.bin wont install - (tried everything?)
I followed the tutorial “Perfect Ubuntu Server 9.04 ISPConfig3” and have set up my server to be an ISP and can access my website from the outside world. I have installed Joomla and in folders under Joomla Moodle, JFusion and Lime Survey. Everything is working perfect.
The last part of my plan is causing me some grief. I want to install the Jasper Soft BI Suite. I have downloaded “jasperserver-3.5.0-linux-installer.bin” and it is sitting on my desktop. I have followed the jasper Server install pdf and successfully installed Apache Tomcat and Java.
I have studied forums, websites and the great “How to install ANYTHING in Ubuntu”, but when I follow the instructions to install a .bin file the installation fails.
I open the terminal and here's what I enter:
sudo chmod +x jasperserver-3.5.0-linux-installer.bin
Here is the result.
myuser@myserver:~$ cd Desktop
How to install ANYTHING in Ubuntu.pdf
myuser@myserver:~/Desktop$ sudo chmod +x jasperserver-3.5.0-linux-installer.bin
bash: ./jasperserver-3.5.0-linux-installer.bin: No such file or directory
I have tried:
sudo su (then enter password)
Why is it telling me: No such file or directory” when the 'ls' command clearly shows the .bin sitting on my desktop? Is there a step I am missing?
According to the tutorials and forums the above command should launch the .bin into action the same way double clicking an .exe does. But for me it does not.
How do I get this thing to install. I am old-school .exe and this .bin process is causing me grief. I am familiar with .bin as a mountable image file, but I cannot burn an image with the jasperserver-3.5.0-linux-installer.bin
One thing I thought of could be this part of the “Perfect Server” tutorial.
9 Change The Default Shell
/bin/sh is a symlink to /bin/dash, however we need /bin/bash, not /bin/dash. Therefore we do this:
Install dash as /bin/sh? <-- No
If you don't do this, the ISPConfig installation will fail.
Can someone please point me in the right direction. I have tried to help myself by reading all the forums I can find, following the instructions, but this .bin has got me beat.
I have tried all the install scripts I can find, and also different .bin files - i always get the same result. Maybe there is something within Ubuntu itself that is blocking the installation of a .bin.
Please help. Any and all assistance is greatly appreciated.
