  • If you are having trouble starting Mango Automation with the ma-start.bat or script here are a few things to check:

    1. MA_HOME Environmental Variable is set to your Mango Install directory (usually not required)
    2. Make sure you have Java JDK 1.7 installed.
    3. JAVA_HOME is set to the Java JDK 1.7 install directory. On windows usually: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_XX
    4. Nothing else is using port 8080 or change Mango to run on a different port. See the /classes/ file to set the new port number, read the instructions on how to use the overrides directory.

    If you still have trouble and you notice that script window briefly pops up and then the window closes: Open a command prompt and run mango from there so the window doesn't close. Make a post in this forum with the results of the script and we will help you diagnose the issue.


  • Trying to evaluate Mango.
    I am using Ubuntu. Installed JDK and Tomcat6. Tomcat6 works fine. Then extracted Mango to the Tomcat6/webapps/ROOT.
    Now browsing to localhost/8080 gives error 404.
    Looked in the Mango log. Got

    INFO 2013-03-01 10:27:45,244 (org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoader.initWebApplicationContext:209) - Root WebApplicationContext: initialization completed in 1351 ms

    I assume that derby is not installed or not working.

    Any ideas? Should I ignore derby and use MySQL?

  • Hi!
    I'm trying to install mango automation but I can't
    it appears on my window:

    Using C:\Program Files\Mango Automation\m2m2-core-2.0.6 as MA-HOME
    the system can not find the file specified.
    Using Java at java
    "java" is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    program or? batch file

    Thanks for your attention

  • Did you install the Java JDK and set the Environmental variable? Please provide more details.

  • thanks!
    the trouble was the variable for java

  • I use the java7, maybe is this problem, show error message error:missing 'server' jvm at "C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin\server\jvm.dll",but my java directory is "C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin\client \jvm.dll",if is this problem,if i need install java6,thanks.

  • Java 7 should be fine. Make sure your JAVA_HOME environmental variable is set to the Java JDK install directory. On windows usually: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.X.0_XX

  • Joel,

    Do you have an example of an init script to automatically start mango on boot (i.e. something that would live in /etc/init.d/, that I could drop in and configure with chkconfig ), and stop it on command?

    I have created one, and I can get the system to start, but I don't have a command to stop it. With a default tomcat install I get a and a which each do their respective jobs, why is there no

  • Attached is a service that I know works on Ubuntu. Place it in the /etc/init folder and then you can run "service mango start or stop". You'll have to edit the path in the script to your file.

  • I have got m2m2 installed and running. When I go to http://localhost:8080/system_settings.shtm I get the page with no values. When I start filling them in and click save I get an error...

    dojo.html is undefined

    What am I doing wrong? is there an env var I need to set? (ive set M2M2_HOME and JAVA_HOME)

  • Hard to know with out a bit more information. I would recommend starting over with fresh files, make sure you have the latest version. M2M2_HOME is not needed any more and was for an older version, just JAVA_HOME.

    You can also call in for support if you need some live help.
