Endeca – Troubleshooting Article – 1

By | June 19, 2014

As many of you might have encountered below error one time or the other. The question is some errors are obviously self-explanatory v/s others are not. I’m planning on publishing a series of articles which will help the community on quickly getting the possible solution to the issues @ hand.


Check if you Endeca services are up and running (typically the HTTP service)

On a Windows machine – you can go to Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools > Services in order check if the HTTP services is running or not – Also, you can check on the Endeca Tools Service.

On a Linux box you can check the status of Platform Service and Tools Service using the ps command e.g.

ps -ef | grep tomcat
