Installation page hanging on "Loading" #980
I have successfully deployed the war file of bimserver v 1.5.138. Im using Ubuntu 18.04.2, Tomcat 8 and Java 8. When I start the application for the first time, it shows the message "Loading" and then never loads. Few days ago I was able to install bimserver v 1.5.125 with bimviews and bimsurfer successfully on the same computer. The following day the application stopped working (bimviews, bimsurfer and console weren't available on the home page anymore). Since then I haven't been able to install bimserver again, and I have tried several of the latest versions, I always get stucked with the "Loading" message. Any help please? Here are the contents of the logs:
root@administrador:/opt/tomcat/webapps/bimserverwar-1.5.138/WEB-INF/logs# cat bimserver.log | tail -n 50
root@administrador:/opt/tomcat/webapps/bimserverwar-1.5.138/WEB-INF/logs# cat /opt/tomcat/logs/catalina.out | tail -n 50
Logging to /opt/tomcat/webapps/bimserverwar-1.5.138/WEB-INF/logs/bimserver.log
I have the same problem as Davidaj90, on a clean install, 1.5.125 works, but all the following releases get stuck on 'loading...'
Trying to install 1.5.147 with tomcat9 on a debian9 VM, in an empty directory, I get this bimserver.log :
The catalina.out seems fine :
It is odd because on another tomcat9-debian9 VM that I installed a few days ago, the version 1.5.147 works just fine. I must have done something different but I can't, for the life of me, figure out what.
The problem in the log file is related to a "feature" of BerkeleyDB Java Edition which BIMserver uses as it's database. The default settings require about 6GB of free disk space to be available. This actually came to my attention about a month ago when someone was running on VirtualBox, which has a default VM size of 12GB, of which usually > 6 GB is used by the OS.
