Boot fail on centos

Hi, after getting openclinica successfully working in windows im trying to run it on centos 6 on a virtual machine, unfortunately every time i install tomcat, java & postgresql i reboot and it wont boot, just freezes in the startup.

Any ideas??

thanks
Ricardo

  • Hi Ricardo,

    Not sure if the virtual machine settings need to be changed, but here is a wiki page about OpenClinica + CentOS 6. Maybe there's a hidden gotcha in there. Hope it helps, Tom

    Hi Richard,
    Have you diagnosed your OS to determine which service is causing your issue?
    >From the sounds of it, it has nothing to do with openclinica at all and is
    an issue with your OS. I would try disabling services one at a time or check
    your logs for the failure. More information on how to do this can be found
    at your Linux Distro's community site and mailing lists.
    Thanks,
    Shaun

    Hi guys,
    I think i found the problem, i build a script to install the oc, now i decided to go manual and i notice something, when creating db for oc i got this error (psql: FATAL: Ident authentication failed for user "popstgres")
    the command im using is:
    /opt/PostgreSQL/8.4/bin/psql -U postgres -c "CREATE ROLE clinica LOGIN ENCRYPTED PASSWORD 'clinica' SUPERUSER NOINHERIT NOCREATEDB NOCREATEROLE"
    ps- cant i change the password here?
    thanks

    Hi Ricardo
    Try
    sudo -u postgres psql -c "CREATE ROLE clinica LOGIN ENCRYPTED PASSWORD 'clinica' SUPERUSER NOINHERIT NOCREATEDB NOCREATEROLE"
    instead

    Hi Ricardo,
    This issue is again at the OS level and you should diagnose your OS. Please
    se my previous replies.
    Additionally see my comments on your other issues you reported below.
    You got "(psql: FATAL: Ident authentication failed for user "popstgres")"
    The username is wrong it should be postgres. Additionally the default
    install of postgres 8.4 done by our documentation does not use ident
    authentication and uses password md5 authentication. To troubleshoot this
    issue I would need to see your pg_hba.conf file.
    Thanks,
    Shaun
