I am very new here but feel stupid. Just need to add the task and can't see the Dashboard link. How is this possible?


port 8080 change procedure not working

Cyril Mhone 5 years ago updated by Nguyen 5 years ago 12
I followed the Installation instruction to "edit and change variable MYCOLLAB_PORT in script mycollab.bat (on Windows)... and restart server", which I did, setting port number to 8082 but MyCollab still fails to start with the following message and errors:

It seems this is the first time you run MyCollab. For complete installation, you
must open the browser and type address http://localhost:8080 and complete the s
teps to install MyCollab.

I already have Plone installed on the same machine, with Python using port 8080 and I can't stop/uninstall or change port for that.

Is it a must that for the first-time run, MyCollab has to use port 8080?

Please advise how to proceed.

I use MyCollab from few days, it works, is simple and has a good UI.

I've some request to the dev group.
1) Don't you think will be better to have a drill down system to navigate into the tasks ?
2) Could be better to assign a group of tast to a phase with a drag and drop system or with the use of a check box.These functionalities could be integrated in all the user interface.

It seems the Dropbox connectivity is failed. I tried two times to link MyCollab with my Dropbox but it fails. I am using the latest Chrome version.

Thank you

Cannot authenticate mail server successfully

When building with IntelliJ I got to the setup wizard. But IntelliJ shows "Cannot authenticate mail server successfully. Make sure your inputs are correct" despite me having typed the correct email. What is the solution?


New installation does not serve javascript to the browser

Michael 2 months ago 0

Cloned the repo., built it apparently without any errors, then ran:

   $ mycollab-app-community/target/staging/bin/

it prints a lot of `INFO` logging but when I browse (on the same machine) to http://localhost:8080 it logs:

   16:39:03,214 INFO com.vaadin.server.VaadinServlet:825 - Requested resource [/VAADIN/widgetsets/com.mycollab.widgetset.MyCollabWidgetSet/2F3BD702BB87447504278ED3BED13696.cache.js] not found from filesystem or through class loader. Add widgetset and/or theme JAR to your classpath or add files to WebContent/VAADIN folder.

and the browser page shows a 'spinning petals' waiting indicator but nothing else.

Any ideas?
