I completed the installation of iPlanet 7.0.15 on Red Hat Linux 5. The Admin server starts fine, however when I attempt to start the web server I get the following error:
Oracle iPlanet Web Server 7.0.15 B04/19/2012 21:52
catastropheinfo: CORE3282: stdout: Error occurred during initialization of VM
info: CORE3282: stdout: Unable to load native library: /opt/Apps/libjava.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
: CORE4005: Internal error: unable to create JVM
failure: server initialization failed
I am not sure what is causing this error? I selected the default, "Install JDK that is provided with iPlanet" and it is located in directory:
I am not sure why the native library in /opt/Apps/libjava.so is being referenced.
I have tried several things including installing Java in /usr/bin from a download from Oracle. It appears to work just fine.
Okay this one turned out to be fairly simple. It was a permissions issue. One of my top level directories (/opt/Apps/Oracle) did not have world execute permissions. Once I changed the directory permissions the web server came up fine. It only took me 5 days to find this and fix it.
