I ran xWiki from 2008-2014 before I left my last company. I’ve decided to set it up in my current organization, but it has become an extremely painful process.
I’m attempting to install the latest LTS version of xWiki (13.10.10) utilizing the war file and Apache Tomcat. (8.5.84) using OpenJDK 17 and MariaDB (10.5.16) on Rocky Linux 9.1. I’m using the Installation instructions provided on the xWiki site including the MariaDB setup.
I’ve started the application, then updated the configurations that exist in the WEB-INF and other expanded directories when the war file is expanded.
I then restart Tomcat, but xWiki does appear to even attempt to connect to MariaDB and create the tables. There isn’t any logs pertaining to databases or anything. No errors, nothing database related. There is nothing to point me in the direct direction to figure out what might be wrong. I’m at a loss trying to figure out what to check next as even searching Google providing anything relevant that I can determine as being relative to what I’m experiencing.
I’m sure it’s something simple that I’m missing, but I’ve tried to follow the install steps, step-by-step and even read through the config files to see if maybe I was missing something.
I’ve even wiped out the the xwiki expanded director in webapps and started afresh thinking maybe I just missed something and would try again.
My experience with xWiki’s versatility is why I really wanted to use it again, but I’ve never had this much difficulty just getting a wiki to even start.
Any help would be highly appreciated or if there is a way to at least force xwiki to initialize the MariaDB database.
