BonitaBPMCommunity 6.4.2, Ubuntu 64bit: Tomcat not starting


Hello, I have downloaded; made executable; run in a terminal by ./ Installation (English/English) says: everything fine, want to start Bonita? I said yes. I had choosen all defaults (e.g. installation folder). The Bonita Studio (?) starts, I can import a downloaded BPMN (os_procurement-3.0.bos) but after a while there is an error message:

'Starting Tomcat v7.0 Server at localhost' has encountered a problem
Server Tomcat v7.0 Server at localhost was unable to start within 300 seconds. If the server requires more time, try increasing the timeout in the server editor.
  • So what does this mean?
  • Do I need Tomcat?
  • Can I use without Tomcat?
  • What actions do I have to take to get things running correct?

Do you have a Tomcat running in parallel? or another software which is occupying the port 8080?

Hello Aurelien, I looked into the process list for "Tomcat", but nothing in there. I looked to the listening ports (netstat -l) for ":8080", but nothing there. Seems, that this should all be fine. Thanks, Tom
