Yacy, Installation help for Mac

Beitragvon peevacorn » So Jun 26, 2016 10:42 am

Hey there, I downloaded Yacy but whenever I started it, the message to use the "java" command-line tool you need to install a JDK popped up.

So I installed the java from the official apple website
https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US

The message disappeared, and when I clicked on the app, nothing happened. It's just there, on the desktop. And I can't access localhost 8090.

I'm using google chrome, but i tried this on safari too, and the localhost page still doesn't load

could you please help me out?

Hi peevacorn, as it is said on the apple page you used, they offer a deprecated java version (java 6). Current official Oracle java version is java 8, and YaCy require at least java 7 to run.
So you should "download the latest version of Java for OS X directly from Oracle https://www.java.com " as stated on Apple page.
Don't hesitate to ask again if you encounter other issues.

Ok, so as an alternative way to launch YaCy, you can open Terminal and launch from command line.
Fisrt, check Java is correctly installed by typing : java -version.
Then you can go to your YaCy app folder : cd /YourInstallPath/YaCy.app/Contents/Resources/Java
And finally launch with : sh startYACY.sh
This way you may have more details on what is going wrong.
You can also look for error messages in the log file : /YourInstallPath/YaCy.app/Contents/Resources/Java/DATA/LOG/yacy00.log
