You stop SonarQube services from running. You want to log into the web UI console to set things up. You run this command:
sudo bash /opt/sonarqube/bin/linux-x86-64/sonar.sh console
But all you see is
SonarQube is already running.
You never get a network service to listen on port 9000. How do you use "sonar.sh console" to initially configure Sonar?
Run this command:
sudo bash /opt/sonarqube/bin/linux-x86-64/sonar.sh stop
Make sure you starting the script as a non-root user. Then run this:
bash /opt/sonarqube/bin/linux-x86-64/sonar.sh console
Make sure that the user who is running the command has the ability to execute files in the /opt/sonarqube/ directory. You may want to draft a command such as this:
sudo chown -R jdoe:goodgroup /opt/sonarqube
# Replace jdoe with the username that is trying to run the command. Replace goodgroup with the group associated with the user. If you do not know what group that is, log in as that user or use "su jdoe" (where jdoe is the username). Then run the command "groups".
Then run the command you have drafted.
