When you use the Windows installer to install geoserver and opt for manual start the generated startup.bat fails to start GeoServer with the message:
G:\Program Files (x86)\GeoServer 2.9-RC1\bin>call "G:\java\jre\bin\java.exe" -DGY=geoserver -Djetty.port=8080 -Djetty.logs="G:\Program Files (x86)\GeoServer 2.9
WARNING: Module not found [ssl]
WARNING: Nothing to start, exiting ...
Usage: java -jar start.jar [options] [properties] [configs]
java -jar start.jar --help # for more information
Can be fixed by adding
-Djetty.base="G:/Program Files (x86)/GeoServer 2.9-RC1/"
to the start command so that Jetty finds start.ini - I guess there is a template somewhere that needs this added.
Windows 7 Ultimate SP1,
java version "1.8.0_91"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_91-b14)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 25.91-b14, mixed mode, sharing)
Fixed on 2.9.x, 2.9-RC1 artifacts updated.
I will port to master once the 2.9-RC1 release goes out.
Is this still open?
Thanks for the reminder. Yes, this was still open, pending porting the fix to master.
Fix has now been ported to master, and I have closed the ticket.
