If you want to access the frontend of OpenEMM and you have not defined a port forwarding rule in your firewall, do not forget to attach port ":8080" to your URL.

Is the frontend up and running? What does the status menu of OpenEMMInstaller tell you?

If the OpenEMM frontend is not running, you can not access it, obviously. Did you install Tomcat? What output is shown when you restart OpenEMM?

That sounds fine. And after restart the status menu still tells you that OpenEMM is not running?

Hi,

could you please try to restart OpenEMM once again with the OpenEMMInstaller tool and then check the logs /home/openemm/logs/catalina.out and after accessing via your browser /home/openemm/logs/access/<current date>-access_openemm.log .
As to not receiving emails: This is probably because you have the DNS records only in you local hosts file and are trying to send emails to an external email server. The server rejects such messages as they are likely to be spam from an unconfigured mail server.

Ok, the problem is that the OVA image does not have the apr utilities preinstalled.
You can install these packages with

Code: Select all

yum install apr apr-devel apr-util
Now you should be able to build tomcat native.

Can you try this?

Code: Select all

./configure --with-apr=/usr/bin/apr-1-config --with-ssl=yes --prefix=/home/openemm/opt/tomcat/tomcat-native-1.2.21 --with-java-home=/usr/lib/jvm/java

Looks like the openssl development packages are missing.
You can install them like this

Code: Select all

yum install openssl openssl-devel

Hi,
did you set the symlink tomcat-native to the version you just compiled?
E.g. ln -s tomcat-native-1.2.21 tomcat-native in /home/openemm/opt/

You can also check the chapter 10.1.1 HTTPS for Tomcat in the OpenEMM Install & Administration Guide PDF.
See here at the top.
