HTTP Status 404 – Not Found


#1

I am attempting to experience “Instant Gratification with Flowable 6” but get the “HTTP Status 404 – Not Found” error described here. As suggested in the referenced post I have attempted to restart tomcat8 but notice that when I stop the server using /usr/share/tomcat8/bin$ sudo ./shutdown.sh the server keeps working because I can see both
http://localhost:8080/
and
http://localhost:8080/sample/

So I rebooted by computer but everything behaves the same as before I rebooted.

I have copied all 5 of the war files into /var/lib/tomcat8/webapps and I see that they have been expanded into the 5 corresponding folders but I can’t access
http://localhost:8080/flowable-task
http://localhost:8080/flowable-idm
http://localhost:8080/flowable-modeler

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

The easiest way to get started with Flowable is to use a Docker image.

See: Getting started with Flowable

I’ve actually tried using docker. When I execute

sudo docker run -p8088:8088 flowable/all-in-one

The script hangs up on this step

INFO [main] org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina.start Server startup in 48978 ms

So I type [Ctrl+C] and the script finished but without and docker image.

sudo docker ps
CONTAINER ID        IMAGE               COMMAND             CREATED             STATUS              PORTS               NAMES

You are running Docker in interactive mode so everything is working as expected.

Don’t type ctrl+c but rather open a new terminal session and execute the following command:

docker container ls

@phillip.toone what do you mean by you can’t access the endpoints?

Maybe you have another tomcat running or something else running on 8080.
