Thingworx not working

Hi,

I am trying to install Thingworx for Navigate.I have installed PostGre SQL database 9.4.11 and Apache Tomcat 8.5. I have done the configurations as per the Thingworx installation guide.I have created ThingworxPlatform folder and placed the json file in it mentioning the license details.Later I created the ThingworxStorage folder and ThingworxBackupStorage folder. When I try to launch the Thingworx, its not getting launched showing the attached snap.

No content is created in ThingworxStorage folder.I re-deployed Thingworx.war file but that hasn't helped.Still the ThingworxStorage folder remains empty.If anyone has faced same kind of issue, please do help me out here.

Regards,

Akshay

Have you ran the postgres scripts (db and schema setups)? 

Also, you should not be creating ThingworxStorage and ThingworxBackupStorage folders yourself. Please remove and let tomcat create them upon deployment.

Hi, 

Thanks for your reply. 

Yes, I had ran the postgres scripts, but still its not working. Folder ThingworxStorage and ThingworxBackupStorage is not getting created. I have added THINGWORX_PLATFORM_SETTINGS in the system variable.

I don't understand what am I missing out.

Did you copy and place Thingworx.war in Tomcat/webapps folder or did you deploy it through a browser? What path did you put in your environment variable? You only need to do that if your tomcat is on a different drive from the ThingworxPlatform folder (which should be in the root of that drive).

Yes I copied and pasted the Thingworx.war file in webapps folder and have not deployed through browser.

THINGWORX_PLATFORM_SETTINGS is the system variable added with the value C:\ThingworxPlatform; also I have added the same in PATH if in case it works but nothing helped. My tomcat is in the same drive installed i.e C: drive.

Hi,

 

Try restart Tomcat and then check Tomcat logs. What error is showing?

I think this is regarding unsupported versions. If such is the case, please help me out.

Hi,

 

Please do the following steps to find out your JRE version and JDK version.

JRE check:

java -version

 

JDK check:

javac -version

 

 

Both should show something with 1.8, if versions are different then that is the root cause of the error.

 

Thanks,

Raluca Edu
