completes without any issues. But if the same is done with a non root user, it fails with issues regarding permission. I have checked on the forum for such cases, but they have had issues with the host names. But my /etc/hosts results as "127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4". I am pretty sure, host name is not the issue in my case.
I have tried the custom installation where I used the bundled tomcat and postgres but did not install the sample db and reportsand it fails with this message:
I also tried default install. It also fails with this message:
The bundle installer needs to be root user or sudo(ed) to be able to perform the full instalation. If you need to install as a non root user you will have to use the WAR file instalation see Chapter 5 of the Jasperserver Install Guide
@Marianol -- the following Jaspersoft community article explains that the bundle install can be done as non-root, and has specific instructions to do so [http://community.jaspersoft.com/wiki/install-bundled-package-jasperrepor....
We have installed the bundle as non-root successfully -- as one user -- but with a different user we are getting the same error as shown above. Still investigating.
==> Update: Now all non-root users work correctly when installing the bundle (as of Dec 26). No special permissions or sudo are required. See update comment below for more info.
