Hello,

So I've just installed Hudson for the first time on a CentOS server. I used the yum installer per the instructions in the Hudson book. I noticed that the service doesn't start. When I get a list of current services using the command sudo service --status-all | grep hudson I get

hudson dead but pid file exists

So I go into /var/log/hudson to look at the logs, but there's no files.

So I look into the config folder under /var/lib/hudson and find no files there either.

Hm. So does the hudson user exist? I do a sudo su hudson and then echo "$USER" and all I get back is my own username, not hudson.

So it seems the installer either failed to create the hudson user or I'm missing something.

Anyone seen this before?

Turns out, I'd assumed it would be aware of the JAVA_HOME variable which on this server is set to point to the local Java 1.7 install. It isn't. It instead went looking for Java and found an older 1.5 JDK.

It's working now. Thanks to our excellent Sysadmin for finding this one.
