Jasperserver on FreeBSD 8.2

I would like to know if anybody succesfully installed jasperserver on FreeBSD 8.2 and running it in a production environment please?

If so do you perhaps know of a special installation procedure because the standard manual that comes with the software does not describe anything for FreeBSD.

Have tomcat running but the jasperserver simply will not start up.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for pointing it out.

It seems so indeed and we are busy communicating by email.
Hopefully we can get it resolved soon.

I have enentually resolved this with a setting I did not have in my my.cnf
skip-external-locking
and then commented a setting i did have in:
#skip-networking
After reading up a bit the issue is that jasperserver uses the mysql-connector via localhost strictly to connect to mysql.
It somehow miss the UNIX socket defined on basic unix installations.

I see you are relatively new to E-E.  While I don't mind not getting points since this did not eat much of my time, I just want to point out that you mainly asked for specific leads on how to install jasperserver to freebsd, and I pointed you to the what I believe is the most popular port of the software to that OS.  So while the final solution to your problem was different, your question was still at least partially answered.  

How people can help you here depends heavily on the information you provide.  If you shared info on specific steps you have taken and error messages  you are getting, you may have found your final solution earlier here with the help of other experts, me included (i dont use freebsd but have installed jasperserver on ubuntu and centos).

Anyway, you don't have to award me points (I have more than enough :-) ).  I'm just making this comment to hopefully help you better use this site in the future.  Thanks.

Suggestion noted and accepted thanks.

Sorry for assuming I would not find much help here especially that there was not even a category for FreeBSD but simply asked to be pointed in the right direction for help.

At this point I might add that the person you pointed out which might be of help indeed did assist in debugging my issue but with no success at the time.

I then left it for a while and installed an Ubuntu box where I got it all working perfectly by simply following the provided installation notes. So out the box there is nothing really special with regards to this other than that really silly setting which I only discovered yesterday.

True if I posted some errors you might have been able to solve it perhaps but I had to pay attention to the ports maintainer giving me instructions and did not want to follow other procedures and mix up stuff and complicate matters for him at the time.

Had you said at the time: "post some errors and let me see if I can help" I would gladly have done so after the ports maintainer was finished. In fact I did reply with a very clear message that we were in the process of communicating. You really could have said: "let us know if you don't come right"

So truly sorry if I did not foresee the possibility that you might have been able to assist by reading between the lines you pointing me towards the ports maintainer. :)
