Java 1.4 installed already. Setup jre1.5.0_07 in a folder. LINUX

I am on a shared hosting server so I do not have root access to the server.

• The server already has java 1.4 installed.

• I downloaded jre-1_5_0_07-linux-i586.bin and installed it to /home/candrist/jre1.5.0_07.

• The wildfire server files are in /home/candrist/wildfire

• I modified the file /wildfire/bin/wildife.


• I changed it to INSTALL4J_JAVA_HOME_OVERRIDE=/home/candrist/jre1.5.0_07

• Every time I execute /home/candrist/wildfire/bin/wildfire start I get the following error:

testing JVM in /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_11 …

testing JVM in /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_11 …

No suitable Java Virtual Machine could be found on your system.

The version of the JVM must be at least 1.5.

Please define INSTALL4J_JAVA_HOME to point to a suitable JVM.

You can also try to delete the JVM cache file /home/candrist/.install4j

Please Help. I need a way to override the server java version and use the new one I installed.


Hi Chris,

it seems that you have a very limited server - is it a so-called v-server with no memory? I assume that you did everything right but the installed JVM fails as it can reserve enough memory.

Try running “sh -x bin/wildfire start” to see what’'s happening in the script.

Maybe you are the first to run 1.5_07 - 1.5_06 is the one most users run it. But I’'ll check the new one.

Also 1.5_07 is fine for Wildfire 2.6.2.


I was able to use a fix from another post. thanx though.
