my name is Omer and I'm an embedded programmer in a small start-up company in Israel.
I'd like to install your issue tracker tool as a standalone on my pc for use of 2-3 people as a web server for issue tracking.
1) I tried to install the windows installation package on the pc. It just installed Youtrack under c:/Program Files and made some windows service run. Accessing locahost / locahost:8080 turned up with nothing. BTW, I pre-installed java jre8 on my computer and set the JAVA_HOME & CATALINA_HOME environment variables as necessary.
It seems as though no tomcat installation is running at all.
2) Therefore I abandoned this installation altogether and tried using my basic web knowledge to do the following:
a. Install a new tomcat server 7.0.53 on my computer with jre 8.
b. Configuring environment settings and tomcat manager settings to point to the new "standalone" installation folders location (has nothing to do with YouTrack..it's a standalone tomcat installation).
c. Testing tomcat web server on some basic web application. The server works fine uploading war files and all, running apps as required.
d. I've downloaded the last youtrack war (of version 5.1.2) that was uploaded recently. I've put this file (renaming it to YouTrack.war) in the webapps folder under my <u>tomcat installation folder </u> (different than the non-working one under YouTrack folder as mentioned in 1 above).
e. Tomcat server has extracted whatever zipped in that war file to an appropriate YouTrack folder under webapps.
f. Using tomcat manager I've been able to start YouTrack. I even ran the YouTrack service (probably not necessary in the tactics I tried in 2 here).
g. At last, I've tried to run YouTrack using that manager (or simply surfing http://localhost:8080/YouTrack
) and after a long wait it came out with the <b>"HTTP Status 500 - Your database was touched by YouTrack build 8723. Downgrade is denied, please restore your database from backup."</b> error. Please look at the end of this message for full output.
I tried reinstalling and even using different war files but it seem worthless. I've spent more than 10 hours already trying to make this thing work. If there is a possibility that simple windows "exe" installer will fix this somehow it's preferrable. Right now I feel I'm really close but some bug int YouTrack upload (database was touched by YouTrack build 8723) is keeping me from starting using this great app.
Thanks in advance,
The following is the full error output:
HTTP Status 500 - Your database was touched by YouTrack build 8723. Downgrade is denied, please restore your database from backup.
type Exception report
