How can I debug my controller install?



The Controller installer actually keeps a verbose log of what it is doing on every platform. The filename is of the general format i4j_log_Controller_nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.log.


On Linux, you can find it in the /tmp directory.


On Windows it is in the user's temp folder. (Type %TEMP% into the windows explorer location bar).


On Mac, once you start the installer, open up a terminal window and type:

lsof | grep Controller


You will see a result like this:

86112 /private/var/folders/np/ctwhy04n6mxdbvhlw_yjkq_cpslbk3/T/i4j_log_Controller_3263273107085015708.log


You can "tail -f" that filename to track the installer's detailed progress.
