  • Hello, i am trying to run mango free 3.0.1 on Debian Jessie

    uname -rv
    3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt25-2+deb8u3 (2016-07-02)
    java -version
    java version "1.8.0_131"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_131-b11)
    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.131-b11, mixed mode)
    echo $JAVA_HOME

    I copied mango files in /opt/mango directory
    I have changed permissions to all /bin scripts,
    but when I am trying to execute script:

    sh start 25: Syntax error: Bad fd number

  • I suspect

    mkdir "$MA_HOME"/logs/ >&/dev/null

    should be

    mkdir "$MA_HOME"/logs/ &>/dev/null

    in your script.

  • There is something more, but still does not want to work

    sh start
    MA_HOME is /opt/mango 30: source: not found
    /opt/mango/bin/ line 99: -server: command not found
    ma-start: MA started with Process ID:  2178
    ma-start: no restart flag found, not restarting MA
    ma-start: MA done

  • Ah, that explains why the first error occurred, I overlooked you were using sh. In bash the &> and >& are equivalent in that place I pointed out. The hashbang is /bin/bash, is there a reason you're using sh?

  • I must apologize to you. Of course Mango is now working fine. I am beginner in unix system, so I'm making so basic mistakes. Thank You for your help.

  • No worries, it's what we're here for! Please feel free to post any and all questions you have (well, it can be good to try to answer them for yourself first, of course)!
