Home Application Network Apps SSL Explorer How to install SSL explorer on SuSE linux

Here is a brief guide about "How to install SSLexplorer on SUSE Linux". Once you download a package of SSLexplorer or digging websites, you could find well-documented guide. However, I am put some notes here that was missing from the documentation. I hope this information is informative for you and we would like to thank you for viewing.

Before start to install SSL explorer, there are two important notes.

- Java JRE 5.0 installation guide
http://java.sun.com/products/archive/j2se/5.0_04/jre/install-linux.html

- SSL Explorer quick installation guide (It comes with SSL Explorer package)

You need to install JRE 5.0 frist. Do not try JRE 6.0 yet. It support only Solaris at this time.

To verify that you package has already installed JRE, try below command. If you see below output, already JRE had installed. So, skip JRE install procedure.

vpn:/tmp # java -version

Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_15-b04, mixed mode)

1. Download JRE 5.0 from sun.com
(actually, it is end of sales, but still you can download it)

chmod a+x jre-1_5_0_-linux-i586-rpm.bin

./jre-1_5_0_-linux-i586-rpm.bin

** If you got error with JVM failure, you need to change Java home directory.
Find proper directory for latest JAVA JDK or JRE were installed.

[root@Server2 opt]# find / -name jre
/etc/alternatives/jre
/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.4.2-gcj-1.4.2.0/jre
/usr/lib/jvm/jre
/usr/lib/jvm-exports/jre
/opt/jdk1.6.0_12/jre
[root@Server2 opt]#

[root@Server2 opt]# export JAVA_HOME=/opt/jdk1.6.0_12/jre

After JVM difined, you need to try install-service again.

[root@Server2 linux]# ./install-service -j /opt/jdk1.6.0_12/jre

vpn:/opt/sslexplorer # ./install-sslexplorer

SSL Explorer troubleshooting

Well, everything was okay before rebooting my server. I tried restarting service, but id didn't help. Dang~.

I am not good at linux, so I don't know where to start. After few trials, I found a tips to bring it back up. Here is what I did.

1. Reboot

2. go to directory of sslexplorer. (In my case, /opt/sslexplorer)

3. Execute 'sslexplorer-console'

Server:/opt/sslexplorer# ./sslexplorer-console &

** don't forget put "&"

4. Restart service

Server:/opt/sslexplorer# service sslexplorer start
