I am trying to run an AEM site locally on a mac I run the server using the command

java -Xmx2048m -jar AEM_6.4_Quickstart.jar

I am getting this response back:

Press CTRL-C to shutdown the Quickstart server...

So it looks like everything is running properly, but localhost:4502 is showing "This site can’t be reached" with "ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED". I am not running any Proxies and my Firewall is off, not sure what else to check. Any ideas?

can you check if it can be accessed via 127.0.0.1:4502 or with your IP?

(if above doesn't work then)

share the log from error.log when you hit the browser using http://localhost:4502

Try to open the system console (http://localhost:4502/system/console/bundles ) first and see whether all bundles are in active mode or not. If you are able to open the system/console and all the bundles are in active then there is no issue with the server. Some issue might be from the component/html or fronted.

Hi All,

Does anyone faced issue like below when accessing AEM with maven devops provision?

Failed to execute goal devops:devops-maven-plugin:1.0.13:provision (default-cli) on project aem-stack-repo: Execution default-cli of goal devops:devops-maven-plugin:1.0.13:provision failed: Exception while connecting to local JVM with pid *** via JMX: Connection refused to host: *..*.*.* ; nested exception is:
