Startup Problem with Fess 13.6.3

I installed the Fess.deb on a Linux Mint 18.3 and want to startup fess.
But it exits with an error:

Exception in thread “main” java.lang.IllegalStateException: Not found the config file in classpath:

What does that mean and where should be the file?
Or do I misunderstand anything?

Thanks for help! :slight_smile:


How did you start Fess? Could you provide more information? is in /etc/fess.

Ah, okay. I started it with

sudo ./fess

That was the error. Without sudo it works. But now it’s running into JNI error. It says that my java version is lower than version 52.0. But I have installed OpenJDK Runtime Env. version 13 installed. Or is it necessary to install the Oracle Java?

For rpm/deb package installation, you need to use systemd or chkconfig. please see installation guide.

Thanks! :slight_smile:
$ sudo systemctl start fess.service
will do the trick for me.

Best regards
