Error during installation of Backendless PRO

Hello there,

I tried yesterday installing the pro version on a Linux VM. but when the installation is complete i get this error:

Installing 0% ______________ 50% ______________ 100% ######################################## Warning: Problem running post-install step. Installation may not completecorrectly Error running /home/bicho19/backendless/ctlscript.sh start play: child processexited abnormally

Then when i try to start Backendless ( ./ctlscript.sh start ) i get this outputs:

171219 13:18:26 mysqld_safe Logging to '/home/bicho19/backendless/mysql/data/mysqld.log'.

And when trying to access Backendless i get this error too:

Unable to connect to Backendless API Server. Please contact your System Administrator

I think that's the problem, It must be IP address of the actual VM. The error log shows that the system cannot reach any of the components on the specified IP address.

Why don't you leave it as 127.0.0.1 ?

Hello,

everything works fine for us.

Please check if all services are running and check the "playServer.log" file (<installDir>/apps/backendless/logs/playServer.log)

Is this the address assigned to the host machine? The one where your VM runs?
