SC 4.0 for linux 64bit - login inpossible

raimiansch

Today I had downloaded the version 4.0.0c for linux 64 and linux 32 from github. I installed it like this:
gunzip Snap_Creator_Community_Release_4.0.0c-dev_build_10-19-2012-Server_Linux64.tar.gz
cd /opt
tar xvf /home/rainer/Snap_Creator_Community_Release_4.0.0c-dev_build_10-19-2012-Server_Linux64.tar
cd scServer4.0.0c
chmod 755 snapcreator

./snapcreator --setup
..
..
modified the variable SNAPCREATOR_PATH within the file bin/scServer to SNAPCREATOR_PATH=/opt/scServer4.0.0c

chmod 755 bin/scServer

bin/scServer start

Then I go with my browser (firefox, IE) to http://:8080 and tried to login. But I always get "Invalid username/password".
I tired this with several usernames and passwords but with the same result.

What is the right procedure to install this version?

We use CentOS 6.2 64bit

Thanks
Rainer

Rainer,

When you ran: snapcreator --setup

It should have automatically updated the SNAPCREATOR_PATH for you.

The setup also should have prompted you for your username and password.

As of SC 4.0 the URL has been updated to:http://<hostname or IP>:8080/ui/

If you are getting a GUI at :8080 then you may still be running an old instance of SC somewhere.

Otherwise your steps look correct.

Please keep in mind that this is not the full community release - it was a QA release from some time ago.

That may be why you needed to manually update the SNAPCREATOR_PATH - this will not be required in the community release.

Hope this helps,

John

Hello,

Please refer the engine/etc/snapcreator.properties file

You will see an encrypted password -

Please let me know if you use that password whether your GUI lets you in.

Alternatively, you may try to change the password in the SNAPCREATOR_PASS and see if that works.

I tried this in the lab myself, and I am getting the same results as you.

I have reached out to the developers and will keep you posted with an update.

Thanks,
Siva Ramanathan
