I've followed the installation instructions listed here: https://docs.openkm.com/kcenter/view/ok ... ebian.html

When I try the final step of starting tomcat, the tomcat service starts but when I check network status, it is not listening on port 8080. I'm a bit stuck and I'm not sure how to proceed.

I am installing on Ubuntu 20.04, tomcat version 8.5.34 downloaded from Sourceforge.

Also worth noting that this file does not exist on my system:


Happy to provide more info if needed.

Might be better change the owner to the user openkm and start as a regular service ( service by default is configured to run the application with the openkm user -> should exist in your OS )
