Startup Failure On Oracle iPlanet Web Server 7.0 When Installing As One User And Running As Another User
Last updated on NOVEMBER 05, 2016
Applies to:Oracle iPlanet Web Server - Version 7.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
It is important to ensure that the user starting up the web server has appropriate write permission to the scratch (generated) dir.
The installation was performed as the webadmin id. If some other user, webuser which is part of the same group as webgrp attempts to start the web server it will fail as that user id requires write permission to the generated dir. This may be resolved by modifying the perms on that dir.
#chmod g+w default-testapp
drwxr-x--- 2 webadmin webgrp 2 Mar 1 18:49 default-testapp
drwxrwx--- webadmin webgrp 2 Mar 1 18:49 default-testapp
