Eclipse does not connect to AEM server anymore


Level 1


I have been using Eclipse + AEM for a couples of years already, but recently I updated the AEM - Eclipse plugin and now I can not connect to the AEM server anymore. I get this funny error:

An internal error occurred during: "Starting Adobe Experience Manager at localhost".


Any help will be really appreciated.

See the WKND tutorial - Danial covers this. Getting Started with AEM Sites - WKND Tutorial

Try re-installing the plug-in as discussed in this document.
