Hi All,

 

Currently I am trying to setup an AEM website on a ubuntu VM machine. What steps I need to follow for doing this:
1. I have Apache tomcat installed on port 8080
2. Apache httpd server on port 80 (for dispatcher) Not sure how to setup this. Did not find proper instruction for setting up dispatcher using Apache httpd on Linux. (Where I can download dispatcher file, Do I need to request dispatcher file from Adobe for Linux??)
3. AEM 6.5 standalone install jar file.
 
Thanks in Advance!

My below articles will give you an overview of the setup:

 

Installing AEM:

Setting up Dispatcher: Try using docker for easy setup but you'll get an idea from this article if you want to setup dispatcher by itself.

The article briefly talks about installing the AEM server first and this is straight forward before configuring it as a service as well in one of its section. What version of Java are you using and the AEM version?

Hi @Singaiah_Chintalapudi 

 

We are using AEM 6.5 version and Java 8

 

 

Thanks

This is just a notification since Java 8 removed the MaxPermSize and this is expected and should work fine. Also, were you able to login to the AEM server after startup? Your server was starting successfully but throwing that warning since its removed since Java 8.
